The beer comes in a golden light straw color, almost like white wine.

The aroma hits of lemon juice, zest, some stone fruit, almost a white wine quality. Some wet hay and bleu cheese funk.

The flavor has a light tart up front, a bit of tangelo and lemon type flavor. This falls away quite quickly as the beer dries out with almost a copper rust flavor. This is surrounded by a light wheat and funk quality.

Crisp and clean, but a light mouthfeel. It also slightly lacks in depth and tartness.

Look: Light yellow in color; completely transparent with lots of tiny bubbles. Pours with a 1+ finger creamy white head that dies down leaving a minor trace on the surface on the beer and eventually disappears completely. Very commercial looking.

Smell: Quite funky with a slight sour aroma. Interesting and somewhat enticing.

Taste: Tastes like it smells; quite funky and a little bit sour - yet smooth and drinkable.

Feel: Thin and kind of watery. Nice light carbonation though.

Overall: This is an labeled "American Wild Saison". Personally "wild" ales are not my preference, as generally I find them "too funky" for my tastes. But not this one. I found it very drinkable, though I would not purchase it again as this is not a style that I prefer.

Sort of a round buttery brett presence to this one. Begging for a bit more acidity and dryness from the wheat. Bit of a mess but Trillium's amazing work w hops may have led me to too high of an expectation here.
