look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

A-Pours with a full head of light bubbly foam over an incredibly cloudy brown-orange liquid. Strong sheets of lacing down the side of the glass.

S- Leather, musty, medicinal. A little sour. My wife rejects it as 'hairspray' but I'm not hating it. Certainly not the typical saison, but interesting if nothing else.

T- This kinda runs the gamut in terms of fruity, sour, sweet, bitter, musty. A little bit of everything. A little fruity with cherry and raspberry.

M- it's bizarrely hot, with some aspects of grain alcohol. Also extremely carbonated. This beer definitely falls flat in terms of the mouthfeel.

O- Interesting. I'm not sure I would get this again, but it'd be good as something to savor on a warm summer night (as tonight in fact), or as a break for something different at the bar.

L: Dark amber to dark copper, 2” head, fluffy and persistent.
S: Spicy, herbal and sour with floral herbal aromas leading the way with some barnyard in the background.
T: Rich malt with a crisp tartness throughout, lemon, floral, and almost a cherry tartness on the finish, moderate funk. Moderate hops provide some balancing bitterness
F: Medium light body, highly effervescent, dry and tart. Has the Brett texture nailed.
O: An excellent funky saison.

2015 vintage. fresh as a daisy. big bottle into .3 L glass.

A: pours a very rich caramel color. pretty clear.

S: barnyard, leather, lots of brett.

T: really barny. tart too. a little grainy in towards the finish and there is definitely an interesting flavor I cant put my finger on. pickle brine? regardless, I like it.

M: moderate amount of carb on a medium body.

D: a really good saison. not sure if I get the rose hips and petals, but I appreciate the complexity between the brett, malt, and herbs. well done. would happily drink more of this.
