Had this beer at a fantastic gastro pub in Cambridge MA. Don't want to mention the name because I don't think they are technically supposed to sell it.
Ap: Orange/redish color. Nice big head that lingers.
Ar: Lots of citrus mixed in with that classic Saison peppery yeast smell.
T: Fantastic! Light and crisp citrus flavor, with peppery notes, a little bit of hop bitterness and more tartness than I was expecting. Lots of floral notes mixed throughout.
M: effervesent - monderate to high carbonation. very crisp.
O: a fantastic Saison. Has much of that traditional saison quality, with a bit of new influence mixed in. Extremely refreshing, crisp beer. Would absolutely drink this over and over again.

A- Pours a clean lemon color with bright golden accents shimmering in the light. A formidable white head of about 2 fingers lingers for just a bit. Lacing does more than its share to coat the edges.
s- Some musky, funky notes accompanied by the lime and cracker like malts. Slightly herbal/floral and dense pulp character. More delicate than aggressive on the nose.
T- Dang...this thing shot off in a whole different direction that I was expecting. Much more intense flavor profile than the nose led me to believe. Earthy malts come at me first, then give way to a powerful bouquet of citrus waves that never want to end, and I'm glad they don't. So much lemon and lime. Salty sour tartness is so spot on!
M- Mild and refreshing. Perfect for chilling on a hot summer day here in KC. The tartness is mouthwatering with each sip, but the abv doesn't make you pay for succumbing to its demands to keep tipping it back.
O- While I wasn't blown away by the aroma, the flavor unreal. Possibly the best sour saison I have had.
$12 for a 750 ml bottle
