beautiful looking beer. tons of funky fruity complexity and barrel character on palate. there is a funky pineapple flavor up front that is slightly spicy, acidic under ripe oranges, lime, and sour peach. beautiful earthy character that is just funky and earthy enough without being overbearing, wonderful minerality and hint of musty earth flavors. floral, vinous, hoppy, and grainy throughout ... this one is a pungent beer and is extremely complex but achieves this while also being delicate and refined. A wonderful beer that is delicious, crisp, and refreshing.

Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a stemmed tulip glass.

Pours a hazy bright gold color with 2 fingers of soft all white head. The head hangs around for a good amount before settling into a thin halo. Leaves a ton of lacing around the glass.

The aroma brings lots of lemon, lime, grapefruit and graham crackers with a ton of funk. There's a wave of grass before some dry grape must and an earthy hop backbone.

The flavor starts off with lots of white grape, grape juice, and lime. Then comes some sweet malt and funk with plenty of grass and earthy hops on the finish.

The feel is medium-light bodied with good carbonation. Very crisp and refreshing with some lingering tartness.

Overall, this is a great and relatively complex saison. It's wonderfully tart with a surprising amount of hops. The grape notes are nicely complimented by the lime and citrus acidity.
