Dry, funk, fruit, tart. It hits on every note. It's a hair more tart than your typical wild saison, but the finish is super dry and he carb is perfect. This beer is phenomenal. Each taste adds a different stonefruit or funk note. It is certainly unfiltered which leads to different tastes throughout the bottle.

Poured into a wine glass from a750ml bottle.

Pours a very nice pale straw golden color. There is a dense white head that rises up to about 1.5 inches. Nice and dense a bubbly head.

Aroma is of grain, bready notes and some nice light tartness. Mild yeast sweetness and phenols with some slight fruity notes.

Taste is grainy with some nice fruit sweetness and good notes of lemon tartness. Mouthfeel is fluffy and dry. Delicious funky, horse blanket and husk notes play very well with the tartness. So nice.

Sample at the beer cellar, thanks Dave. Tart and quite sour for a saison, even more so than the HF line. Lemon and citrus, earthy, and straw. Some brett funk and spiciness. Pretty good blend of sour and barnyard. very carbonated, the bottle was a gusher. Dry crisp finish.
