look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Batch #45 poured from a 22oz bottle into a tulip
A: Light golden color with a 1+ finger head that quickly settles
S: Green apple, a sour note, Belgian yeast and light malt
T: Sour green apple, Belgian yeast and light malt. LIke the nose. But each very individual, not integrated
M: Light-bodied, sour
O: This can't decide if it wants to be a cider or a beer. It has components of each, all of which are tasty but it just doesn't all fit into a coherent blend

22 ounce bottle split between a pair of large snifters. Release #41, SLC#1660. Can't read the code printed on the bottom.

Pours cloudy yellow with a small white head, not a great deal of carbonation. Smell is nice. Green apples, funk, greens, slight flower.

Taste is apple juice, tropical sour.

Mouthfeel is creamy and nice. Overall, pretty good.

Clear pale yellow/straw colored pour with a minimal head. Aroma has a good bit of yeast and spice and a little grain. Flavor is a very basic saison...yeast and clove are the dominant flavors. There's also a very light tart apple flavor and a touch of ginger. Finishes with a lingering clove flavor. Expected more.
