meh. pours a little cloudy and pale golden in color. a very small white head just a quater inch thick is there on top. the smell is that same yeast they used in the koop de ville, which is really all i can smell in this. the hops dont come in until the taste. its very similar to the koop in flavor too, fruity and sweet from the yeast, but there is a decent floral hop vibe in the finish which is a nice addition. i dont know what to make of this really, its drinkable enough and tastes alright, but it doesnt yell saison at me, sort of a weird hybrid ale. the yeast is too familiar from their other beers to get past for me. not my favorite, but fairly complex and probably worth a try if you havnt had their koop de ville brew.

Had this one on tap yesterday at the Wynkoop Brewing Company in Denver. Listed as a Belgian style ale, although no other descriptions were forthcoming. Golden color, with a decent white head. This one has a pretty funky nose, horse blanket, brett and a late tartness. On the palate, medium bodied and funky, as more of the bretty tartness comes through.
