Reviewed from notes

A: Pours a hazy pale golden color, almost creamy in appearance, with almost no white head.

S: Tart funk, lactic sour, wheat, and something just a little rustic.

T/M: Light body with moderate carbonation and a drying finish -- the mouthfeel of this beer is its best feature. Just a little oily and very coating, despite the light body. Flavor is very clean with hints of tart fruits, perhaps cherry; a slight earthy funk; and citrus juices, orange among them.

O: Nice but not great. Honestly, this is on the lower end of the SARA brews I've tried in terms of my enjoyment. It's clean, light, drying, and very drinkable, so it's a fine example of its style. That said, New Glarus just does it better as far as I am concerned, and they do it for 1/4 the price and in a much more accessible way. I'm glad I got to try this, but would not go out of my way to get bottles unless they were for someone else.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

750 mL bottle poured into a taster.

Appearance - Hazy yellow orange. Small white head. No real retention.

Smell - Gritty and grainy. Very acidic. A little bit of barnyard.

Taste - Very tart. Citrus. Reminiscent of a berliner. Grainy wheat and malt. Not much like a saison but it's good.

Mouthfeel - Very light and crisp. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Pretty good. Nothing like a saison though.
