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

Sample at Mikkeller Beer Celebration Copenhagen 2017, yellow session. Aroma has yeast funk, dusty grapes and grains, fermented stonefruits. Taste has mostly tart, unripe stonefruits. Dry, light bodied.

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.

A-Poured from a Tired Hands growler into a wine glass. Turbid golden straw color, inch of Meringe like head
S- You get a lot of earthiness, Wet Hay, Mustiness,Some tropical Guava notes as well
T- Everything you get from the smell,big amount of earthyness and tropical fruit. Ends with a zippy Lemon like tartness that begs you to take another sip.
M-Medium bodied, For such a low ABV the cereal grains play a big part in making this beer feel substantial, pretty low carbed.
O- This is maybe my favorite saison. There is a lot to like here. This beer is flawless and has a brightness to it that makes it infinately drinkable. I'm excited to try this one when it's being fermented in the Foeders at the new facility. Seek this out and cherish it

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.
