750 mL bottle poured into a wine glass.

Appearance - Murky and hazy orange. Medium white head. Lots of lacing and a thick collar.

Smell - Stone fruits and some citrus. Some wine barrel. Lots of yeast. A bit of a mineral character.

Taste - Stone fruit and more wine flavor. Pale malt is stronger here. Yeasty and pushing a bit sweet before the finish. Mineral character is strong and it has kind of a rotten fruit flavor in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Not as light as I was expecting. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Not as impressed as I normally am by Side Project saisons. It's got a weird aftertaste. (626 characters)

Cloudy pear like color lends to the overall experience as pear seems prevalent. The aroma had orchard pear and Apple with a cidery sour and peppery scent. The flavors followed with pear and Apple but the sour is more balsamic and white wine. Though sour and tart the feel is smooth and seems more like a cider. Very enjoyable beer. (331 characters)

This beer had a very prominent nose and flavour of fresh hose water. Shared this bottle with 5 others who all got that same strange flavour. That being said, this was still a very nice beer and the flavour, although odd, was not off-putting. (244 characters)
