4.45/5  rDev +1.8%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

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.

Super nice saison. Just the right amount of funk without being too wild. I would put this above Bernice. Well done Troy!

Shared with JLindros and Threelions, Blend Two.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice slightly hazy support light golden hue with a thin quarter inch head that fades to leave light wisps. 4

S - Aromas of nice vinous notes, light chardonnay, good apples, lightly yeasty. Pleasant, inoffensive, inviting. 4.25

T - Taste is nice and tart, lightly funky, dry chardonnay barrel notes, good funky barnyard. Good wine notes, faint almost lacto creaminess. Delicious and pleasantly surprising. Light stone fruit pit. 4.5

M - Mouthfeel is lightly creamy, tart, pleasant, drinkable. 4.25

O - Overall this beer was really good, pleasant surprise with nice nose and taste. Does leave me wanting more though. 4.25

Another thanks to rudzud. Second blend 6/25/14.

Light fizzy head, fades semi quickly, decent lacing, hazy murky straw lemony yellow color.

Nose big lemon and farmhouse, nice farmhouse funk with straw and toasty malt, little yeasty, plenty of apples and vinous notes, chardonnay like wine grapes, mild acid, faint floral, bright saison and floral notes. Very little barrel if any.

Taste nice fruity, good fresh saison and mild funk, etc. Quite complex and blended smoothly, with mild creamy wheat, little farmhouse funk, mild grainy toasty wheat, etc. Mild lemony tartness, rind like, lemongrass, little sour flemmy funk and very dry. Mild dry apricot like stone fruit, nice farmhouse. Finish still quite, little flemmy feel and tart lemony and farmhouse funk lingering, grassy etc.

Mouth is med to lighter bod, quite dry, little flemmy feel, little creamy, decent carb.

Overall quite nice, enjoyable and very drinkable with how dry it is. Nice saison farmhouse funk, lemony, tart, refreshing and pretty tasty.
