4.1/5 rDev -0.5%
Pours a cloudy, pale yellow with minimal head retention.
Smells strong of sour grapes with yeasty notes present as well.
It comes on subtle with some fruit notes but then quickly grows in strength and complexity as sour grape flavors take over. It has a medium carbonated, medium bodied mouthfeel. It finishes very tart and dry.
I'm still getting into sours but I really enjoyed this beer. It drinks like a wine and it's definitely got a lot flavor. Might not be a starter beer but worth a try.

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.
