Popped the top, and an initial gush threatened to over pour the top, but I managed to get it poured into the glass, which resulted in a large head, though it quickly faded. Very pale beer, cloudy. The aroma is very sour, moderately funky.

The taste is excellent... I wasn't expecting this good I admit. It's quite tart but not unpalatably so--in fact it is right at the really refreshing level. Lots of yeasty fruitiness (without any hint of sweetness), and a nice underlying brett character. Very dry finish, with a lingering brett aftertaste.

And such a beer comes from over the red river, out of Oklahoma?? I'm pretty surprised. Excellent beer.

16.9 oz. bottle poured into tulip

L: yellow-orange, a bit lighter/paler than gold; huge white head, well over 2 inches, very fluffy and not super thick; not much sticking or lacing. not 100% clear but much more clear than other saisons I've tried ... cloudy but about 80% see-through (I didn't pour the full bottle in but drank the last inch or so in case it was all yeast)

S: super sour ... smells like unsweet apple cider, the homemade hard stuff ... very acidic/citrusy but with a hard sourness to it all. could be fooled into thinking this was a very dry white wine.

T: follows the nose pretty closely with perhaps a pinch more sweetness to it. but it's not sweet, very tart and white wine-like

F: super drinkable, almost too much so. if this were 9% or more ABV, it would be outright dangerous -- at 7%, it's still very deceiving because it feels light ... loads of carbonation

O: this one probably hits my tart/sour limit without crossing over ... it's easy to drink, has just enough sweetness to it to help a non-saison fan like me handle it, and overall, I feel like I'm getting my money's worth. it also smells and tastes like the authentic thing -- no crazy additives or anything extra to spice it up. it's just beer farmhouse style.

Pours a muddy yellow. You can smell the sourness immediately. Earthy citrus aromas that define the saison style. The flavors are fairly muddled. Again, earthy citrus. Pepper. Tart tropical fruit. Prickly carbonation complement the tart flavors perfectly.

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
