4.39/5 rDev +3.3%
Batch 5 swing-top bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance: Beautiful thick, creamy and ridiculously persistent off-white head. The beer itself would best be described as hazy and apricot in color. Thick lacing coats the glass.
Smell: Lots of green apple. Seriously, LOTS of green apple. A hint of funkiness and brett. I love how this smells.
Taste: Pretty sour for a saison. I do get a lot of the green apple. A little bit of bready malts. A hint of bitterness on the finish. I do get a bit of farmhouse flavor, but it doesn't really taste a whole lot like a saison to me, but it's certainly a very tasty mild sour.
Mouthfeel: Very smooth. Light on the carbonation.
Overall: I like this a lot. Glad I bought a second bottle, which I might sit on a while. It's hard to consider this a saison but it was very tasty. Definitely worth seeking out.

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.
