Review dated 5/4/2009. Tap at City Beer Store in SF.
Attractive hazy golden-amber appearance with a foamy off-white head.
Funk, malt, and fruits on the aroma.
Flavor was pale malt, oak, funk, light fruits, green apple, and a Bretty sourness that is much less biting than more hardcore sours like some of the Russian River stuff.
I like that - too sour is just not enjoyable sometimes. (2011 note: I now disagree with this perspective, but that was my viewpoint back in the day). Smooth palate.

4.1/5 rDev -2.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: 1/4 inch head, low carbonation, gold in color, hazy
Smell: oak and dark fruit
Taste: oak, dark fruit, toasted malt, and hay
Mouthfeel: sweet and funky, light in body, medium carbonation
Overall: An excellent saison that tastes like it is mixed with a healthy helping of fruit juices. I think this beer is right up there with the best that Allagash makes. I would certainly get this on tap if again.

Poured from a corked & caged 750 mL bottle into a Brewer's Art goblet. Dated October 2013. Cork hit the ceiling, but no gushing.
A: Amber/rose-colored body with good clarity. Scant white head that rapidly disappears. Light lacing.
S: Light brett with vinous quality. Grapes and more subdued stone fruit. Mild earth.
T: Tart initially with a dry, even-handed Brett character shortly thereafter. There is the presence of red wine and associated tannins. Mostly dry finish. Lightly hopped. Alcohol presence is average for the ABV. Tartness lingers in the aftertaste.
M: Light-to-moderate carbonation with a fairly light body. Open on the palate.
O: Solid brew, if a bit less impressive than expected. Probably should have sat on this one a bit longer. I was hoping for a bit more complexity, but fans of wine barrel aging and brettanomyces will enjoy this.
