This is a good beer, average saison. While nothing pops in and says, "hey, gag on this!" nothing says the opposite, "wow, get a load of me!"

The sour apple designation is the main problem. I get very little apple, and no sour. I hate that it affects my rating, but as an advocate this is a concern.

The body was a bit thin, too. Under carbonated and lacking some spices. Still, nothing was bad and I'd choose this over BMC 101 times out of 100

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.
