Thanks to rudzud
Light creamy fizzy head, very hazy, little lacing

Nose nice funk, floral grassy funk, little fruity, little acidic fruity lacto funk, grassy hay, little phenol spices, wheat, basic lemony fruity, nice esters fruity pear like.

Taste very tart, sweet lemonade and acidic, little flemmy, good funk level, big vinegar acidity, little fruity ester, pear note, mild wheat as grassy hay funk, nice lemon sour, flemmy tart finish.

Mouth is med bod, light carb, nice acidity and funk

Overall pretty nice, nose has great funk not enough lemon, Taste plenty of lemon but not as much saison or funk, but still a great beer.

Sample at Mikkeller Beer Celebration Copenhagen 2017, red session. Aroma is spicy with pickle notes, tart and acetic. Taste follows tart and dry, like pickle juice with dill flavor. Really interesting overall.

Received in a trade. Shared with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice lightly hazy golden hue with a thin white head that fades to leave thin wisps and a light blanket.

S - Aromas of nice tart lemony saison. Nice light funk, good phenols. There are excellent pear notes.

T - Taste is similar to the nose, excellent tart lemons, nice lighter pear. There is a very nice vinegar note almost vegetative but enjoyable.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, crisp, clean.

O - Overall this was a very nice saison. Excellent fruity notes with nice saison balance. Super drinkable!
