Bottle pour from the brett takeover @ perennial
The beer pours a cloudy, dull golden color, no sediment, with a white head that fades to nothing rather quickly. The nose is a rustic graininess, tart vinous white grapes, lemony citrus, and some straw. The taste has a mild grain sweetness upfront that quickly becomes tart and fruity as it sucks all saliva from your palate. It has a mouthfeel that is also grainy and quite tart, quenching and dry, and has interesting fruit qualities that pull all beer's funkiness together. It's definitely not an end of spectrum sour, in fact it's quite drinkable in. I'm definitely excited for the next release.

A huge cloud of bright white foam capped a golden pear colored body that had a bit of cloudiness and intense brightness.
The nose is wine like and cidery with some woodsy oak. Wheat and pear aromas meld well together.
This is slightly sour and semi sweet with a perfect balance between both. Cider, lemon, pear and wheat act in harmony to deliver the most balanced Saison I've ever experienced.
The feel is intensely smooth and refreshing, with a bit of sour or bitterness.
I like a Saison but have not enjoyed one more than this. It's strong flavors are so well weaved that it sets itself far above others in the style.

A - hazy, sunset orange color. Moderate head.
S - soft lacto, funk, citrus, white wine (think more acidic like Soave, gruner, Sauvignon blanc, etc) slight herbal aroma. Very inviting.
T - amazing light citrus acidity balanced with a very slight funk. Seems like the Brett and lacto are pretty evenly balanced with neither overpowering. Very delicate flavor but insanely drinkable. Lots of white wine characteristics.
M - well attenuated but not overly so like some saisons. Nice lingering sweetness.
O - easily one of the better saisons I've had. Very clean acidity. Very good.
