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.  

Serving type: on-tap

Appearance: Arrives amber with a modest head; some drizzly lace remains

Smell: Biscuity, citrusy and spicy with a bit of leathery Brett

Taste: A nice flavor progression, starting with the biscuit, adding some citrus, then spicy and finally, the Brett; citrusy on the finish, as well

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate to high carbonation

Overall: A really nice beer that pushes a lot of buttons

Fresh from the tap at the 2 year anniversary party
A: cloudy golden with cream white head that lingered nicely with white lacing
S: fruity, citrus, funk and slight earthy grass/pine
Taste similar with tart fruit upfront and a nice funk toward the middle
Overall an easy drinker, medium body, dry finish / would easily get whenever its available on tap

Had on tap at Nosh Bow.

Decent creamy head, clear honey orange color.

Nose light funk, bit of Brett funk, light malty toasted grainy, bit fruity hop, grassy, very fresh beer aroma

Nice malt, toasted slight grainy malt, fresh malt flavor, very very light Brett funk, light bready. Nice hop character, little grassy some earthy hint pine and even touch fruity bit of hay and grass like. Finish is drier, fairly bitter with more grassy hop and little bready.

Mouth is med bod decent carb.

Overall ok but nothing too special, decent hops and malts, very little funk.
