Pretty gold pour from a 750 mL bomber into my trusty jester king goblet. Soft white head with good retention. Grass, lemon and green apple in the nose. Very dry. Tart. Lots of funk and horse blanket. Tastes terrific. Alcohol well hidden. I would drink this with Stilton and olive tapenade.

A - Pours an orange body with golden hues and an eggshell one finger head.

S - Brett is noticeable... White grape, yeast spices, white pepper and green apple. The tartness really balances out and brings forward the sweeter fruit qualities.

T - Milder than the nose. Brett tartness, funky, fruits of white grape and green apple. Turns a little peppery with clove and nutmeg towards the end.

M - Lighter bodied, higher carbonation. Has a dryer finish and it's so crisp to drink.

O - Lovely tartness on the nose with a milder tartness in the taste. Such an easy drinking beer and pleasing to the palette.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.75

Glass: Port City Belgian style Snifter.

Appearance: Hazy golden-yellow, with a hugeee white 3 finger head produced from a gentle pour. Minor lacing sticks around.

Smell: Very slight sourness, which is actually quite pleasant. General fruitiness, pineapple, and funky yeast is also to be found. Wow!

Taste: Very slight sourness, with saison funky wit taste, and quite a bit of fruit.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with medium carbonation.

Overall: This is the first "sour" type beer I've truly loved. I keep thinking about it long after I've drank it, and would love to have more of this beer in the future.
