No date, but it's about 3 months old.

A: Pours a golden amber-ish color? Clear with a big frothy off-white head. Great head retention with an island of foam. Big, heavy fluffy chunks of lacing everywhere.

S: Very citrusy. Mangos and oranges I would say? A bit of spicy clove and black pepper but the citrus really shines here. Refreshing aroma.

T: Whoa. Very tart. Sour, really. Kind of a bitter orange peel/sour citrus and sour... melons? Big lactic sourness in the finish. Mild crackery malt. Very dry finish to go with all the sourness. Lingering tartness/bitterness forever. Light cloves and black pepper but mostly overpowered by the sour citrus flavors. Maybe get some sour apple now that I think of it?

M: Light, dry and tart.

O: I think this may be the sourest saison I've ever had. Not really that funky, just straight up wild ale sourness. I don't mind some funkiness or tartness but this is a sour bomb. Decent but a bit over the top for my tastes.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Pale orange. Nice head. Nice surface foam.

Smell - Funky and citrusy. A little tropical. A bit of yeast. some Belgian sugars.

Taste - Very hoppy. Otherwise kinda bland. Yeasty again. Pale malts and leas funk. A little bitter.

Mouthfeel - medium body. Otherwise a nice saison.

Overall - Decent, but nothing better than what my local shop has.
