A- Pours a very hazy and deep gold in color. The head that forms is pretty big, as the beer was fairly active coming out of the bottle. Retention and lacing are both really awesome. The color of this beer is really unique, as it is hazy and really changes tones depending on the light, from dull copper to brilliant orange.

S- Starts off slightly to moderately tart then transforms from there. The acidic and slightly fruity tartness changes to a sort of musty and yeasty scent towards the middle and end of the drink. Really starts to smell like Saison de Rouge towards the end with more of a saison and hops scent presence. Hops are not strong or bitter, but more spicy and contributes to the musty scent a little.

T- Starts off with a moderate dose of sour flavor right up front. Tartness is more similar to lambic than a tart saison in nature, being more citrus-like and acidic. Moves on toward a more traditional saison flavor of grain and yeast from the tartness, although the tartness is always in the background of this beer. Musty with some grain and the underlying tartness in the middle of the drink. The end of the drink is more spicy with a slight hint of hops bitterness. Lingering tartness is left on the tongue.

M- Highly carbonated and pretty slick on the palate. Not too heavy considering the amount of grain in this one. Tartness slows the drinking down a little, but the deliciousness keeps you coming back for more.

Overall, Cory once again made a tremendous beer. I wish I had another one to see where this one goes over time. Incredibly complex and delicious on the whole!
