4.04/5 rDev +14.8%
Appearance-Yellow to pale gold out of the glass with a foam that dissipates quickly.
Smell-The name is pretty self-explanatory. I get a lot of sour apples and not a whole lot else.
Taste-Sour apple, bitter stone fruit.
Mouthfeel-Good light body and a long finish.
Overall-If I'm drinking beer on a hot day, it needs to be something like this.

This pours a crystal clear golden straw - quite pale! I'm not used to my saisons being this clear. It appears very much like an unsherried single malt that has not been inflicted with caramel colouring.
The smell is festive and wonderful - heavy clove notes, lots of tart green apple. Cinnamon.
The taste is similar - the apple is really quite sour, not funky at all, just acidic and very tart. Clove, cinnamon are there from the start and the ginger spiciness really comes through towards the finish.
I really quite like the festive spice blend, strong sour apple notes, and saison body and yeast profile. The flavours are pretty intense though and I wouldn't drink this regularly for that reason - very nice once and a while though.
