4.34/5  rDev -3.6%

On-tap at the brewery.

A: Served a cloudy powdery lemon color with a faint white collar for a head.
S: Sharp notes of lactic acid and golden fruits, peach, apricot, stone fruits, and a touch of drying Brett. Earthy and fruity all-around.
T: Powdery yeast, a kiss of dried tropical fruits, stone fruits, minerals, peach, wheat, a hint of lemon, dried grains, spicy black pepper, and earthy Brett. There's a touch of sharp lactic acid in the finish.
M: Medium body, sharp acid but not overpowering, buttery carbonation, smooth, and drying but not a desert. Crisp.
O: Really good and complex flavor, smooth and delicious, crisp and refreshing. I would definitely drink this again.

4.29/5  rDev -4.7%

A - Hazy light golden yellow with light brown aspects and a big rocky head to it

S - Lemon, light vinegar, lots of barnyard funk, blue cheese, and light peach flavor

T - Light tartness up front. Apricot and peach adds a sweet flavor. This is a funkier saison as the barnyard funk and blue cheese adds some musty funkiness. Finish is light oak and apricot

M - Lots of carbonation but it manages to be really smooth and coats the tongue. Finish is dry with a light oak presence.

O - Good funky saison that is more blue cheese and barnyard funk with a mild tartness. The beer is balanced and has a slight sweetness from a fruit flavor

4.33/5  rDev -3.8%

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Very hazy yellow orange. Nice white head. Good retention. Nice surface wisps.

Smell - Stone fruits and yeasty esters. Grainy. A bit acidic. Nice, but not very strong.

Taste - Stone fruits all over. Grain. A touch of creaminess. A little bit of tang and the smallest amount of sugary malt.

Mouthfeel - Medium carbonation. Medium body, a little slick. Slightly sour.

Overall - This is incredible. Delicious fruit and sour flavors.
