Bottom line: this is an ok Saison. My only problem is that the description is nowhere close to how the beer actually tastes.
There's absolutely zero sour and there's not much of any apple flavor, either.
Tastes like a straight-up farmhouse Saison to me.
Not saying to pass on this one, but don't expect any acidity or tart flavor.

On tap at The Pint in West Lafaytte, IN.
Bit of a limp pour, for a saison. Dark gold with a small head.
Smells... pretty good! Phew. I get scared with American saisons. Even excellent brewers routinely fuck these up. The apple nodes dominate, perhaps deftly covering up any imperfections in the yeat profile, but there's still a decent kick of yeast spice near the back end.
Tastes a little better than it smells. Tart apples, spicy yeast. The pallet is simple but well balanced, and it makes for a remarkably sessionable high-ABV beer.
