Smells wonderful - hops, floral, pleasant. But, a bit bitter initially with lots or coriander on the finish.

Wow, really nice hoppy saison here, huge head, nice bready tart grape, powdered donut, grass, wheat, juicy, funky, creamy, smooth. Refreshing, delicious.

Holy mother this beer is sour, tart and dank. Very musty and acidic. I just couldn’t get through more than a few swallows. Started off great, looks amazing, slightly hazy golden with loads of fluffy white head and some spotty lingering lacing. Smells of yeast, malt, sour fruit and some biscuit. But the taste was just over-the-top sour, dank, funky, acidic. I’m a huge fan of Prairie but this style just didn’t do it for me.

A: Poured into a tulip glass to a hazed golden orange topped by a dense two finger white head which retains very well and leaves excellent lacing
S: Smells of funk, lemon zest, fresh cut grass, and a little tartness
T: Taste is a little lemony followed by some barnyard funk with some horseblanket. Hint of tartness and slight grassyness. White pepper comes in as well as some other spicy notes. Swallow is more funk, light lemony tartness, peppery spice and more grassy notes with a hint of hay and barnyard.
M: This beer has a moderate amount of body with a slightly creamy mouthfeel. Carbonation is effervescent and just slightly prickly while the beer has a drying finish.
O: Wow. This is one well made saison. Great flavors and complexity helps to keep things interesting. This one seems to do everything right in my mind and it's pretty approachable. Nothing is too in your face and the beer has a great amount of balance. Definitely worth trying if you fan find it.

L great
S lovely

F Bubbly, I mean a lot of carbonation. Pour carefully like an Orval.
O Excellence beer but it's price and the size bottle in comes in is a big negative for me. Package this and your Funky Gold Citra in four packs please!

Poured a cloudy orange body with two-finger head and lace ring down glass. The aroma is citric hops with some acidity and bit of sourness as well. Smooth, slightly sour, acidic hops balance with an enjoyable yeast presence with this tangerine-like sweet vibe that leads to a great finish for a beer that is a bit fluffy.

Appears to have been bottled June 7, 2016 if this is a Juilan date.

Pours a cloudy golden color with a thick foamy head. Retention and lacing are very good. Tart aroma. Brettomyces but not overpowering. There is some citrus in there. Dry hopped taste. Very smooth. Good Brett. Not overpowering at all. Medium bodied with moderate to heavy carbonation. This is a good berr.

Poured into a tulip, the appearance was a ruddy burnt dark orange almost amber color with a finger’s worth of white foamy head that receded ever so slightly. Stringy sliding lace. The aroma had some lemongrass, white pepper, dried dough, herbal dried sweetness, a touch of floral quality, light dried earthiness, some dried leaves, and a little bit of sweet wood. The flavor leaned sweet at first and then developed some dry spicy to herbal character as it warmed. Aftertaste was floral, herbal and sweet. Finish was semi-dry with an herbal to floral tone coming about. The palate was almost medium bodied, seemed just a touch under and had a pretty good sipping quality about it. Moderate carbonation. ABV felt fine. Overall, pretty good saison that I could go at again.

Reviewed from notes. Poured from a 16.9 oz. bottle into a Cigar City Brewing goblet.

A: Dull gold, with lots of visible carbonation and a two-finger wheat head that has great retention. Quite hazy.

S: Light lactic tartness and Brettanomyces musty funk. Some biscuit malts, a bit yeasty, and some minerality. Light citrus hops as well. Not a huge aroma, but nice and balanced.

T: Brett earthiness and funk, citrus, grassy and lighter tropical fruity hops. Light lemony tartness, citric acidity. Cracker malts, some saison yeastiness. Some pineapple comes as it warms (likely from the Brett), and the dry funk lasts with the light fruity hoppy flavors in the hang.

M: Medium-bodied - light overall but a bit heavier than expected from the appearance. A good amount of carbonation sensation and low alcohol presence.

O: Quite enjoyable, but I didn't care for it as much as the (also accessible) Hop Savant from Crooked Stave. Still a good choice though.
