Thanks to rudzud for sharing.

Big fluffy creamy slight fizzy 2.5. finger head, fades back slowly with small pockets and great soapy messy lacing, whisky Very clear golden pilsner color with great streaming bubbles to continue the pillowy head.

Nose is like a great saison, awesome grainy grassy straw malt, cracked wheat, nice farmhouse funk without Brett funk just great Belgian farmhouse saison, mild spices and very floral, almost flowery. Great fruity notes, little lemon rind and apple skin, nice ester profile, little tart lemony. Mild bready doughy yeast, great balance and effervescent profile.

Taste starts with lots more great saison flavours, fruity, very fruity, very tart lemony like front, then apple skin, pear, little sour peach like. Then floral notes, flowery grassy etc, with nice wheat and mild grainy malt, pretty light. Nice Belgian saison yeast funk, farmhouse funk with the Brett like funky funk, hint floral spices, etc. Lots of that apple skin and tart stone fruit, and then a big kick of banana too. So complex but all work well together. Finish is dry but a little sticky, more tart fruit and apple skin, little funk and lemon rind lingering.

Mouth is med bod, little soft, lots of effervescent carb.

Overall awesome, def one of the best non Brett saisons out there.

Received this in a trade a while back. This is first batch stuff! Shared with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a very glorious golden hue with a three finger white head that just billows up and didn't quit! Really nice sticky lacing, like a dollop of whipped cream on my beer...just awesome!

S - Aromas of glorious barnyard, Belgian yeasts, fruity esters, light yeast cheese notes, fruits, light spice, light lemon tart, super well rounded and balanced. Just spot on, could use a touch more funk but man oh man it this is great.

T - Taste is nice, really close to the nose, super fruity throughout with the lemon being up front which becomes more peach pit in the middle. Awesome barnyard funk, damp hay, Belgian yeast. The finish is super banana, out of no where! Yet again, wonderfully executed with a great dry finish.

M - Mouthfeel is super refreshing and clean, crisp, wonderfully carbonated.

O - Overall this beer was exceptional, a great example of the style. One of the best.

Batch 4

Pours a hazy bright yellow-gold tons of carbonation. Wonderful funky bready smell.
Wonderful tart flavor that blankets the tongue and makes you want to drink more and more. Was the highlight of today's tasting. Wish I lived in Capitola. Sante!
