4.61/5  rDev +7.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

A: 4.5 Hazy, orange/gold. Pours a fairly large off-white head that dissipates rather fast. Good lacing.

S: 4.75 Strong smell that’s really nice. Lots of green apple. Smells tart and a little funky. Also grapes and even a little oaky aroma present. Some Belgian yeast in the background giving the usual ester spice and fruitiness.

T: 4.5 Sweet malt up front followed quickly by Belgian yeast. Fruity ester and a bit of banana with the yeast. There’s also a lingering tartness in the background adding in the green apple from the nose. Ends with just a little bit of bitterness along with some bread and clove. Not as much funk as was on the nose.

M: 4.5 Great overall, especially for the style. It coats the palate without being too thick. A bit dry at the end that makes you want more. Drinking it while it’s fairly cold out, but I could definitely see this a perfect summer brew.

O: 4.75 I really love this saison. I usually like the style and don’t seek them out too often, but this one is really special. The flavors flow and develop beautifully on the palate and each sip is very interesting and you find something new.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Beautiful golden honey color. Small one finger white head.

S: I got a ton of lemon and orange citrus aromas, a very sweet funk smell, not overwhelming at all very pleasant.

T: Wow did I enjoy this. A nice lemon tartness up front almost immediately followed by that very pleasant brett funk flavor, its in your face but at the same time its not. On the back end you get a lot more of that citrus flavor with a nice malt backbone.

MF: Very crisp and sharp with a nice dry finish. Extremely smooth.

O: This is up there with some of the best saisons and being a true farmhouse ale I am thoroughly impressed by this beer. Citrus and funk with a smooth crisp finish. I will buy this again.

I purchased this at whole foods in Fremont, enjoyed chilled in a tulip.

The color is golden with light haze and thick three finger white head with visible carbonation and lots of lace. The smell is great -tons of tropical fruit light pineapple and subtle funk with mild herbal acommpaniement with slight grainy floral and citrus juicy aroma. The feel is excellent with lots of bretty texture and medium carbonation with slight herbal and spiced quality mild alcohol and nice dry finish.

The flavor is very good with great brett which is tropical and fruity bringing a juicy and earthy flavor with light spice and citrus tanginess almost grapefruity with mild zest and light hint of pepper in the very dry finish with a mild hop and alcohol taste. Overall I really enjoyed this, I was wishing I could have gotten more, the brett character is excellent and this is perhaps one of the best bretted saisons I have had recently. I recommend this highly.

After uncapping, foam started oozing from the bottle, but at a controllable rate; pours into a frizzy snow-white head that soon settles down. Brew is hazy and golden, nearly opaque. Head retention is fantastic. Fair amount of small particles cling to the glass. Very slight lines of lacing.

Citrus, funk, and surprisingly sweet on the aroma. Slightly sharp and tart, with hints of straw, wheat, banana, lemon, berries, and only a bit of funk.

Sharp, funky taste: Brett right up front, followed smoothly by sweet and clean citrus notes. Big body of wheat and pale malts. Delicate and well-balanced.

Slightly sharp on the tongue, very smooth in the mouth; long semi-dry finish. Begs for another sip.

This is a funky American Saison that is worth the hype. I think this is truly one of the best Saisons I have ever tasted. Complex and funky, but sublimely smooth and eminently drinkable.
