Bottle to HF glass

A: Hazy opaque golden color. 2 finger fluffy white head recedes to nothing very quickly.

S: Lactic funk, maybe some stone fruits. Not terribly aromatic to my nose.

T: Lactic lemony funk. Definitely some wine barrel in the finish.

M: Medium body, but lacking in carbonation IMO.

O: Not a bad beer by any stretch, but I prefer my funky saisons with a little more carb, and a dryness and tartness this doesn't have. Lacto pretty much dominates and is rather one dimensional.

75cl bottle of batch 1 Brett Venture. Thanks Josh. Poured into a Hill Farmstead stemmed glass today, 2/27/2014.

App- When Josh opened this up, it was a mild gusher. But well- pours appropriately like a saison- hazy yellow straw body, with a one finger white head with good retention. Not much lacing.

Smell- Reminds me a ton of Schell's Star of the North. So much lactate and very yogurty. Kind of covers up the base malts a bit. Not much sign of funk. I consider this to be fairly one-note, and it delivers on that count.

Flavour- Very yogurty, lactic with a bit of lemon tartness. I may even get a bit of wheat in this. A touch of white wine and oak. But dominated by a strong, acidic lactate, 7/10 which is very surprising for what's labeled as a saison- might be more appropriately labeled an AWA. Regardless, this is a quite acidic and tart saison.

Mouthfeel- medium bodied, just the right amount of carbonation, not difficult to drink by any means. Quite tart and acidic though. Nice and dry finish that makes you want to drink more.

Overall- Very interesting grey area between saison and American Wild Ale here. I like the lactic yogurt qualities this imparts, but I can see why some people may not like it. After all, this does have lactobacillus in the blend.. it's necessary to remind ourselves that there is no true "saison" style but rather it is a style with a wide range of qualities and characteristics.
