Assembly #5
Smell of lemon, yeast, orange peel. Seems to be a good sour beer.
First sips are disapointing. Flavorless, mineral, hint of lemon. Barely sour and low carbonation. Very fresh however. The worst assembly so far.

A: Pours a slightly cloudy pale apricot with 5 fingers of fluffy white head with an abundance of lacing.

S: Yeasty tangy bread, lemons, light funkiness, mineral notes and wet hay and wood.

T: Taste follows the smell with dank funkiness, lemon rind, yeasty bread, wet hay and light oak.

M: Moderate and high carbonation

O: An interesting take on a saison with funky wild notes, but probably not something I would reach for again.

Sampled at VT Brewfest. Believe it was on tap but could just as likely be from the bottle.

A-My notes are thin and near gibberish... I believed it poured somewhere near orange.

S-Funky, tart, spicy. More barny, funkified yeast than sour. Just a little bit of wood. Generic fruity sweetness.

T-Spice from the yeast. Signature rye flavor. Funky yeast that has the easy to describe as 'barny' flavor. Little bits of wood. Mild sweetness.

M-Medium bodied with a quick finish. No alcohol. Softer carbonation.

O-Wouldn't mind another go at this beer. Probably missing much of the intricacies hiding here.

Bottle shared with Sammy and Liam.

Beer is cloudy yellow in colour, with a small white head.

Nose contains a slight funk, with some brett. Light fruit.

Taste contains a nice yeast flavour, a bit spicy. Light fruits and a dry finish. A very slight tartness. Nice fruity finish. Light. Nice stuff.

Medium bodied, moderately carbonated.

Overall, good stuff for sure.

Thanks to Marc for the bottle!

This was an unexpected surprise. I thought this was a basic strong ale, but in fact it was a tasty, well-balanced sour. Hazy golden-yellow pour, with a good firm white head that retained well and laced the glass nicely. There was some odd funk in the aroma upon opening the bottle, almost diapery, but after pouring, that faded, and more of an earthy, lemony aroma came out. In the taste, candied lemon peel, earthy barnyard funk, candi sugar, wet wood, notes of floral spice. Mild tartness, just enough to get the salivary glands working. Well-balanced mouthfeel, medium body. Very nice overall.
