Served from bottle into a Westbrook snifter (proper!). Poured a hazy golden yellow-orange with a three finger pure white fluffy head that subsided to one finger very slowly. Maintained nice lacing through. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, fruit, spice, funk, earth, and barnyard. The flavor was of sweet malt, fruit, big funk, spice, earth, and horseblanket. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a fairly good brew. I found it really quite interesting what was going on in this one. The aroma definitely had a big gaminess going on that was quite intriguing for the style with the fruit character mixed in. On the flavor it was dominated by funk without a doubt. If you love massively funky brews AND Saisons, this is your brew without a doubt.

A - Has a hay hue to it with an eggshell head. Very bubbly head that lingers around. Great lacing and retention.

S - Funkyyy... Lemon zest, white pepper, spices, somewhat sweet malts and green apple. A wide array of smells in the glass.

T - White pepper, bready malts, apples, spices and funk. I'm sure I might be missing some things, but the flavors really are blending well together.

M - Light bodied, high carbonation. Has a dry finish.

O - This one hits the spot. Not under or over spiced, very well balanced.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

P: Cloudy pale orange tinted golden body with a massive rocky white head. Retention is legendary and leaves a solid cream cap with cliffhanger lacing.

S: Barnyard funk, soapy yeast, chicken coop, dried whole oats, sourdough, potent spices that flood the nose and leave it tingling. Minerals, salt, apricot, honey, an old canvas tarp, booze and cedar. Really opens up the nasal passage like an aroma therapy room.

T/M: Lots of earthiness, unwashed grain, flaky oats, cedar, sunflower seed shells, pineapple tea tannin, bandaids and spicy hops. Presence of floral bitters and white grape barrel in the finish. The spice profile is aggressive and grand. Vivacious moderate body that finishes dry with a metallic presence.

O: This is a great looking beer that has an amazing nose that leaves it almost numb from spice cEarthy and spiced up saison that really impresses. A well crafted brew!
