What the brewers say

“An airy and fluffy malt bill is fermented with wild Missouri yeast and bacteria and our house saison blend. This refreshing and delicate farmhouse ale was aged in wine barrels before it was naturally conditioned in this bottle.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Moderate lemon note with light tart and Lacto. Moderate fruity esters including grapefruit and a light orange. Brett funk with some tropical fruit, passion fruit, slight wet-hay.”

Flavor: “Highly carbonated but light carbonic bite, probably due to the Lacto, and a malt bill that provides creaminess despite being weightless. Bright fruity notes with tart lime, grapefruit, and a light spiciness. Tropical passion fruit is forefront with some earthy wet-hay barnyard Brett funk. Bright lemon zest opens up to some stone and tropical fruit—so much gorgeous Brett flavor.”

Overall: “Very refreshing. Light, dry, tart, and fruity with a supporting funky complexity. A very delicious, crushable, funky saison that uses a very light malt bill and well-selected hops to paint a beautiful canvas of Brett complexity. Extremely drinkable and endearingly complex, with a perfect finish.”
