Reddish orange very clear pleasant looking beer. Minimal head with some lacing. Fruity - perhaps peach, grassy nose. Tastes like I imagine orange leaves np minus the astringency would taste. A bit of dry wood on the finish. All in all a very interesting and enjoyable beef.

Nice subtle brett character with a whole lot of hops. Not so much the tropical or piney hops, but a great balanced hop profile not dissimilar from a refined pils. Underrated beer IMHO

not a bad beer here by any stretch, im not sure the two collaborators could make a bad beer if they tried, but this one seems laze to me, and certainly came in well below expectations. its haay and orange tinted. the head is enormous and creamy white, catching some specks of yeast as i get over ambitious with my pour. almost too cloudy at this point. the nose is funky from the brett, mildly astringent from the hops, and thickly grainy. the flavor too is a bit thick on the grain, tannic and proteiny, its harsh a little bit in the feel there. i get the juiciness of the hops for sure, and the brett obviously, but it doesnt seem well designed, or completely though through at all to me. its more like hey, lets just chuck this weird culture in a random beer, which is ironic given its name, i get very little of the artisanship in this, at least it doesnt radiate for me, like whoa, what a work of art, its more like a haphazard sort of thing. the beer is thick and almost gritty in texture despite enormous carbonation of big bubbles. the wild aspect is great, but its really raw and unrefined. i liked the beer fine, but i expected to be floored and i wasnt at all.

Draft at Whole Foods in Alexandria, VA.

Orange copper body with a thick, white head. Earthy, funky, grassy, herbal scent and flavor. Hops and mild bitterness amid a wonderful funky character. Tasty.

On-tap at Mugs Ale House, Brooklyn, NY

A: The beer is hazy yellowish amber in color. It poured with a short off white head that died down and left a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of tropical fruits are present in the nose along with notes of Belgian yeast. There are also some hints of funk in the back end.
T: The taste seems to be more balanced and has bright flavors of tropical fruits along with notes of Belgian yeast and spices.
M: It feels just about medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This saison is very interesting as it combines flavors of tropical fruits from the hops along with spices and Belgian notes form the yeast.

Serving type: on-tap

Lost my review... sigh.
Thanks to Aaron for sharing!

Murky brownish pond water appearance with a thin film on the surface. Not the best looking beer.

Aroma was earthy and Brett yeast driven, smelled like topsoil and tulips. Where are the hops?

Taste was bitter and tangy with a certain level of yeast complexity. Felt sort of odd, like drinking potpourri. Overall this isn't something i'd seek out again , though I love Prairie and Perennial.
