22 ounce bottle into a tulip glass. Bottled 4/17/17, had 6/30/17.

Pours a clear golden orange, with a half inch foamy head and some foamy lacing. Active carbonation. Smells of wine, Belgian yeast, white grapes, black pepper, light spices, oak, a little malt, some brett. The flavor is wine, some brett, Belgian yeast, malt, white grapes, light spices, some apples. Smooth, slightly light bodied for the style, well carbonated.

Great aroma and very good flavor, but feels a touch thin. I really liked it overall, but considering the brewery and the price point, maybe oughta be better. Second bottle aging, we’ll see....

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours clear and golden colored with a very small head; webby lacing lingers, however

Smell: Vinous and leathery, with apricot and pear tones

Taste: The Brett is overpowering, with leathery funk dominating from start to finish; vinous white wine grape complemented by apricot and pear, through the middle, along with a bitter, apricot pit flavor that joins in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with low to moderate carbonation

Overall: This is one of those beers that just doesn't work for me; really funky and phenolic with the more interesting elements becoming overwhelmed

Pours clear, gold in color with 3/4 inch head. Taste is big white grape, apple, hay, and oak. Light bodied, high carbonation, and earthy. Makes for a really tasty, true to style, clean saison. I have other saisons I prefer, but this is good.

Rich hooked this one up... Waxed bottle with a flimsy brown paper label.

Shared with COOPMatt and DerekA while chatting about the state of local breweries.

Pours a hazy light orange.. good 1" head with nice retention and lacing.

Nose is lightly bretty with apricot esters and some background bubblegum phenols.

Really respectable Saison.. dry and light esters.. oak notes come with big hits of Oregon Pinot.. hints of barrel acidity on the finish ties things together.

I REALLY want some cellar bottles.

Pours a beautiful clear yellow gold with a finger of white head. Smells of pears, oak, and wine. Tastes of lots of oak, pears, apricots, white wine, and some sourness. Medium light body, very dry, slightly tannic, and with medium carbonation. Overall this is an excellent Saison that really lets the barrel aging shine through. Didn't think it would be worth the price but I'm glad I bought it.
