Poured from the 750 into a tulip. Visually a very attractive beer. Deep cherry red in color. Pillowy pink hued white head forms easily with a quarter inch of that lingering for a while. Lacing covers the glass as I drink.
Smell is strong with plenty of Brett funk. Fairly typical JP Brett smell but definitely on the floral side. Tart berries are there as well with an underlying smell of peppery spiciness.
Flavor is not as complex but very pleasant on the palate. The front of your tongue is treated to somewhat tart strawberries. A mildly bitter funkiness lingers on the sides for quite a while after every sip. The spiciness in the nose is also there but overshadowed easily by the overall fruitiness of the brew.
Body is light, with a dry finish. Exactly what I want in a saison. Carbonation is high without being fizzy.
