Hazy light-gold color with an off-white head.

Banana oil, yellow flowers, yeast, ground wheat, hay, citrus.

Citrus, pine sap, stirred yeast, mint.

Medium- bodied with a mild hop bitterness that leaves a very clean finish on the palate.

Really an odd beer. It wants to get there, but ends up being a shadow of the style.

What a weird beer. Never had anything like it. Pours a cloudy yellow, with thin white head. Solid lacing though. Aroma, some might call it convuluted, some might call it complex, I tend to lean towards the 'all over the place' descriptor. You get farmhouse, a perfumy kind of fruit, and brett moreso than specific gueuze lambic like sourness or fruit notes. Lots of white wine type grape and oak qualities in it as well. Seems like belgian yeast phenols at the same time as well.

Taste, sourness is much lighter than most gueuzes, again, this doesn't really seem to be a gueuze, but nonetheless, you call it that, its gonna be compared with all other gueuezes. The perfumy flowery funk isn't offensive, its like being in a garden.

I dunno, its kind of like its really good for a saison, underwhelming for a gueuze.

I had this beer among a number of sour beers at a sour beer event at Rattle N Hum in Manhattan. It was great to taste so many sour beers side by side and this one was somewhat middle of the road in comparison to many of the others, although it was still quite good.

Very light in color with an adequate amount of carbonation. Not a huge head but it did stick around for a while

Aroma was of oak as well as some of the sour quality was able to come through in the aroma.

Flavor was very well balance for the style with a good amount of sour, not too much, but it lacked in any sort of characteristic unique to this beer.

Overall a very good beer but difficult to judge on its own merits when it is next to a bunch of other sours.

On tap at the brewpub.

A- yellow gold, slightly hazy, has decent lacing and a good appearance.

S- fresh banana yeastiness, straw yeast, some malt in the background but mostly light with some floral character.

T- slight bitterness, subtle yeatiness, could be more flavour forward. Pretty respectable though.

M- pleasant, slight carbonation, refreshing and has a solid crisp finish.

Nice drinking saison, but far from the most interesting one I've tried, pleasant but not inspiring.
