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

Tried two different batches of this on my recent trip to CS.

Both pour a clearish gold with decent white head.

Batch #6 - Smell is slightly funky and musty. Taste is funkier, with more oak and a slightly dirty taste I assume comes from the Brett. 4/5

Batch #7 - Smell is lighter and more tart. Taste follows suit with more tartness and less funk. 4.25/5

Between the two, I much preferred batch #7. Interesting to see the variation between the batches.

Reviewed from notes. Poured from 375 mL bottle into a Cigar City pint glass.

A: Light gold, hazy, with moderate visible carbonation and a half-finger of white head.

S: Oak barrels up front, white vinous, a bit funky, grassy and fresh hay, and light cracker malt.

T: Light malt, sweet grape-y white wine, dry oak tannins, and a restrained barnyard funk. Some undertones of lemon citrus, and mild saison peppery. Dry and a bit of black pepper on the finish.

M: Light body, good carbonation sensation, and essentially no alcohol presence.

O: This is pretty tasty. Easy to drink with great flavors. Well-done, recommended.

Poured into a tulip glass from a 375ml bottle.
Batch 6
Vintage 2013

Pours a very nice hazy golden copper color. There is a thin white head that forms and recedes pretty quickly. Seems lightly carbonated. The color is very nice with bright orange hues giving life to the brew.

TRaditional Saison nose. Grainy and earthy with delicious notes of mild lemony tartness in the nose. Strong vinous character is present with some slight grape sweetness and some nice tannic grape skin tartness. There is definitely some slight sugary and fruity sweetness in the nose and some good funky and musty barnyard aroma. Corn husk and hay come to mind.

Flavor profile is a bit more muddled. Starts off pretty funky with some mild tartness that is definitely more vinous than the nose would indicate. Pleasant mild tar notes envelop some of the vinous character with some mild citrusy and lemony acidity. There is definitely some underlain funk and musty wood notes that make the brew very refreshing. Mouthfeel is light and carbonation is light. Might benefit from some more bubbles. Overall this brew taste yummy. The vinous character shows up really well and blends nicely with the woody funk.
