Pours a cloudy orange colour with stupidly generous head. Sinking marshmallow style with intricate ace weavings. A thing of beauty, really.

Smells funky and tasty. Slight vanilla cream on the front and then a sour, lemony/barnyard funk on the back. Touch of redcurrant and strawberry. Lovely.

Tastes quite odd, actually. Far sweeter, with creme custardy malt upfront. Funk is earthier, with wet lucerne, mould and damp characters, slight moonshine flavour on the back and only a hint of tartness. Bit astringent, but overall still very pleasant and enjoyable.

A bit of sizzle and slightly dry on the back. Not bad, though.

Good organic brew with a lot of natural flaws and inconsistencies, which aren't a problem; they just keep you intrigued.

great brett bouquet and taste. balanced, perfect on a summer day. large head. tasted at stone brewery on a warm day. slam dunk farmhouse ale from a boutique oregon producer. noted, much more enjoyable during the day in the sunshine. tried once at nite after a few other beers, lost it's steam in a bar setting.

A - Mostly clear light caramel, except for the bottom of the bottle - gets murky. HUGE head, thick, whipped, like whipped cream. Slow to leave, with tons of cling lace.

S - Sharp apples, juicy fruit, tangy and tart in the nose. Malt secondary.

T - Nice. Barn yard, with tart apples, tropical fruits and a nice malty backbone.

M - Medium body, great carbonation, nice balance.

D - Alcohol well hidden. I would drink this for quite some time.

750ml bottle poured into a tall wine glass.

The beer pours a lovely copper color, hues of straw, orange peel, very hazy complexion with a lovely 3 finger white soapy head that has great retention and leaves behind a wonderful network of lacing. The aroma is superb, lots of yeasty funk, citrus, light banana with some playful berries, light alcohol and pale cereal grain. The flavors are really nice, lots of zesty yeast, bretty funk with nice floral elements that bring out some citrus and berry fruit with an earthy grain laden finish with a bit of alcohol that lingers behind. The body is nice and lively, rich and full, coats the mouth very nicely with a lightly creamy, albeit prickly, finish.

Verdict: A stunning Saison from Lodgson and one of the more impressive American made beers for the style. The balance is wonderful, artfully complex, while remaning very quaffable. A joy to drink.
