L: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a bright yellow color and a cloudy consistency. There was a half inch of foamy head that lasted an average amount of time. Pretty good lacing.

S: A good aroma of hops, a lot of barnyard funk, citrus, pine, and malt.

T: Tasted of a mild bit of malt (mostly in the finish), a good shot of citrus (lemon, mostly), a ton of the barnyard funk (quite pungent), some pine, and a surprisingly high hops content. This is an interesting flavor for a saison, mainly due to the hops content. It's a sweet, slightly funky, well-balanced flavor.

F: A well-carbonated beer with a somewhat slick finish. Light- to medium-bodied.

O: On the whole, this is a light and enjoyable saison. Drinkable.

Light, lemon color and mostly transparent with tons of frothy, mountainous head. Fresh, citrusy, piney, funky, tropical aroma. Hints of lemon and orange flavor. Pine and leaf. Ample Brett funk. Quite hoppy and dry with a pleasant and light acid. Light body, ample carbonation and dry finish. Standard for the style yet very well executed.
