4.19/5  rDev -1.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

750ml bottle into a tulip

A: Pours a hazy, bright orange color with two fingers of head on a moderate pour. Decent retention and lacing.

S: Moderate lactic sourness with an earthy funk. The sourness pairs with the Saison funk pretty well. Quite fruity in nature - I get mangos and red wine. Quite complex and nicely balanced.

T: Quite acidic - the beer starts off with a nice lactic acidity with a moderate amount of funk. The two play off each other, the sourness being fairly clean and balanced by a nice Saison funk. Very fruity and juicy - spices take a bit of a back seat but I do get some peppercorn.

M: moderate thickness with perfect carbonation for the style.

O: A very interesting and flavorful Saison. Fruity, juicy, sour, funky - pretty much exactly what you'd expect and want from a BFM Saison.
