look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
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.
Serving type: bottle
