The appearance is bright and bubbly with a fizzing froth. Lots of tangy Apple, pear and cider like tones hit the nose but the flavor is more tangy and a touch less flavorful. Plenty of sprite orchard fruitiness just subdued a little. This is very good, plenty tasty and an easy sweet treat.

Pours a bit cloudy, not very exciting.

Smell is very nice - big fruit, strong sage, rotting citrus, strong grapefruit/orange peel along with - sir funk.

Taste is dry, funky, off sour - lovely saison - barrel Oakey wine notes.

A solid sour saison, great mix of yeasty funk , hops and big fruit.

Deep golden with amber highlights. Honestly the color reminds me of apple juice. Thin layer of minuscule bright white head. A bit hazy with very vibrant carbonation bubbles throughout. I get pears,apples ,earthiness,and peppery notes with an overall sweetness in the aroma. Mouth is highly carbonated,crisp,and refreshing. The front of the palate is sweet with pears and green apples. I get a bit of tartness in the finish from the souring bacteria which is a good contrast.
