375ml bottle poured into tulip 5/8/15

A murky bright yellow, enough clarity to see lots of tiny bubbles streaming up the side feeding a dense finger of foam that sits around for a few sips leaving lots of random lace deep down the glass

S banana, apple, pear, orange peel some hard to place spice and a mild yeast profile that never really gets funky

T more spicy grains, fairly fruity, lemon comes out a little , not tart, sour or funky and still has an interesting yeast strain that's hard to place but works

M a bit of an explosion upon entry and ends up a little foamy, slick on the palate and somehow gritty t the same time

O goes down fast for something that could leave a mark, not overly complex compared to some beers I've had from these guys but respectable at every turn

I liked it but didn't completely fall for it, worth a try but perhaps I caught it at an awkward age

Surprisingly liked it more then seizon Bretta. A very enjoyable nose with a hint if fruityness that I didn't expect. Taste is your standard funky but not sour saison. Finish is slightly bitter and quick, would have liked something more there. Overall solidly good beer.

Poured an initial massive four fingers of thick white head which slowly settled into a cloudy golden orange body with two fingers of head. Overall impression of appearance is of a nice saison, that due to the rustic nature of the beer explodes with head. Scents of fruit upfront with notes of orange, pear, a light, tart funk imparting mild lemon and barnyard aromas, with a moderate phenol presence giving notes of clove and white pepper at medium-low levels mingling with the fruity aromas. Soft, perfume-like hops and soft, sweet malt contribute to background aromas. Overall impression of aroma is of a fantastic saison highlighting fruit and spice aromas, melded together in harmony. Flavor begins with notes of light fruit imparting notes of orange flesh and orange peel and light notes of lemon zest mingled with light earthy hay and barnyard funk and light phenols of white pepper and clove. Middle gains in phenols leading to medium-low white pepper and clove character mingling with citrus fruit and light floral hops and barnyard funk with a light sourness. Finish is dry with notes of white pepper and clove, fruity notes of citrus, orange, lemon and zest, light sourness and funk with a barnyard and earthy character with a moderate bitterness. Aftertaste is white pepper, floral hops, orange zest and a moderate bitterness. Overall impression of flavor is of a very well crafted saison that is flavorful imparting many flavors, including wild barnyard character fitting a true farmhouse ale, as well as the fruit and spice of the style. Fantastic. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with effervescent carbonation and a juicy initial feel that ends drying and lightly puckering. Overall impression of mouthfeel is of a fantastic saison. Overall this is one of the best saisons I have tried. It has a fantastic aroma and flavor, imparting all the notes of the style layered with excellent farmhouse rustic character and a magnificent mouthfeel. A true farmhouse ale.

Cloudy, light amber color. Small head with some chunky, streaky lace.

Smells of stew meat--read: earthy. A bit sour.

Tart finish and aftertaste. The start is relatively neutral. Very spritzy with a thin body. The sourness reminds me the sour drinks women would order in the 70s. Not quite as sweet, but close.

Poured in an Octoberfest mug. Semi-cloudy yellow, lots of carbonation with a big frothy head. Very lively with a tint of sour. Dry and earthy. I could smell spices but not distinguish them. Alcohol was hidden well. Overall a nice yeasty brew which reminded my a lot of beers from the Black Forest area.
