Poured cloudy straw with good head retention. Smells nice and funky. More like a gueuze, without the oak. Flavors abound in addition to the funk and it has a smooth flavor profile, more so than so many others. Mouthfeel lends to the balance.

L: Body is a slightly cloudy golden orange. Finger width white head that quickly receded, leaving a ring around the glass.

S: Plenty of funky citrus, pear, apple, brett, mild biscuit.

T: Same as the nose, dry, tart but not sour, and some vanilla upon swallowing.

F: Light bodied with high carbonation. Crisp and refreshing with a mild warmth upon swallowing.

Major gusher, lost some despite having glass at ready.

Cloudy, almost turbid gold topped by enldlessly rising white head. When it finally retreats a lasting, thick cap remains.

Strong aroma, fronted by lemon-limey and barnyard, with lighter tart notes behind it, and a general peppery spice that brings it incredble depth and complexity.

All the flavors of the nose, balanced perfectly, with an emerging bitter spice to it that really sets this one apart, and earthy notes back it all up beautifully.

Thick for style, pleasantly so, highly carbed, clean deep finish, man this one hits a homerun here also. Linger is complex and entices next sip.

Stunningly fine beer. Highest recommendation.

Bottle 5457, best by 3/19, bought in Portland 11/14.
A-this beer is all effervescence! It explodes into tons of white rocky head atop a golden brew. The foam has some serious staying power
S-a saison with some Brett funk. Reminds be a bit of saison DuPont.
T-the upfront earthy peppery notes is overtaken by a dirty barnyard funk that is strong
M-very dry with tons of hot bubbly zing. Lingering Brett funk finish. Some noticeable alcohol in the finish as well
O-this is a funky, super lively farmhouse ale. The Brett is overpowering. Has a nice backbone but too much funk.
