If you like cheese and feet and bile, this one's for you. It smells like old strong gruyere and unshowered yeast infection crotch. This is not hyperbole, it's an earnest attempt to parse the flavor notes. The taste is nowhere near as bad as the smell. The taste is bad cheese, yeast crotch, "dry", and a rumor of that saison profile you like. The two good elements still don't rescue the overall experience from the nasty zone though. My two buddies who were with me tried it too and were revolted. I love saisons and was so looking forward to this but it was just awful. I thought it had gone off and I asked the bartenders and they said nope, it's supposed to be like that. I can't imagine how this could be intentional, or why. Bad bad news. Drain pour after two sips. Among craft brews, this is officially the worst beer I've ever had, more so because it was intentional.

Wow, can a saison be a lawnmower beer? If so this is the one. I mean this in the most complimentary way. This beer was fabulous and easy to drink. I wish Bob the brewer would bottle this one.

This has a nice golden color with a gorgeous creamy white head. Hints of lemon and spice in this one. This is one of those beers that you drink on a warm day while working. Love it!

On-tap at the brewery for bottling day! I was told this was about 6.6% ABV. The board says a funky hoppy saison.

Poured into a tulip. Pours a very pale hazy yellow with an extreme frothy white heading. Great heading in which leaves great lacing throughout.

Smell is all light malt. Kind of doughy, slightly toasted and a subtle sour funkiness to it.

Taste is starts out a little hot on the breath almost a nail polish like tasting of alcohol. Quickly put away by a more complex hoppy bite which doesn't overshadow but just takes control. Finishes with a nice note of sour funkiness.

Light bodied, great carbonation and terrific light balance.

Wow this one was a shocker.I will never underestimate a saison again. Hoppy as hell and tasty as well. Good stuff.

A: Vibrant, hazy yellow body with a 3 inch thick white as could be head. Sticky lace coats glass as it fades after minutes. Lacing looks like a thick spider web. Very inviting!

S: Rustic/rural aroma. Smells like the old country, an abandoned dark, wet cave. Sour/sweet malts. Hints of citrus lemon and light zest.

T: Biscuity, rice, heavy grain flavor up front. Turns a to wonderfully wet fruity (sweet lemon) explosion before the typical saison bubbly carbonation takes over. Linger notes of fruity cereal.

M: Feel reminds me of a light "domestic" beer up front. Sour, rice or corn really turns me off. Creamy, bubbly feel tingles on the back end.

O: Extremely unique, nice change up front a typical saison. Tastes like it was brewed in a cabin with house-hold ingredients, pieced together equipment and tons of love/care. Not my first or last time having this one.

Single finger head with nice lacing on a straw clear body.

S: first thing that comes to mind is exotic cheeses. Definitely funky as advertised. The typical phenols and yeast come through in the background.

T: tastes better than it smells though the smell isn't not so much bad just unexpected for a beer. Penitent as peppery as his other brews with mostly cheese and white wine come to mind with a background of Belgian yeast and spice.

M: medium body and moderate to high carbonation.
