Bottle bought at K&L in Redwood City. Poured into trappist "chalice."

A: Hazy peach-like tint of orange / amber.

S: A bit of brett funk, black pepper, stonefruit.

T: White bread or cookie-dough malt flavor, light sourness with even milder horseblanket funk, peaches. Some hoppy bitterness in the finish that sticks around in the aftertaste.

M: Light-medium body. Moderately effervescent. Very drinkable.

O: Complex, enjoyable, pretty well-balanced. Could be a little less bitter (or at least have a more cirtusy hop profile) to be really excellent.

A - Hazy orange color with a thick, slightly off-white and creamy head that quickly recedes. A little lacing, but still nice.

S - Barnyard, tart lemon and hints of green apple.

T - Nice funky, yeasty Brett flavors with tart citrus and green apple.

M - Nice and dry. Medium carbonation. There was a lot when I opened the bottle, but it settled a bit through the drink.

O - This is just a really interesting beer. A great saison with some wild yeast characteristics that are balanced very well. I could drink this all day, especially when it's hot. Any saison fans should seek this out.
