Draft at Monk's Cafe in Philadelphia, PA.

Pours a very cloudy and dark orange color with tangerine edges and a 1.5 finger white head that slowly settles into a thin ring.  Spotty lace left behind.

Interesting aroma with musty brett and farmhouse funk countered by fleshy tropical fruit and citrus/floral hops.  Lots of peach and sweaty funk with some resinous, earthy hop character underneath.  Nice nose with saison character and funky bugs countered by grassy pine needles and sweeter hop notes.

Medium bodied with a really nice balance of dry brett, funky yeast, citrus/tropical fruit and resinous hop bitterness.  Brett is there but doesn't overpower the other notes.  Not as strong as in the aroma and nicely integrated into the farmhouse/saison yeast flavors.  This is followed by fleshy peach and other sweet fruit notes.   Some mango, grapefruit and orange peel with dry bitterness rounding things out in the finish.  Dryer and more bitter than expected but this is a complex and flavorful beer that's very easy to drink.
