Big thanks to a Texas friend for this beauty. Batch 2, 8/15

Pours nearly turbid gold with a finger of white foam that ends up to be a lasting skim and thick ring.

Aroma is lemon limey and earthy funk, lighter barnyard. Rounded tart and melon notes make this a tasty and tempting med. strength bouquet.

Much more melon in the taste, woaahhh front and center melon attack. All the funk notes of the aroma are here, as well as some slightly bitter components that balance this into a delicious treat. The tart is outshone by the other flavors but it does end tart and fruity.

Med. viscosity, spritzy carb., decent finish make a fine mouthfeel that gives lots of flavor and still has a degree of refreshing character.

Not what I was expecting, but a very delicious beer that is unique in its flavor profile, and not over the top in any way. High recommendation.

Hazy gold. Thin head. Solid saison nose: grainy, yeasty with apricot notes. I don't get much melon. Flavor follows suit with bit more melon character, but not much. Dry and light tartness. Solid touch of bitterness. Light body with mild carb. Pretty good, but the weakest of the Dichotomous lineup that I've tried. Solid saison, but I expected to get more melon.
