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

375ml C&C bottle (Batch 001) poured into an Idle Hands tulip.

A - Pours a pale, straw golden color, moderately hazed with a finger of frothy white foam that falls slowly and leaves foamy sheets of lacing on the glass.

S - Somewhat white wine-like in aroma on first sniff. Rather grapey, definitely fruity overall, a touch spicy, extremely mild funk going on, and even though it is just blueberry plant derived yeast, I think I am getting a little bit of blueberry in here too. Rather yeasty, faintly tart, even getting traces of alcohol.

T - Hmmm, rather bland in taste. Dry, biscuit and yeasty, bready malt base. A bit peppery/spicy with a medium-ish hop bitterness. Fruitiness is reduced compared to the aroma, still getting suggestions of blueberry - probably subliminal in nature.

M - Lower level carbonation for the style, lightish-medium body. Spicy, yeasty, estery in taste, smell, feel - very farmhouse-y overall. Tends towards wine-like too.

O - Interesting...but not very exciting. Fairly ordinary tasting saison/farmhouse ale. I insist that I am getting hints of blueberry throughout - can blueberry plant derived yeast really do that? Nothing really sets this apart from others in the style. I would drink this regularly without any issue, but I know how good the style can be, so I'd probably regularly be left wanting something more...

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

375ml cork and cage bottle poured into a tulip glass.

A: Hazy golden color. Creamy white head settles quickly. Wispy blotches of lacing.

S: Bready and crackery malt with some whiffs of wheat. Mild tart/acidic scent. Yeasty, cellar must. Vague berries and fruit skins start to dominate. Almost a cranberry sort of impression.

T: Crusty bread and coarse wheaty flavors. Very mild tartness. Yeasty, "cellar" taste. Vague fruit and fruit skin. Spike of alcohol hides in a controlled phenolic edge. Mild balancing hop bitterness. Musty, rustic yeast finish.

M: Medium bodied. Full and firm feel. Carbonation prickles and scrubs assertively.

O: A medal winner at the GABF. Nothing mind-blowing really, just a good saison with a nice rustic charm.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Served from 375ml C&C bottle into a Crooked Stave tulip. Cellar temp.

Appearance- Hazier gold with quick bubbly white head that left no real traces.

Smell- Very bready/yeasty, mild sugary sweet blueberries, light crisp hops, malts.

Taste- Bready yeast, no real "wild yeast" presence or blueberry presence, light crisp hops, light alcohol, sweet, hoppy finish.

Mouthfeel-Highly carbonated, light burn, light bodied, clean finish.

Overall- Dissapointed with this beer. No "wild" characteristics, no blueberries. Nothing it claims to be.
