Had this at El Barrio in Birmingham.

I'd call this a saison for beginners as it was not strong on Brett funk. It is definitely drinkable but not notable.

This is very much an American style saison. It reaches into Belgian ale territory. Yeasty nose. Strong yeast, dough, and of course the sweetness. Seems like a good level of funk on things too, but in a very mild sense. If other brewers are going to try to make a saison, they should be aiming for this instead of the generic versions I am tired of coming across. I'd drink more than one of this. And that's coming from a saison snob.
