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!

LIGHT SOUR.

This saison pours a beautiful yellow color. It has barely any carbonation. I would say it was flat. Smells good, although it is not a pronounced smell. It is very subtle. I smelled a bit of that funky yeast, typical of saisons. Taste is good, although a bit flat again. I didn't taste much of the hoppy characteristic of the saison, but I did get the lambic taste. It is easy to drink, like all other saisons.

I think my bottle was a bit off, still it was a good saison. I'll seek it out again and update.
