Batch 2009-1. Poured in a big wine glass at 56 F/ 13 C.
Bright golden with a bit of haze, huge off-white head, thick splattery rings of lace. The head subsides to a good half inch.
Nice big fruity and spicy aroma. Stone fruits, orange, lemon, exotic flowery peppery spice. Grains of paradise come to mind. No funk detected.
Tastes fruity and spicy. Tasty mix of peachy and citrusy fruit flavors, with some orange peel. Fairly dry but not completely dry, good medium bitterness, very well balanced. A touch of acidity, but not much. Long dry and somewhat bitter finish, mainly the orange peel and spice lingering.
The texture is a bit too fizzy, but not bad. Refreshing and very drinkable.
Tasty and well balanced, this is a good saison, but where's the brett? Maybe I should have bought the brettless version for $4 less, or aged this one.

Delicious farmhouse funk without too much sweetness. Bitter enough to stand up to most fooods, but light enough to enjoy at any part of the meal. Would love to get my hands on a few bottles and age them. Deceptive ABV... Enjoying this at Dogwood Cafe in Jamaica Plain, MA before a Sox game.

Poured into a teku. 2013 vintage.
Still a decent amount of funk after a year of aging. Superbly creamy and medium full body. Nice touches of spice and a hint of sourness. Lots of yeasty, floral smells. Some dryness but not overly so. Smooth. Wonderful head. Just a superbly done craft beer.
