Poured from bottle into HF Tulip. Not sure of the year bottled, but im assuming 2013.
Popped cork and brett funk filled the nose (and I opened this outside!)
Pours a nice golden color with a healthy froathy head. Really nice carbonation.
Aromas of brett funk, slight floral notes, and a tad of caramel or sweet notes maybe??
Taste is fruity brett funk with a definite floral punch...a nice sweet fruity caramel finish. The typical saison like flavors are somewhat muted but still know its a saison.
Its really dry...pretty much perfect. I mean this is an absolute perfect mouthfeel for me. Really nice carbonation, dry, but still chugable with a bitter kick to finish.
Overall, this is an amazing brew as you can expect from Gabe. Really freakin awesome!

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Despite a fairly underwhelming hue and carbonation, this is a well balanced sour ale. The nose is fine blend of barnyard funk and fresh hops - a little different than the usual saison. The wild yeast comes through again on back of the tongue and is joined by light fruit - raspberries perhaps? The finish is dry yet lingers.
