Poured from a 750ml bottle into a Crooked Stave tulip.
Pours a clear golden/amber with no head or signs of carb. Smell is very geuze like. Lemon, green apple, grapes, oak, vanilla, and light peachy stone fruit. Taste is much of the same flavors of the aroma but with that great oaky, lemony, crooked stave funk. Very oaky. feel is very low carbonation with a medium sourness. Crisp and easy to drink with a lingering mouth watering sourness.

Overall this is a great beer and I'm glad to have tried it. Oak forward sour saison with qualities of a fine geuze.

12.7 oz bottle. Pours clear golden orange with a fizzy white head that completely disappears.

The aroma is acidic brett with some tropical fruit.

The flavor is sweet tart and sour fruits with earthy brett. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, tastes great, but a little under-carbonated.

A - Light murky apricot, low head, some cling.

S - Barnyard, funky, malt takes a back seat but inviting.

T - Astringent, funky, harsh, tart, nice.

M - Good carb, sweeter than thought, nice balance.

O - I would have a few of these without tiring. Nice offering.
