Close to two fingers worth of active fizzy quickly receding off white colored head... Once receded it leaves a mostly full veil of lacing and slight-to-moderate collor... A limited bit of carbonation... Just a few very rapid streaks along the sides of the glass... The color is a muted golden peach... There is a subtle haziness suspended throughout... The nose is slightly subdued but quite appealing... At the forefront is a near perfect mix of Belgian yeast and farmhouse funkiness... Loaded with fresh cut grass notes... A very light overly ripe fruit character... Buried deep down beneath the surface are the faint hints of ginger... The flavor profile falls a bit flat... An odd mix of Belgian yeast, grassy notes and funk none of which seems to compliment one another... The is a slightly watered down lactic sourness... Some white grapes... Some tannins as well... I hate to say it, but some papery cardboard notes as well... On the fuller side of light bodied... Lots of prickly spry carbonation... The finish is exceedingly dry... Not a terrible beer, but far from a great one... I had high expectations and ended up being a bit let down... I have fairly high expectations of both Saint Somewhere and Terry Hawbarker, but this one doesn't do either justice... At it's core, this one is a slightly sub par Saison, slightly sub par sour, and slightly sub par offering...

Served on-tap at Al's of Hampden. A vintage keg stashed away.

A - Pours hazy golden yellow with a beautiful one and a half finger tall white head, quickly dissipating down to a light film, leaving small trails of lace on the sides of the glass.

S - Smells of strong kumquat fruitiness, very light spice, but of musty funk, dash of earthy mineral and some doughy pale malt.

T - Starts off with a quick hit of peppery spice quickly being enveloped by the strong kumquat fruitiness, mild funk, damp earth and some chewy pale malt. Finish is pretty dry, lingering long after the finish.

M - Medium body with moderate carbonation. Fruity, funky feel with a good amount of dryness backing it up.

O - Just as when it came out the draft is fruitier than in the bottles. I think I prefer the draft version as the fruit comes through more, as was intended. Looking forward to seeing how it ages in the bottles.
