Pours a vibrant red colour, with cloudy body. Head is way too generous, but looks pretty amazing; slight pink tinge, fluffy marshmallow-like sinking with great clumps of lace left behind. Would look ideal, if head were slightly less enthusiastic.

Smells really lovely. Funky and sour, with big vinegary acidity from the Brett that also gives a funky earthy bitterness underneath. Raspberry, redcurrant and some lemon zest on there. Not really traditional saison, but lovely, big, complex and inviting.

Taste is not quite as complex or bold at first. Lots of tart and even astringent acidity from start to finish, with decent caramel sweetness and a touch of clove. Mid-palate gets all Bretty and funky, with notes of caramelised balsamic vinegar, lemon zest and washed rind cheese (just slightly). Quite dry and almost vinous on the back, it's really well tamed in fact. Fresh, complex, interesting but still very drinkable.

Bit thin upfront, but lots of presence and texture from the wild yeasts that end up quite dry. Interesting.

Almost feels too subdued like the tartness from the wild yeast is not fully formed. I can picture this as a sweet bridging sour beer for those who can't handle them yet, but to me it's just a bit of a mild entity.
