Poured from the bomber into a chalice.
Review from notes: January 17th, 2014.

A: Hazy copper. Nice white head.

S: Tart apple, some citrus. No malt or hops detectable.

T: Nice. Smooth front, somewhat bitter. Floral, but not overpowering.

M: Very bubbly on the tongue. Dry aftertaste.

O: Pretty good. Nice flavor. Not really a saison.

Color- sediment filled medium dark honey. Full head.

Aroma- funky yeasty sharp edge, floral notes, and hint of canned fruitcake.

Taste- awful! Either this was a bad bottle or this is the most awful Belgian Saisons ever. Tastes like soured milk and rotten fruit in a tin can. We had to pour out our glasses and the bottle after two small sips. Purchased locally at Twin Liquors in North Austin. Tasted on 5/31/14.

Bottle says “Belgian Style Saison” on the label. (So it’s clearly not Saison D’Austin. Apparently.)

I didn’t have any problems opening this, as I saw others had with different beers from South Austin.

This pours a dark straw-light amber with decent foam.

Smells like an estery-citrus blossom character. It’s undercut with a touch of honey.

The flavor is estery-sweet, with some floral clover-honey characters and a bit more sweet malt backing.

It’s not terrible but it’s not terribly interesting either.
