Bottle: Poured a hazy dirty light yellow color ale with a big white bubbly head with minimal retention and not much lacing. Aroma of tart apple with some spicy peppery yeast is quite strong. Taste is a very unique mix between some tart apple notes with a strong spicy yeast strain and with some very high carbonation. Body is quite full with strong carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Interesting though not something I would rink everyday. Almost closer to Champagne then beer.

A: Pours light blonde and hazy with a very carbonated bubbly white head, reminds me of a soda

S: The apples are definitely there along with the funkiness from the belgium yeast, light grassy smells

T: The mouthful is very carbonated and you get the sourness from the apples upfront followed by the the funkiness.

Overall a good offering from epic, the sourness and the apples are in full effect, everything lines up perfect.

3.74/5  rDev +6.6%

A: Slightly cloudy, straw colored beer. Not as much head as I would expect, but what there is is off-white.

S: There is an amazing crisp, sourness to the aroma as soon as it comes out of the bottle. When you get closer the predominant aroma is yeast. Also some grains. Not super complex, the yeast and apple overpower.

T: Wow, an interesting blend between a saison and a sour. Punch of sour apple upfront, almost puckering, and then it fades into an earthy yeastiness. There is a biterness to the finish that balances out the sour. The lingering taste on the palette is green apple.

M: Light and crisp, a little sticky in the back of the throat.

O: Not an everyday type of beer, but really interesting. A nice balance of sweet, sour and bitter.
