750ml bottle into a tall tulip
A: Pours a very clear golden color with three fingers if fluffy white head. Retention and lacing are both top notch.
S: Quite fruity and funky. I get strong grapefruit and lemon zest along with lots of funky Brettanomyces. A bit of wheat rounds out the aromas. Once a bit of yeast is poured into the beer, it helps balance the slightly dry smelling beer.
T: The funk really comes out here - musty, barnyard, with a tangy flavor reminiscent of club soda. A nice fruitiness comes through as well - grapefruit and lemon zest. Once some yeast is in the beer, it adds a bit of a chalky flavor that works nicely with the beer.
M: Cery light with very high carbonation.
O: A very nice Saison - dry, funky, and fruity. I could use a bit more character, but this is a great Saison.
