Wasn't big on this at first, had a weird smell and light flavor. The bottle definitely opened up nicely after letting it sit a while. Good effort on a berry that many have trouble with. Very interesting how it can morph into something so different from where it started while letting it sit there a bit.

Happy New Year's Eve everyone!

This beer pours a bright and brilliant golden orange in color. A small, 1cm head forms and reduces down to a thin lace on the top of the beer rather quickly. Lacing is surprisingly awesome due to the thickness of the remaining head. Tart saison with underlying strawberry tartness greets the nose first on this beer. They intermingle for most of the scent before the juicy and more fruity aspects of the strawberries kick in towards the end. The overall impression of the scent is of a fresh, tart strawberry.

The taste starts out with a mildly tart saison bang. The tartness there fades a little and some of the strawberry sourness comes through. From there, the barnyard funk kicks in and gives the flavor a drier, more malty flavor for just a snap. After the funk, the strawberries come right back, and just like in the scent, display a slightly less tart and more juicy flavor. They wash away as you swallow, leaving a touch of acidic tartness on the tongue. This beer feels like many saisons that are on the more tart side, with high carbonation, no alcohol detectable, and the only limiting factor on drinking being the level of sourness.

Overall, this is a world class tart saison. I wish there was a touch more strawberry fruit flavor to replace the tart strawberry flavors. In any event, I could drink this very regularly.

Served around cellar temp- Nice strawberry presence that balances with the farmhouse qualities and provides a nice fruitiness without being overpowering or artificial tasting. Lightly tart and very drinkable, probably the best strawberry beer I have had.
