Burdock Brewing Brett Farmhouse Saison at 6.5% ABV (C$7.25 at Andrew Hilton Wine & Spirits, 375 ml, no packaging date or best before, acquired 25-Mar-2019, reviewed 3-May-2019)

Appearance: clear bright straw with a pillowy white head diminishing gradually to a persistent thick cap, moderate stringy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: barnyard funk, white grape must, crackery pale malt, green apple, white pepper. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter, light funky tart. (7/10) Palate: medium-light body, moderate carbonation, dry medium duration slightly astringent funky finish. (3/5)

Obvious Brett domination right from the initial pour, with its huge billowing white head and barnyard funky aroma. Unfortunately that Brett domination comes through somewhat thin and sharp on the tongue, finishing slightly astringent. Not bad overall, but not quite where I’d like the balance to be. (14/20)
