3.81/5 rDev -7.3%
Bottle pour at the bottle share held at Chloe's inside Golden Road Brewing in Los Angeles, CA.
Pours a clear gold with a foamy beige head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, fruit, earth, and Brett aromas. Taste is much the same with fruit and Brett flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of earthy bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp and prickly mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a very nice Brett presence in the aroma and flavor.

750mL bottle into a Hennepin glass. Pours a slightly hazy golden orange w/ a fluffy white head that leaves behind some great patchy lace and a nice layer of sea foam sustained by lively carbonation.
Aroma is nicely vinous and funky. Clean pale malt fermented by wild yeast gives it a fruity, citrusy quality. Inviting.
Taste is tart, sharp and clean. Bright and mildly acidic without going over the top. Vinous, grassy, citrusy. Good balance.
Mouthfeel is crisp and light, very refreshing. Medium-bodied, semi-dry finish.
Overall a very good, solid Brett fermented saison that hits all the right notes

(Served in a tulip glass)
A- This beer pours a yellowish-orange body with a very slight hazy to it. Each additional pour grows hazier. There is a gentle carbonation supporting a cobweb thick bubble mass of snow white head. A lovely Belgian lace forms after each sip.
S- The full saison yeasty character has fresh dandelion flowers and floral hops blending with a wet stones and fresh rain aroma in the finish.
T- The classic fruity sasion yeasty esters have some bright herbal pungent hops to follow with a nice cheese rind brett character grown in the dry finish. There is a nice pungent dandelion flowers and fresh cut alfalfa taste that lingers into a great brett grapefruit pith aftertaste.
M- The medium-light mouthfeel has a nice spicy fizz in the finish that really enhances the flavors in the finish.
O- This beer has a full pungent hops blended with great saison yeast character and nice aged brett flavors. This reminds me of summer in a glass. It is a beer you could just sniff and sniff and the flavor is even more delicious.
