3.09/5 rDev -25%
Odd beer. Advertises itself as a "Belgian farmhouse," which I take to be a saison. It is not. It is closer to a lambic. Sour taste, artificial strawberry sweet, very little carbonation for a saison. Loses its head immediately after poor. No funk, ABV too high. Color nice, tho. I'll not buy again.

Pours a hazy yellow with gold and orange highlights. A very acidic fizzy carbontion, somewhat boring but very to style.
There's a lot of citrus aromas. Strawberry dominates but the citric notes bring out hints of orange, pineapple, and passion fruit.
I'm not a big fan of strawberry, but thankfully the mix of light pepper, strong acidic notes, and a relatively minimalist malt bill keeps this pretty exciting.
Sour yet carbonated well enough to keep it interest. The 9.5% is very hard to notice.
Two major flaws with this beer. The price is high. The bottle is annoyingly large. I hope this is a beer that's WELL distributed otherwise opening this means 10 others aren't going to get it, really who makes a damn 765 ml sour? Put it in an 11.2 oz bottle or something!
