got this bottle at a localish beer shop probably 2 years ago at this point....and it was on the blowout vintage bin for probably a buck or a few at the time. it is quite probable that this is the first batch of this beer so bear that in mind...

brew looks nice enough with a translucent orange and a finger of frothy head that dissipates to a thin layer of fizz that hangs on the surface. very lively effervescence. nose is heavy mineral over light sweet grassiness. the taste is more of the same, but I'm overwhelmed by the mineral flavor. it really tastes like water...kind of like when you fill your glass at a tasting with water so that you can both rinse your glass while also hydrating...the end result is beer flavored water. that's this...no, beer flavored seltzer. not really my bag. I could see this being a nice beer to sip out in the sun on a REALLY hot day and I could drink this if I had to, but I don't.

Well this is certainly an interesting and unique beer. Being that 90% of beers that describe themselves that way are often uninteresting, not unique and well, shitty, . . . we shall see.

Pours very light, some cloudiness to it, 1/4" white head. Lemon funk very mild but noticeable in the aroma.

Taste is a well carbonated mild saison essentially. Session saison. Bitterness is above what was expected, they hopped this thing. A little bit of spice rack in the mouth feel. A tiny bit of hay to it. I liked it but also found it to be cost prohibitive, so prolly would not seek out again even though it was a good beer.

Very clean. crisp, lager like, almost a kolsch-like body, flavor & mouthfeel. Very dry. Slightly sulfuric on the palate. Very delicate Brett characteristics come through in the finish. Horse blanket, Leather. Such a great expression of a farmhouse beer.
