Appearance - Pours slightly cloudy lemon color with really nice foamy white head that lasts a good bit.

Aroma - Pretty funky barnyard aroma, wet hay, grass, and brett.

Taste - Taste is really pretty mild, light funk, hay, grain, light brett.

Feel - Light bodied, well carbonated and a light dry finish.

Overall - A really well done easy drinking Saison. Great flavors and very easy drinking.

Funky with saison and oak notes. Wine and fruit notes. Light lemon citrus. Dry.
