This is a cloudy straw-colored beer with a frothy, airy head that fades fairly quickly. The nose offers spicy phenolic notes on top of a lightly grainy maltiness. Flavor is pretty good: lots of phenols with spicy, clove-like notes, light fruitiness, a good bitterness that really dries out the beer a lot, and malt that is a small component, but never quite disappears in the background. Well-carbonated, as every good saison should be. Quite a decent beer, and one I predict I'll buy again.

On edit: the second can of the 4-pack was a GUSHER. I now have beer all over my shirt and pants. Is this can-conditioned? In any case they seem to have a few quality control problems still.

Enjoyed on the patio at the Flying Saucer in Fort Worth on a lazy hot summer Sunday afternoon while waiting between trains.

Glorious looking in the glass. Almost opague, yellow-orange-tan-grapefruit juicecolored liquid. A little bit of a white head.

Interesting spicy aroma.

Flavor is a mouthful but a little out of left field. I can pick up some different grains (maybe wheat?), funky hops, spices (especially black and white pepper strangely enough) and some really interesting funky yeast.

Yes, I used the word funky two times in this review.

It's an odd combination. It is frankly pretty far on the funky side of farmhouse ales but I like it.

Very full, almost chewy mouthfeel with a little bit of acidic prickle on the tongue.

Drink this beer if you dare.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a growler into a footed tulip.

A: Slightly hazy, hay-colored hue. Pours about a 1 finger, bubbly, white head. Settles quickly leaving a smattering of bubble maintained by continually rising effervescence. No real lacing.

S: Wheaty grains, white bread with a light but distinct nutty tone, and a bit of lemon.

T: Sourdough bread, pungent hop notes, with slight hint of lemon citrus, and indistinct fermented sweet fruit.

M: Light body, refreshing quality. Slightly bitter throughout, with a dry, biting, pungent finish. Does have kind of a washed out or thinned out feel to it.

D: Drink session style, but worth savoring.

Atmosphere is pretty good. Light hazy hue, decent head, plenty of carbonation, but no real lacing. Nose is wheaty and bready and really nutty accentuated with some hints of lemon citrus. Pungent sourdough bread, with some lemon and indistinct sourly fermented fruit. Overall, this is a good quaff.

Serving type: growler
