L: Bright gold with a thick, rocky white head that leaves behind incredible lacing.

S: Classic barnyard grassiness with herbal hops, bready malt, and spicy yeast.

T: Tart, bready and full of flavor. Pulling out mainly fresh cut grass, bread dough, and herbal spiciness.

F: Crisp, light bodied.

Overall: A superb session ale. One of the best.

L -- Slightly hazy straw body with an enormous, 4+ finger dense white head produced with even the gentlest of pours. Excellent retention and lacing, very actively effervescent
S -- The dry hopping makes itself known here. Lots of dried citrus peel, floral, touch of grassiness, fruity saison yeastiness (akin to Tank 7)
T -- I was surprised by this as I was expecting at least some tartness. Instead, the barnyard funky character of Brett is given the chance to shine. The almost-bitter funkiness works well with the grassy/earthy/light fruitiness of the hops. Bone dry
F -- Immensely refreshing and drinkable. Light mouthfeel, high carb
O -- I know this will be taken as sacrilegious, but this would be amazing packaged in 12oz bottles and sold in a refillable wooden case, like Allagash does at their brewery with their House Beer

Very solid beer, and the beauty of this is that it is a very low ABV, so you can drink an entire 750ml without issues. Taste is farmhouse style with good dankness and a bit of a bitter edge.

very grassy and earthy,e plenty of grainy character throughout, mineral water, floral, rose petal, some funkiness, musty white grape, lemon juice, slight oxidation. mellow peppery spice, as it warms there are fruitier flavors coming out - getting a hint of mellow kiwi and orange flesh.

From a 750ml bottle purchased in the brewery. Pours hazy golden with the thick white head. Nice retention and lacing. Smell and taste of yeast and fruits. A bit on the sour side at the end. Lively carbonated. Awesome saison.

Very hazy yellow appearence. Big head, that hangs around for a long time. Lots of lacing. Smell is slightly fruity, a little citrus, some brett funk.Starts sweet, but ends dry and slightly sour. Prickly mouthfeel, very smooth. An incredible ply refreshing, but yet complex beer. Absolutely amazing.
