Poured into SARA tulip. Served cold but let warm through the course of a few hours.


Appearance is a surprisingly filtered like light straw/palest of yellows. Wispy white head that builds aggressively on initial pour but settles to small bubbly floaters and a decent ring around the edge of glass. 4.25


Aroma sports a strong mustiness from the brett. Very farmyard like and catty at times. A bright citrus punches out from the funk offering up kefir lime, mandarin, and lemony jack fruit. Some soft spices and white wine bring it all together in a distinct and appealing nose. 4.5


The taste comes in swinging with that citrus on the nose, leafy herbs, barnhouse musk, light cracker bite, and a soft but present minerality. Easy drinking, mid summer saison for sure. It's funky but very well balanced out by a mob of other flavors. 4.5


Mouthfeel is delightful. Fluffy light body only because because a nice rush of carbonation mid to late palate comes in to support, otherwise it would feel thin . Very dry and the acidity is toned down but present. The tartness only lasts a bit and disappears on the finish making this a tease as you reach for more to keep that feeling going. 4.5


A nice "lighter" saison by Sante Adairius. Love the funk that comes out of this which at times becomes a tiny bit cheesy much like you get in some Oude Gueuze. As it warms I'm getting that more. But overall very sessionable, wonderful mix of flavors, great mouthfeel, and a fine example of a saison.

Thanks to Jason for sharing.

Very thin and watery. Some nice brett notes, but was described by one of our tasting group as bretty miller lite.

Bottle shared by mendvicdog. Thanks Pat!

The beer is straw yellow and mildly hazy with a white head. Aromas include lemon, hay, grass, floral notes. Easy drinking and tangy with notes of citrus and Meyer lemons. Mild tartness. Light in body, but not thin. Tasty.
