Pours a pale straw colour with mild haze. Bubbly white head decent retention, with foamy lace. Steady bead. Bit pale, but decent.

Smells slightly rustic but mostly vinous. Touch of Chardonnay oak, dried grass and rosemary. Bit simple, but decent enough characters.

Taste is funky, barnyardy upfront. Develops vinous grape notes midway, slightly tart, then a bitter but also slightly yeasty and almost chalky finish. Still retains some funk, but doesn't quite burst with fresh flavours. Alright.

Bit of sizzle, OK body but not great.

Seems a little like a homebrew saison, with a saison yeast strain and not much else crafting wise. Drinkable enough.
