A: Poured from a growler to a pint glass. Had a yellow color and a hazy consistency. There was a small amount of foamy head that quickly dissipated. Average lacing.

S: A pretty good aroma of yeast, malt, and some citrus.

T: Tasted of Belgian yeast, a light amount of malt, and a hint of citrus in the finish. This is a solid, easy to like flavor. Not quite as heavy on the funk as most Belgian saisons, but tasty nonetheless.

M: A decent amount of carbonation with a sharp, lively finish. Medium-bodied.

O: On the whole, a solid, likeable, well done beer. Drinkable.

Served from bottle into a Westbrook snifter (proper!). Poured a hazy golden yellow-orange with a three finger pure white fluffy head that subsided to one finger very slowly. Maintained nice lacing through. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, fruit, spice, funk, earth, and barnyard. The flavor was of sweet malt, fruit, big funk, spice, earth, and horseblanket. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a fairly good brew. I found it really quite interesting what was going on in this one. The aroma definitely had a big gaminess going on that was quite intriguing for the style with the fruit character mixed in. On the flavor it was dominated by funk without a doubt. If you love massively funky brews AND Saisons, this is your brew without a doubt.

Pours a cloudy gold with a soapy white head that settles to a solid cap, leaving behind lots of spotty lacing. Lovely aromas of citrusy hops, light malts, earthy Brett, lots of tropical notes of papaya, pineapple, and mango, and just a bit of plastic. Taste is similarly tropical, with more peach, mango, and papaya, a nicely balanced malt body, earthy Brettanomyces, and citrus hops. Quite drinkable, with a medium body, good carbonation, and pleasantly dry finish. Really nice Saison, I'm definitely looking forward to more in the series!
