Served bottle poured into a delirium tremens snifter
A - For me this was a classic example of a saison color and clarity. Orangey deep yellow color that poured cloudy with a significant amount of carbonation (exemplified by the almost champagne burst when opened).
S - Boozy sour nose. Definitely has a sour orange citrusy funk the "singes the nostrils" a bit.
T - Sour patch candy feel. Familiar funky saison profile with a sweeter sip. The lemon wood again is apparent with the overall sour citrus taste. Has that high alcohol boozy throat to the finish. For me this is a one serving beer. The large format bottle is best split 3 ways.
M - Great smooth mouthfeel. The sour candy taste makes you want to drink this ale fast. Almost need to remind yourself of the ABV on this one.
O - Never have been the biggest saison fan but overall this is a more than decent example. The beer is tangy, sweet and surprisingly drinkable considering the stats. Love collaboration efforts and this one is for sure worth the price and hangover.
