Had this a few years ago when brought to Jupiter as part of Sour Sunday and at a bottle share at FiftyFifty. Pours mostly a cloudy golden and dark yellow with a fine 1/4" white head on the top. Aroma was really chill, I had no expectations like the Rolling Stones song going into this, but there just wasn't much poppin' off here, nothing bretty, sour or fruity. Some real marginalized grain and oak notes and that was about it.

The taste was a gritty, grainy unfiltered experience. Some lemon and cherry like notes push this beer in the sour direction. Seems to be lacking almost everything I go looking for in a saison. Wasn't sure what this beer was trying to do. I did like the seemingly maltier presence to it compared to other saisons, I would say this is more of a spring saison than a summer one. The sourness is there but this is a weird hodgepodge style beer. Enjoyable, but also forgetable.

Reminds me a little bit like Russian River's Sanctification. Very good!

Served from a 375 ml bottle, with no date that I could find. Appearance is a cloudy light yellow, with nice lacing. The aroma is lemony with a yeasty funk. The taste is heavy on the lemon, with nice oak background. It's a fine saison, more tart and lemony than most.

Draft at Old Chicago Lakewood Union. Hazy orange golden pour with tight creamy head. Soft aroma hints at mild tartness, grapes, yeast and fruity sweetness. Taste follows , sweet, gentle tartness, enough of the Saison notes sneaking through to remind you of the style. Nice texture, and finish

Poured from a bottle marked May 2015 into a snifter. Cloudy golden yellow with a decent initial head and good lacing. Sour sweet smell. Smell and taste is of tart lemons. Earthy and rustic, nice beer.

Picked up a 375 ml bottle from the Belmont Station in late August for $7.79. Bottled in February 2015.

Beer poured golden with a decent white head that is leaving some lacing behind.

Nose is lemony with a touch of horse blanket.

Taste is lemony with a touch of oak over a nice saison base brew. Finish is nice and tart.

Feel is light and very refreshing. Fits the style with near perfection.

Overall this is a very well designed beer. Base beer is very solid with the brett addition adding a big lemon emphasis which pushes to my outer limits on my pallet's tart-o-meter. Glad i tried!
