look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.
