Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass. Batch #2 March 2014.

A real nice orb glowing lemon body color, opaque and shiny. Head makes an easy fluffy and rock bleach white head, with hints of creamy whipped topping. A solid classic looking saison.

Real nice fruity and big nose. Small hints of oak and vanilla, with a big lemon brightness. Mild brett quality and minimal funk to go with it.

Palate comes off light body, almost grisette in quality. Strange yeast finish a bit, with almost a flattened bread dough that has not risen. Fruit lemon and very good brett heat with an easy tolerance. Nearly crisp, moderately dry. Minimal and subtle oaky quality, hard to detect because of the lighter mouthfeel.

Overall a pretty solid creation between the two breweries, I like this Grassroots project.
