2016 vintage, tasted 17 December 2016.

Pours cloudy straw yellow. One finger of dense fluffy white head, great retention and lacing.

Smell is packed with yeast, light and aromatic. A bit floral, a bit tart. What's there is nice, I just want more of it.

Taste starts rather grainy, then flows to pungent yeast and some faint acidic tart. Finishes clean and crisp.

Feel is excellent. Light body, tons of bubbles as soon as it hits my lips, fading slowly to a smooth lightly buzzy finish. Delightful.

A tasty saison. On the light, crisp side, sorta tending towards a grainy sour.

750 ml bottle from Jeremy. Very active bottle, but decent pour after it settled down. Mildly tart, but nice savory saison body. Solid throughout with nice tangy finish.

Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a tulip glass. Thank you Farnold for this generous extra!

Pours a hazy orange body with a decent sized frothy white head that reduces slowly to leave a lacing and heavy retention.

Aromas are funk, barnyard, citrus, saison yeast, oak, definitely smells inviting! On the tongue is a light tartness, citrus, oak, light spices, green apple, barnyard. Very nice. Easy drinking crisp body.

Delicious beer, very enjoyable.

Bottle: Poured a light bright blonde color ale with a huge pure white foamy head with excellent retention and some lacing. Aroma of tart notes with some white wine and light botanical notes is intriguing and somewhat unique. Taste is also a mix of gin and white wine with sharp tart notes and some floral undertones with an herbal-like finish. Body is slightly hazy with great carbonation. Tartness is maybe more harp then I would like but very enjoyable mix of flavours with tons of complexity.
