Murky straw colored with substantial white head. Aromas of passion fruit, white whine, bit of lemon, minerals. Taste is similar. Mouthfeel is somewhat thin but there's a crispness in the finish that is really pleasant. Very good, interesting beer that I hope to come back to.

A - Whoa. Yeah, that's pretty on point for a saison. Huge, towering, pillowy, 5 finger-high head with great retention and lace. Hazy banana yellow body.

S - Bold. Musky horse blanket, kiwi, hay, wheat and yellow raisins.

T - Soft profile. Semi-sweet wheat, banana, dry grass, green apple, touch of that pleasant horse blanket funk from the nose, and a really nice light wasabi backend.

M - Light, almost effervescent body.

O - A delicious, light, funky saison.

Hazy golden orange, looks like pineapple juice. Aggressive whit head.

Smells like pineapple, pear, white grapes. Lots of funky brett.

Juicy fruit flavor. White smarties. White wine. Green apple. Tart.

Full body with moderate carbonation. Prickly and puckering.

I enjoyed this one white a bit. Very fruity and funky.
