4/5  rDev -1.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy golden color; though the head is very small, strands of lace line the glass from the lip to the liquid

Smell: Grainy and lemony with cheesy funk and vinous tones

Taste: Quite vinous and grainy with a lemony cast that moves in an oaky, funky direction, through the middle; on the verge of tart, after the swallow, with a dry finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Interesting but a bit too angular in a vinous, lemony manner; I suspect some of the fruity tones have faded with time as I think this bottle dates from Spring 2017

Thanks, M_chav, for the opportunty

Had on tap. A classically tasting saison with hints of sour citrus on the finish. Has big oak tannins, belgian yeast, lemon, dry white wine, and hay. Streamlined saison feel and smell, yet delicate in nature. Nothing too complex, but worth a try!

L - awesome neon orange, unless the light here in the brewery is playing ticks on me
S - good funky peaches (?) this smells of Chardonnay and yeast - definitely right on the cusp of a saison/sour
T - just awesome pungent fruit with a perfect balance of Brett. Very unique, leaves my palate with sweet sugary peach/apricot flavors
M - medium/light mouthfeel and beautifully crisp
O - possibly my new favorite beer for the small brewery of the year GABF. This is an amazing brew no doubt, I will be sad if they don't bittle this

The best brett beer coming out of NM and it is consistent. I've had it this year and last year and it is very similar beer. Worth seeking out when it's around. I've only seen it on draft, at the downtown location but I suspect they will have kegs at their other locations for draft pours as well.

The 2014 rendition of this beer debuted yesterday, March 5, at all Marble locations.

The beer arrived in a Belgian tulip and had a finger thick, frothy head. The head dissipated fairly quickly into a thin layer of lace, but lace remained at the original head level. The liquid is straw-colored, slightly hazy, but still clear and I see plenty of steady carbonation.

I remember this beer bordering on sour last year, so this year's batch does taste and smell a bit different. Tartness is more the word this year, as I get a heavy aroma of tart, citrusy fruit and grapefruit peel, ahead of some subtle hints of sweet malt.

Tartness continues on the tongue, with some citrus character that is lemony, followed by peppery yeast, and orange peel. The malt character isn't immediately detectable, but as the beer warms, some sweetness emerges.

Overall, the beer is light, effervescent and tart with some aggressive carbonation that hits about mid-palate. This beer is perfect for spring and summer and is really easy to drink, so I expect to have many of these in the upcoming months at home and on the Marble patio.
