4.1/5  rDev +2.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Brought back from San Antonio business trip. Poured into a tulip.

As the label indicates, this is a sour farmhouse, and I agree. Its good, but it certainly pushes the style envelope too far and makes it difficult to rate to the style in which is categorized. Not the prettiest of beers. Somewhat reminiscent of a wheat beer. Smells like a saison but tastes like a sour. In my opinion a unique aspect of this beer is the combination of tartness with high carbonation, which, at least at first, can make for a beer that BITES. A beer that upon first taste I thought might be a drain pout, but no, it grew on me. 4

A – Pours a hazy pale orange with a white fluffy two-finger head, good carbonation, head dissipates quickly to a constant thin layer, some minimal lacing. 3.75

S – Funk, a bit of spiciness, very little citrus/fruitiness. 4

T – This beer is tart beginning to end. Some maltiness that balances out the tartness. A faint saison sweet orange citrusiness behind the sour. Certainly higher sour/tartness than would be in a normal “to style” saison. 4.25

MF – Medium bodied, dry finish, sharp. No lasting aftertaste. Some creaminess as well. 4

4.01/5  rDev 0%
look: 3.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from the bottle into a flared wine glass.

Dull orange with little head off the pour. A fleeting white head soapy, with some snapping carbonation. Doesn't leave a collar either and leaves a somewhat cloudy body appearance.

Very impressive bouquet though. Malted white toasty bread, hints of tropical fruit and mild pepper quality. Slightly dry, with a good funky brett punch.

The brett on the palate is strong with this one. Big sharp funky qualities with large dryness. Hints of baked bread and moderate funky qualities, and a slight hotness. A good hint of fruit that comes somewhere between orange and tart apricot. Quite a good amount of hotness, but without the pepper quality coming on the yeast. Quenching good solid body, with a simple depth.

Overall a solid but somewhat hot saison, staying away from complexity and huge depth and major flavors. Solid.

This poured a light golden color with a generous cap of foam. I found esters dominating the aroma with notes of lemongrass and some tartness sneaking through. It tasted zesty like a peppery Belgian triple that met with some light funk notes. Delicious.

I really did not like this, but it was my first soul farmhouse ale. I guess I just don't like sours. I could not finish my glass. The other non-taste characteristics were nice which makes me think overall it's a good beer, it just wasn't for me. The color was a vibrant yellow-ish reminding me of not-quite-ripe peaches. and the head was snow-white. It looked really awesome.

Color- cloudy gold. Full head.

Aroma- hibiscus, dry dust, hint of lemon.

Taste- A flowery, wheaty sour ale. Reminds me of a dry, sour wit beer with hints of bitter dust. I'm a sour beer fan, but this is imbalanced.

Poured from 500 ml bottle into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass). Tasted June 2014.
