Bottle poured into Teku glass. No date on bottle

A- Very light yellow, big white fluffy head that dies down
S- Smells like of mix of white wine and a farm house ale. White grapes. Bready-yeast
T- Not sure what is off here. There is a very medicine after taste. Like the bad cough syrups that your mom kept too long. The front end has so much potential.
M- Thin to medium, but fine for a saison.

O- I've had my share of saisons and I think there must be something wrong here... I can't even call the after taste "funk". I may try to find a fresher bottle and try this again, but for the mean time, I have to give it a 2.25

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 1.75 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

Appearance: pours a dull straw yellow color. one finger plus of a bubbly white head that fades quickly and leaves nothing behind. Perfectly clear

Smell: tropical fruit juice, white grapes and wine yeast. some tart tropical fruits.

Taste: opens with lots of white grape and vinous character. lots of earthy, leathery brett notes. ends full of grass and slight fruit.

Mouthfeel: super dry but with a strong carbonation. leaves earthiness behind

Overall: smells pretty good but tastes nothing like it in a very bad way. I found this beer very hard to drink due to the harsh earthy acidic flavor and bad dry aftertaste.
