Hazy orange gold, with an ample head that quickly dissipates to a ring of foam, leaving some curtains of lacing.

Smells of fruit--orange and tropical, some marshmallow, butterscotch sweetness though well in the background, wood, Orval-like spicy brett aromas.

Upfront, tastes mainly of orange, maybe some pineapple, and biscuity malt. The fruit tastes continue into the mid-palate, with some ginger and slight bandaid, then a dry, earthiness takes over, leading to a long, slightly bitter finish that ends up a bit tongue-numbing, but not annoyingly so.

Medium body, though on the light side for a saison, and quite dry, with crisp carbonation.

This is a delightful beer, complex, deliciously fruity and tart yet balanced by a desirable amount of sweetness, and very brett funky. It is interesting that with cabernet barrel aging, the beer ends up with so much of an orange flavor. I think that must be coming from hops, my guess would be Citra.

Pours a murky orange with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is sour with malt, grain, fruit, funk, Brett, red wine, and wood aromas. Taste is much the same with sour grain, fruit, red wine, funk, and acidic flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with nice sour and funk forward aromas and flavors from the use of Brett and the red wine barrel aging.

Serving type: bottle.
