Pours a slightly hazy orange. Almost pumpkin color. Fluffy white head that recedes slowly leaving a sticky lacing. Bubbles rush from the bottom of the glass.
The smell is quite wonderful. Super citrusy hop aromas, pretty intense for a saison. There is a solid earthy bretty backbone though. A good amount of funk that balances and compliments the hop aroma. This beer has the spirit of homebrew, I can tell already.
Wow, this is one of the most unique beers I've had in a while. Nice funk and a touch of sourness complimented with piney citrus hops. Lots of hop flavor, but quite smooth bitterness. Ridiculously refreshing. Herbal floral and spicy notes, everything Belgian complimented with American hops. Bready malt backbone that adds a touch of sweetness. Though this is beer is practically as dry as it gets.
Velvety body with a nice burst of carbonation. Finishes super dry and some lingering funk and hops.
I am curious about how it might age. I'd like more funk, but the hop presence is perfect.
This beer is amazingly drinkable. I can't stop taking sips. The funk is quite present but not overwhelming. The hop presence is huge but not overly bitter.
My first beer from this brewery and I'm looking forward to many more.

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.
