3.05/5 rDev -24.5%
Draft at Monk's Cafe in Philadelphia, PA.
Pours a hazy, dark golden orange color with bright peach edges and a two finger, frothy white head that quickly settles into a thick, lasting ring. Spotty lacing left behind.
Funky aroma with a subtle sulfur character. Musty brett/wild bugs are really strong in the nose, overpowering the other notes a bit. Underneath, there's some sulfur with farmhouse funk, bready yeast and light fruit.
On the fuller end of medium body with a really strong brett presence that dominates the other flavors. Dry and musty but the wild yeast overshadows the farmhouse/saison character too much for my preference. Subtle funky farmhouse yeast along with bread, zesty spice, light fruit and grain. The flavors fall off half way through and this beer is really light in the finish. Overall, it's pretty one dimensional and could use better integration of flavors. Too brett heavy and a bit boring.
