Tapered 375ml green bottle, caged and cork. Cork comes out with a satisfying "thunk", leaving a little wisp of released carbon dioxide.

Cloudy pale straw body, with a deliciously foaming head of rocky white bubbles. Small amounts of tiny bead swelling up the sides of the glass. Looks very tasty.

Wonderful organic skunkiness on the nose - earthy mulch, straw, and a floral note of fresh crushed lemon myrtle. Underlying this is the classic Belgian yeast character, giving a sweet sweaty, tomato kind of smell. Just a wonderful nose, and so different to many other styles of beer. Very pleasant indeed.

Nice entry, slightly sour, with a gritty yeast backbone. Mellows later to a bittersweet floral note, with even a hint of pepper or spice. Finishes very dry, and what with the sour character lingering around the back of your mouth leaves it amazingly refreshing. Mouthfeel is great, a wonderful sparkling effervescence which just plays perfectly with the sour characters on the palate.

What a wonderful drop of beer, surely one of the most drinkable and refreshing brews I've ever tasted. A truly delectable and extremely tasty beer. Wonderful.

From my beer journal. Reviewed on September 3, 2011.

A: Pale straw golden color, very cloudy with a bit of light peaking through. Big fluffy, almost white head. Lots of bubbles. The head lasted really nicely.

S: Initially I had a bit of sunk, but it seems to have faded. A whole mess of funk after that with some sort of fruitiness. Lemon zest and herbs round it out. Very interesting.

T: Huge flavors. Hit me in the face really. Pale malts and nice herbal flavors. I enjoyed the citrusy lemon flavors that were in play. Great finish, just lightly bitter. The grassiness reminds me of the sweetgrass APA (but that's it obviously).

M: Light body with nice spiky carbonation.

O: This was a great tasting beer (and my first saison!). The funk was a little odd at first but once I got used to it (about halfway through) I realized I really liked it! Good stuff!
