4.01/5 rDev +3.6%
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.

A: Pours a hazy straw color with a white head.
S: Cardamom, nutmeg, a touch of citrus in the nose.
T: Taste has more cardamom and nutmeg, some orange, some lemon.
M: Light bodied and fairly smooth.
O: Pretty good, almost like a cross between a light, fruity, spicy saison and a pumpkin ale.
