look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

On tap at Tired Hands Fermentaria.

Pours a hazy yellow with fine, soapy head.

Smell is yeasty and crisp with bright fruitiness and notes of peaches and citrus.

Taste is fruity and yeasty with some esters and notes of peaches, citrus, peppery brett and a smidge of banana. Complex with a dry finish.

Mouthfeel is thin to medium with bright carbonation.

Overall, a very bright and tasty saison.

On draft at the Fermentaria, pours yellowy and hazed, minor off white cap, leaves nice looking fine lacing.

Serious barnyard note on the nose....

Delicious saison, on the tart side, which is fine with me. More barnyard, yeasty goodness, tart apples...complex and tasty..well worth a try

L: Hazy, opaque yellow with a soapy white head. Medium-poor retention; the head fizzes mostly away, leaving a small ring with spotty lacing.

S: Tart and lightly funky; lemon juice, green apple skin, hay, barnyard/light mildew, tart pineapple, passionfruit, white grape, grass.

T: Quit sour; lemon juice, lemon zest, green apple skin, white wine vinegar. Moderately funky; hay, mildew, general mustiness. Cracker/white bread malt backbone. Medium acidity. White grape, white wine, and grass. Finishes very dry and moderately sour.

F: Light, but not watery. Highly carbonated. Rolling and smooth like champagne.

O: One of the best Brett/sour saisons I can imagine. Incredibly flavorful and balanced. I wish I could drink this beer for the rest of my life.

The clear pale gold body has a minimal sparkle and is topped with a persistent, pearl white blanket.

Smell is apple and pear with funky hay and barnyard.

Lightly tart notes of pear, lemon and guava lead a bubbly froth over a medium, crisp body that finishes semi-dry. This is really drinkable and tasty.

Pours pale gold, translucent, good carbonation, moderate head. Aroma has tart yeast, light citrus, bit of loam funk. Taste is light and refreshing, tart without being sour, still get some classic saison notes (earthy yeast, “barnyard”, etc) with piquant lemon zest and grassy hops on the end. Very well done

Batch #16. Had a glass at the brewery and among other great beers, this still stood out. Perfect balance of acid, light funk and spice. Bright and fresh, crisp and wonderfully drinkable. I want more.
