On tap at Birch. I enjoyed most of BFM's offerings quite a bit, including this one. If you don't care for Saison's or sours, this may not be for you. But if you like these styles, this gives a pretty cool twist. Lightfarmhouse ale with a cool blend of sour. The brewery is awesome. I recommend sour lovers trying everything they can get their hands on. Jerome at BFM is a funny and cool guy too.

A: Glowey straw gold beer. Giant cream colored head. Sticks to the glaass like cream cheese cake frosting. Big clumpy goodness.

S: Aroma reminds me of a more tart orval. Sweet dandelions, warm summer farmy smells, soft orangy citrus, wild stinky yeast, very floral.

T: Very dry, floral, puckering lemon rind tart, sweet crackery breadiness. Moderately acidic. Nicely done.
