Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

11.2 oz(what happens to the .8 I wonder) bottle from CM poured into a tulip.

A - Brown, semi transparent, with black overtones. Pours with little head and a thin lace.

S -Vinegar, apple cider, lemons.

T- Yowsa. Like drinking Apple Head candies. Or Sweetarts. You also get some mild yeast and malt notes and a somewhat bready (and sour, of course) finish.

M - The mouthfeel is interesting. There is a very tart, dry, prickly finish. Heft is medium.

O - Second sour of the day (sandwiched around a Ruination), so my palate has been tested today. Also happened to my second sour (that I recall) ever, so still adjusting to this (very) different style. I enjoyed this one, similar to Monk's Flemish, but this one seemed to have more in your face tartness-wise. Silly indeed.

This is a saison? Really? Seems totally Flemish to me.

Pours dark and clear. Minimal head. Mild sour tones on top of a fairly heavy cherry character. Mild vinegar edges. Totally Flemish style. And I like it. Kind of an easy going funky beer. Probably would be a good beginner's sour.

11.2 ounce bottle. Served in a Unibroue tulip, the beer pours a dark reddish/brown color with an inch and a half light tan head. Head retention is good, and there's a lot of lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like dark fruit (cherries, raisins), vinegar, tart apples, caramel, and some earthiness. Taste is pretty much just like the aroma, but there's also some red grapes, and bready malt noticeable too. Nice mix of sweet and tart flavors. I wouldn't call this sour, but there's enough tartness to make it interesting. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's a bit syrupy with low/moderate carbonation. I liked this, worth a try if you've never had it before. $3.99 a bottle.
