On tap at Clinton Hall in NYC: Pours very hazy gold color with a huge white fluffy 2 finger white head that faded very slowly, leaving very good lacing and foamy rings.

Smells of wet grass, barnyard funk, lemon, grains, caramel, floral hops, pepper, coriander, dry yeast, cardboard, white wine and the general outdoor earthy notes associated with this style. Very light and champagne-like nose that was soft and subtle yet with very nice complexities.

Tastes of sweet fruit like green apple, pear and lemon, followed by very dry yeast, wet grass, barnyard funk, toasted grains, caramel, floral hops, pepper, coriander, tea leaf almost like potpourri, honey, cardboard, white wine and toasted oaky notes. Herbal notes mix with the barnyard farm animal hair essence that jumps in with the mild carbonation from time to time. As much as I like the dryness and authenticity of the brew, I wish it had just a tad bit more fruity sweetness to add some depth.

The dryness is incredible and the brett leaves a chalky feeling that's almost tart yet has champagne similarities that keeps it light, flavorful and going down way too easy for this ABV. The aftertaste is grainy, sweet and gives tart white grape flavors that resemble the bitter white wine grape right before fermentation. Very tasty beer, really enjoyable but a little less flavorful than I expected.

Poured into a Haw River Farmhouse Ales teku glass. Back label says Best By: 07/2018

A- From a steady pour comes a two finger head on top of a hazy medium amber color body. The head retains well before eventually becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a mostly full sheet of surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a broken ring behind.

S- Very balanced aroma of semi-funky Brett and notes of peach, apricot and pineapple. Effervescent.

T- Fruit juice, Brett funk, slightly tart. It's all there and in fine form. The tangy Brett is there from start to finish as the citrus notes ride on it and then turn to a slightly bitter aftertaste. A tad sweet but mostly it's the yeast making up the flavor profile. Alcohol is very well concealed. Damn near perfect.

M- Sharp and tight from the yeast and medium-high carbonation. Lightish body.

O- This is just about everything I look for in a Brett saison. You'd be hard pressed to find a better example.
