16 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 8/15/2019. Pours fairly hazy/cloudy medium orange/amber/light reddish color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and fluffy light pink head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice dense foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big fairly tart/tangy peaches, raspberries, fruit skin/seeds/pits, plum, pear, apricot, strawberry, lemon, lime, orange, melon, red apple, red grape/wine, peppercorn, oak, hay, straw, herbal, floral, grass, wheat, wheat, biscuit dough, light toast, light leathery/musty Brett funk, and yeast/oak earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of peaches, raspberries, fruity/funky/spicy yeast, pale/wheat malts, and light-moderate oak/earthy hop notes; with big strength. Taste of big fairly tart/tangy peaches, raspberries, fruit skin/seeds/pits, plum, pear, apricot, strawberry, lemon, lime, orange, melon, red apple, red grape/wine, peppercorn, oak, hay, straw, herbal, floral, grass, wheat, wheat, biscuit dough, light toast, light leathery/musty Brett funk, and yeast/oak earthiness. Light-moderate peppery yeast spiciness; herbal, floral, grassy bitterness; and fruit tang/tartness on the finish. Lingering notes of tart/tangy peaches, raspberries, fruit skin/seeds/pits, plum, pear, apricot, strawberry, lemon, lime, orange, melon, red apple, red grape/wine, peppercorn, oak, hay, straw, herbal, floral, grass, wheat, wheat, biscuit dough, light toast, light leathery/musty Brett funk, and yeast/oak earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of peaches, raspberries, fruity/funky/spicy yeast, pale/wheat malts, and light-moderate oak/earthy hop flavors; with a fantastic malt/bitter/spiciness and tart/tangy fruit balance; with no puckering/astringent flavors after the finish. Fairly crisp/clean finishing. Light-moderate increasing dryness from lingering bitter/spiciness, tart/tangy fruit, and carbonation. Medium-plus carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready/grainy, and sticky/tangy/tannic balanced mouthfeel that is fantastic. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.8%. Overall this is an outstanding fruited saison. All around awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of peaches, raspberries, fruity/funky/spicy yeast, pale/wheat malts, and light-moderate oak/earthy hop flavors; very smooth, refreshing, and fairly crisp/clean to drink with the mellowly acidic/tangy/drying finish. Great soft feel. Very flavorful and not watery for the ABV. Fantastic balance of juicy fruits, Brett/Bacteria/Saison yeast complexity, and pale/wheat malts against acidity. Solid oak and earthy hop presence. Minimal residual sweetness with crisp dryness. A highly enjoyable offering, and impressive style example as expected. Fantastic summer beer.
