A: Cloudy golden yellow with aggressive, puffy head.

S: Straw, grass, apricot, peach, slight pepper and other spicy, and complex yeast smells including, of course, brett! Quite wonderful and nice balance of different notes.

T: Much of the same - somewhat malty saison with brett character breaking through after a couple moments, leading into a mossy, earthy, barn-straw character with orange fruits and light pepper.

M: Not terribly crisp I suppose but very nice an suitable for what's going on. Ends fairly dry and oaked.

O: Super happy with this beer and I had high expectations. I think the other three bottles will get spaced out over the next 18 - 24 months to see how it develops.
