500 ml bottle poured into a white wine glass. Bottled May 2014.

Pours a brilliant deep gold with orange highlights and three fingers of fizzy white head that recedes to a tiny collar with minimal lacing.

Aroma is a pleasant mix of peach, lemon, white grape, and a touch of funk. Taste is more of the same. And delicious. A zesty medley of sweet, tart and lightly sour with the funk somewhat subdued but present throughout. There are some light grassy hop notes, but no real bitterness. Body is light and crisp and finishes clean and dry.

Wow, this was the perfect beer for sitting outside on a warm sunny Easter Sunday. I don't drink a lot of saisons but this is probably my favorite I've ever had.

Dry, brett, and funk on the nose but not in the mouth. I like the comparison to a well-polished Arthur Nothing crazy about it, just perfectly executed. Exceeded expectations in every way.
