look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.75

Pours a slightly cloudy, dark golden orange color with tangerine edges and a massive 2.5 finger head that very slowly settles into a thick, lasting cap.  Large chunks of soapy lacing left behind.

Earthy, slightly musty aroma with some funky brett, pale malt, light fruit and a strong citrus component.  Some tangerine, papaya and blood orange along with farmhouse funk and an overwhelmingly strong brett presence. The musty yeast character overpowers the other notes making the aroma a bit one dimensional.  

Medium bodied and with strong carbonation and prominent funky brett flavor.  One dimensional with all brett and mineral flavor.  Musty funky and earthy farmhouse yeast along with very subtle citrus fruit and bready yeast character. The mouthfeel is off and there is a surprising lack of complexity.  Disappointing.

Thanks to oregonskibum for sending this as an extra.

Pours dark tree sap amber color with a thin head that stays for quite a while. The head is very creamy looking, like a latte maybe.

Smells of brett, tartness, some faint citrus.

Some brett funk, a little sourness. Very tangy, a little citrus and white wine. Maybe a little spicy saison yeast but not much.

This wasn't satisfying as either a saison or a sour. It wasn't bad or hard to drink, but it didn't do much for me.

5.7/10

Purchased at my new spot - Tustin Liquor in Santa Ana, CA.

I'll tell you one thing, it's cleaner than a pair of my old woman's panties fresh out of the Kenmore Elite. Flavor? Yeah, a little. Not heavily pronounced, but it's there. Mouthfeel, aroma... Raul ain't impressed like Miranda Kerr in a pushup - just above average.

Peace!
