4.24/5 rDev +12.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
On tap at Smoke and Barrel
Appearance: Pours a mostly clear pale gold color with yellow hints. Slight haze. Brilliant color. Pours a small head that retains very well. Thick lacing.
Nose: Lots of hop character on the nose. Bright citrus. Tropical fruit. Pale malt sweetness. Pineapple. Red berry. Hints of funk, but I would say the aroma leans toward the hops. Very fruity overall aroma.
Palate: Opens with a big pineapple note and lots of juicy citrus. Pale malt structure. Quite dry. Slight hints of acidity and funk. Very dry finish that brings slight brett funk. Moderate bitterness. Very nice
Mouthfeel: Very appropriate for the style. Not quite spritzy but well-carbed. Light leaning toward medium bodied.
Overall: Love this beer. Some age would likely bring out more Brett character, but I love it now, with hints of dry Brett funk and big fruity hoppiness. Delicious.
Serving type: on-tap

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Paper wrapper around an unlabeled bottle.
Appearance - Pale hazy yellow. Big white head on the pour. Settles to a large-bubbled white collar.
Smell - Lemon lime aroma. Kinda yeasty. A little bit of pale malt.
Taste - Much more herbal. Lemony hops. Grassy. Grainy malt. Grassy bitter finish.
Mouthfeel - Flavor drops off with a lot of carbonation. Medium bitter.
Overall - Doesn't quite do it for me.

The European version, brewed in Belgium. Best before 12/2018 on the cap.
Pours pale lager-golden, fizzy, two finger frothy head, medium retention.
Smells really fruity, with huge tropical pineapple, mango, maracuja, faint pine, peaches and citrus, with farmhouse ale funk afterwards, but toned down. So Mosaic hops bigger than Brett yeasts in the smell.
Very dry gulp, rather citrusy with huge grapefruit, tropical notes in the back, with pineapple and faint sweet mango, acidic apple peel too. Musty (champagne-like, actually) white grapes. Green funk follows, with wet hay and the whole barnyard notes, nicely matched with the hops. I can see that many people might find the wet cardboard very clear, too, but i'm a big fan of any Brett funk, so i might be biased. Crisp dry, more than mildly bitter finish.
Very light body, quite a big carbonation that complements the wild yeasts and the citrusy hops, really prickly. Alcohol nicely hidden.
A very refreshing hoppy saison, my first experience with a Mosaic-only brew, but somehow it's not perfectly tweaked, feels abbrasive and clumsy. Will be looking for more Mosaic hopped beers tho, very very tasty.
