33cl swing top bottle served in my Treebs branded tulip.
A: Pours a hay orange color with a thick 2 fingers of pure white head forming on the pour. The retention on the head is great as it is heavy and thick Sticky and clumpy lace is left down the entire glass.
S: Oaky with a nice wine profile. Light, fruity and grapey with a sweet malt profile. The flavors blend nicely together with a body of yeast that provides a funk and dryness.
T: The saison style comes out more in the taste. Dry yeast with some stone fruit and a little cracker sweetness from the malts. The oak barrel comes back on the back end with some wine, red grape and a little fruity sweetness. Mild tartness.
M: Light bodied with a medium carbonation level. A creamy mouthfeel with a sweet finish.
O: Pretty nice overall. Balanced with a nice wine oak barrel presence. Would have liked a little more tartness.

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!
