Barrel aged table strength saison? Pours a cloudy amber, one finger thick white head fades quickly to a thin ring. Smell: doughy, light stone fruit, woodsy, herbal and lemon notes. Taste: tart peach, spicy and herbal, lightly grainy backing, drying finish with light oaky aspect. Very enjoyable.

Extremely pale amber-tinted brew. Nice foam in the Gordon's thistle glass with a surplus of frothy carbonation.

Very light flavors and quite tart/sour. The malt has vanished and left a vinegary shadow. Lots of bitterish pepper that seems to increase with sipping. I wish there was a category for non-traditional sours, or else put this into the American Wild ale lineup. How do you compare this with such sensuous brews as Firestone Walker "Opal" and a hundred other fruity and zesty Saisons?

This is too much like a Belinerweiss to be reviewed adequately as a Saison. I also object to the price of this stuff. But if you're into trying sours, this is very approachable. From the 375 ml bottle purchased at Grapevine Liquors. Batch 10/2014.
