4.45/5  rDev +1.1%

From a 750 ml bottle (First Blend, May 30, 2014) to a tulip.

A-A normal pour produces two fingers of white, clingy head. The lacing is pretty solid on the glass. Head retention is so-so, but a thin cap hangs around for a while. The beer is light and straw-colored with golden hues. It is murky, but I can see some carbonation in there.

S-The aroma is a pleasant mixture of musty, lactic funk with fruity, Brett-like aromas including lemon, lime, and bread dough. I also smell some straw, dried grass, and a bit of pepper. There is a surprising bit of tartness going on. This is a great example of what I expect a saison to smell like.

T-The taste is lightly tart with a similar lemon-lime flavor that tugs gently at my glands on the finish. It isn't sour, but there is some acidity here. The body of the beer has some bread dough flavors and a bit of saccharin-like sweetness. I also taste some dried grass, pepper, and straw. This beer tasted "young" to me and I suspect that the saccharin flavor would dissipate with age.

M-The feel is light to medium in body with a pretty smooth, above-average level of carbonation.

O-I really liked Troy Casey's beers from AC Golden, but this one is a step above those and better for everyday drinking. The lightly tart aroma and flavors pair beautifully with the grassy/doughy flavors to make for a drinkable, but hugely interesting saison. The beer looks and feels just like I think a saison should look and feel. As noted above, I think this beer will improve with age...I just wish I had more bottles. A great summer beer that would pair well with food, cheese, or drink well all alone.

A solid saison from the tart/sour inspired category. If you're looking for a spicy Belgian style, this ain't it. Think lighter and tart.
Light color, pretty good head that settles out. Little lacing

Apple/pear skin aroma, some sweetness. Very few spice going on. Same with the flavor. A hint of citrus and lemongrass. Very small notes of apricot and persimmon. As it drinks, it tries to dry out, but it remains a bit filmy and slick. More bubbles could mitigate this, or higher attenuation. I think. ..

Would give blend one a 4.4 and blend two a 4.7.

A: Hazy and glowing bright golden with a two finger pearl white head after a vigorous pour. Recedes to a small ring around the rim of the glass. Highly effervescent. Great looking saison.

S: Zesty lemon, clove, and spritzy lactic notes. As it warms brett makes itself more known with tropical fruit and musty funk.

T: Tart but not sour lactic acidity, followed by lime and lemon pith. A hint of sweet tangerine and some doughy malt. Hints of brett funk and slight notes of oak close everything out.

M: Light/medium and effervescent. Long dry astringent finish.

O: Rustic, balanced, beautiful. Can't wait to see what the Brett will do in my other bottle after a few months.
