500 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Slightly hazy orange. Medium white head and a very thin collar.

Smell - Oak. Light lemon and some wine/grape-like fruitiness.

Taste - Tart. Lots of orange. White wine, but not too strong. Oak. Some sweetness lingers along with the tart finish.

Mouthfeel - Low carbonation. Medium light body.

Overall - Quite nice. Finish is a little messy and I'd like a bit more carbonation, though.

Bottle shared by Justin at Curran's tasting. Thanks man, happy to try this brewery for the 1st time.

This one was a real gusher. Pours a nearly opaque golden orange, with a small bubbly, fizzy head.

Smells like lemon, orange, hay, champaqne, and brett.

Tastes similar. Lots of bretty complexities, with some hay, lemon, chalk, sweet tarts, grass, oak, white grapes, and orange. Lots of great flavors here, great way to start out a tasting.

Light bodied, crisp, light, smooth, dry and tart mouthfeel. Very drinkable.

A good one, I'm glad I was able to try this one.

This is the beer I was drinking when budweiser aired their "brewed the hard way" ad. I watched the ad looked down at this beer and chuckled.."they can keep their `golden suds` because this beer is phenomenal". A light easy drinkin sour saison. Only my second beer from these guys and I am impressed...

First had: bottle from the source. (Bottle 30/270)

Be careful with this one...it wasn't a gusher, but it fizzed up about an inch and half within the bottle when I opened it.

Poured into a #properglassware F&M Moeder Seizoen stem glass (finally a glass suitable for this brewery!). Opaque golden-orange pour, with a small cap of bubbly white head that receded to a wispy but lasting layer, and coated the glass with lacing. Fine, Champagne-like carbonation rising from the bottom. Lots of classic saison funk in the aroma, wet grass, hay, overripe fruits, white and red grapes. First sip brought in a wave of grassiness and herbal hop bitterness, but this soon mellowed out to a lighter, fruitier sensation, notes of white grape, pear, touch of strawberry--mildly tart--with a pretty big barrel profile coming in, spicy/fruity brett, finishing off sweet with a stiff (but not at all hot) kick of white and red wine. Medium body, lively, crisp mouthfeel, refreshing. Beautiful beer! Reminds me a little bit of HandFarm (though I might like this one a tiny bit better!).
