Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: OWSLEY069 on 07-10-2013

Silly Sour is a unique brew that blends 13% of traditional dark Saison with 87% of soured ale. The delicate malt notes from the Saison manage to break through the striking green apple sourness upfront and than give a way to a finishing jolt of lactic sourness! At an approachable 5.5% Alc. by Vol. this chestnut colored brew adds a new page in the history of Saison brewing.

Sweetness counteracts the sour quite a bit. So, if you're new to sours, this might be a good one to start with, as it's not as difficult a taste to acquire as some others.

Is it just me, or is there a noticeable flavor of red kool-aid? Tell me I'm wrong.

Look: Chestnut brown with flashes of red in color; translucent. Pours with a small white head (less than 1 finger) that dissipates immediately leaving scant traces of foam on the surface of the beer. Looks like a typical high volume commercial dark beer; good but nothing special.

Smell: Sweet, scent of grains, slight funky/sour aroma.

Taste: Sweet and sour taste, a bit of grain. I found it unique and like it. Very good.

Fell: A little syrupy; thin to medium in body; low carbonation.

Overall: Very good. I found this refreshing, with unique flavor and would gladly drink this again. I liked that this comes in a small bottle.
