750ml bottle. Served in a stemmed glass.

Pours a lighter orange body, slight golden hue, with a two finger white head, solid retention, not much lacing. Thin film. Smells of tart citrus, lemon, mild-moderately aggressive acetic tartness, oak, stone fruit, mild cracker, no graininess or lactic acid. Flavour is very similar to the smell; the lemon and stone fruit is more pronounced, and there is a moderately aggressive acetic quality that makes it on the tarter side of the BA saison spectrum, which I welcome. The stone fruit is more mellow than if it were a true peach aged saison, but it's still quite noticeable. Oak, mild funk, a bit of horse blanket, but not overtly cheesy. Very pleasantly tart and fruity flavour profile. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, nice carbonation, crisp, refreshing and mildly drying. Finish is a bit of stonefruit and funk. Great taste and depth in a 5.75% ABV package. Overall, a very nice saison that seems underrated to me, but has just enough of the tartness and stone fruit that works quite well for me.

This years release, not retired, and probably a duplicate.

Pours a bright saturated orange, a finger of white foam on top. Spotty lace around the edges of the glass.

Musty oaky aroma with a juicy citrus quality, peach pit, fuzzy sweetness.

Bright peachy acidity in the taste, grapefruit, yogurty lacto, wet wood, oaky tannic bitterness briefly in the dry aftertaste. Crisp acidity, refreshingly tart verging on sour. Somewhere in the realm of Fantome and Fantasia, somewhat lambic-esque. Overall it's tasty and nicely complex and cohesive.

Pour is deep golden amber with a tight white head. Nose has a great oak presence, huge bright peach, and notes of dusty brett. Taste is even brighter, fruits are huge, tropical fruits with a good bit of peach, brett is quite clean and citrusy with notes of leather and dust. Carbonation is strong, body is very delicate and soft. Flavors are extremely juicy and bright.
