I brewed this in late April and wanted to post some tasting notes. I added saison yeast while it was in secondary because the gravity wasn't moving so it might differ a bit from the recipe as posted.
Pours a clear light golden color. Pretty good head retention.
Extremely strong funk aroma. You can smell the funk on this from across the room. I would say it has a slight medicinal quality. I fermented the lacto sub-batch and the brett sub-batch pretty warm so I'm attributing it to that. There's also some citrus notes and a slight spiciness, probably from the saison yeast.
Moderate carbonation. Light mouthfeel.
Taste begins with a sweetness and finishes with a light, refreshing tartness. Not much detectable funk here.
Pretty interesting overall, although the initial funkiness is a bit off-putting.
