Picked this up at a great little beer store in Arlon, Belgium, Miorge Mihoublon. Hazy yellow-orange pour with a gorgeous three finger fluffy, meringue-like, pure white head with crazy retention and lacing. Really unique and complex nose with hints of lemon, green apples, barnyard, yeast, grass, and some subtle vinous notes. The taste is just as unique and complex with huge lemon up front, followed by hints of sour apples, tart citrus peel, grass, barnyard funk, grape skin, white pepper, subtle oak, and a nice white wine vinous character. The mouthfeel is tart and tangy, light bodied, with medium carbonation and just enough sweetness to allow a measure of balance, but it's definitely leaning to the sour side. Crisp and refreshing with a nice dry tangy finish. Overall, this is one unique Saison, that is, if that's indeed what it is. It's got all the great qualities of a Saison, perfectly meshed with the best qualities of a sour. No matter how you categorize it, it's an amazing beer!

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.
