look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: Luminescent candy orange with a creamy white head that stays.

S: Cherries, grapefruit, orange peel, lemon zest, wet grass.

T: Very dry and tart up front. Notes of cherries and lemons blend with a citrus pithiness. Oak presence is well integrated throughout, accompanied by a clean finish with modest funk.

M: light bodied and well carbonated; very refreshing.

O: Wonderful saison. Dry, tart and mildly funky with a gorgeous estery palate.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Yellow with a light orange tint in color; very hazy making the beer opaque. Nice rich 1+ finger cream colored head when poured that died down leaving a coating of foam on the surface of the beer and some sticky lacing on the sides of the glass. Mild slightly funky, yeasty aroma typical of a sour. Delicious light sour flavor; starts with a mild citrusy flavor that moves quickly to a mild sour green apple flavor and ends with a slightly dry, tart finish. Extremely refreshing. Light to medium body, mild carbonation (small bubbles); very smooth mouthfeel. Overall an excellent light sour. I wanted a 2nd glass immediately upon finishing the bottle!
