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.
