Notes/Commercial Description:
The only beer that combines the hop forward Five with barrel aging, Saison du Blodget has a historic profile melding tartness and bitterness. The wild aroma is rooted in the mix of hop notes and spent peaches from the Fantasia, which also contribute unique yeasts and bacteria.

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.
