The aroma is powdery, sweet strawberry, sweet rose watery funkyness, damp mustiness, with just a hint of summer farmyard. It’s a light and crisp beer with green strawberry tartness, moderate acidity and some earthy funkyness. A very approachable Brett beer I’d say

L: Poured from a bottle to a tulip glass. Had a bright orange color and a cloudy texture. There was a quarter inch of foamy head that lasted an average amount of time. Below average lacing.

S: A sweet, alluring aroma of citrus fruit, barnyard funk, yeast, strawberries, and spices.

T: Tasted of a bunch of the advertised strawberries, some Belgian-style yeast, light citrus notes (orange), a light maltiness, a woody quality, and light spices. I never really considered strawberries for a saison, but this one does it right. It's vibrant, fruity, and refreshing. Very tasty.

F: A well-carbonated beer with a lively finish. Medium-bodied.

O: Not your typical saison here, and that's a good thing. Well worth seeking out.

Cloudy pale rose with a bubbly white head.

Smell is brett-laden funk, heavy on the wood and cheese, paired with fresh, wild strawberry jam.

Taste flips the ordering, starting with tart and spiced strawberry jam followed by a nice oaky, bretty funk, some lactic cheese, and lemon jelly.

Nice and light, frothy and dry, this is one of the better strawberry saisons, sours or wilds I've had by anyone.
