4.43/5  rDev +9.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass.

A perfect tangerine solid orange body color, opaque and solid. Head is slightly off white with a yellow cream tinge. Rocky and fluffy with thick clumping of retention and valleys for the head. Chunks just hanging off the glass. Great looking brew.

Real nice nose. A good moderate brett funk action on this, lots of fruit orange and lemon citrus qualities. Some matching floral notes and slightly dry. Pretty solid classic saison. Not getting a distinct grapefruit, but some minimal pepper.

Palate hits with lots of fruit qualities. Grapefruit is more noticeable cause of a huge zesty and oily rind taste. Big oils, with some matching brett, with big oily coating on the finish. Some sweet malts slightly and good juiced up coating on the palate. Not particularly hot or peppery it seems, quite tolerable on that note and easy.

Overall just a great fruity saison, comes out almost like an amped up fruit saison hybrid.
