500mL into a tulip. Pours a hazy pale lemon yellow w/ a bright white head.

Aroma is sour and acidic, grassy, a little funky.

Taste is pale biscuity malt, acidic, lemony. Wheat malt? Lactic sourness. Oak. A touch of funk.

Mouthfeel is light and crisp. Maybe a little thin.

Overall a unique, refreshing saison.

Purchased in St. Louis and transported to home in my luggage. Poured into a stemmed tulip glass.

A unique vinous taste. A good beer but in this world of great beers, this beer could be called lacking. Lots of sediment in this bottle. 3.75

A – Pours a slightly hazy pale yellow/straw colored with a one-finger off-white slightly rocky head that dissipated too quickly (-). Average Belgian lacing. 3.5

S – Some funk/farmyard, citrus, some sour, minute peppery. 4

T – A tinch of sweetness in the start, some vinous qualities/like white wine – sauvignon blanc, lactic sour. 3.75

MF – Medium-body, dry, clean and acidic in the finish. 4
