Bottle. Pours cloudy and pale yellow. The head is large and strong. It retains with stubbornness. Light scars of lacing. The aroma is very exciting. It smells funky and has a pronounced lemon character. Sourdough and grains and light Belgian yeast phenols. The flavor is interesting. The Belgian yeast character is noticeable but not overpowering, thankfully. The funk found in the nose is set to a similar intensity. Just a slight hint of sourness. Lemons and homemade cider. Hay and soft spice. All parts are balanced. Body is fairly light. Carbonation nearing soft. I enjoy this brewery's look, their style preferences and their product quality. Another nice Off Color beer.

Pours into my Hennepin stemmed glass a slight hazed lemon yellow with just a tinge of orange,a great looking one finger bone white head that settled slowly into a frothy mass.Alot of lemon and orange oils in the nose wich gives off some tartness,mild funk in the background.Dry with a little toasted grain upfront on the palate with a little tartness from lemon-like notes,not much funk or phenols to be found wich I like.Very drinkable and dry with refreshing tartness,awesome summer beer here,my first Off Color beer is a hit.

Nose: fruit, a little light sour funk, spice, saison nose.
Pours hazy gold, 2” very finely bubbled foam cap, descends to a thick ½” moussey foam cap that persists.
Starts creamy, fruit, funk, saison, hop finish, very fine carbonation, very light for the amount of flavor packed into the glass, lemony, very airy and moussey, herbal, spice – sage?
The texture is outrageously good. Medium to medium light body, effervescent, very nicely done.
