4.33/5 rDev +6.9%
Pour is deep golden amber with a tight white head. Nose has a great oak presence, huge bright peach, and notes of dusty brett. Taste is even brighter, fruits are huge, tropical fruits with a good bit of peach, brett is quite clean and citrusy with notes of leather and dust. Carbonation is strong, body is very delicate and soft. Flavors are extremely juicy and bright.

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.
