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.

Color- chestnut brown. Full head.

Aroma- apple and cherry pie.

Taste- starts dry and sour then turns grainy in mid-body, finishing sour apple with a bitter orange marmalade and tea leaf aftertaste.

Poured from 330 ml bottle into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass). Purchased from Whole Foods in Austin. Tasted July 2014.

Serving type: bottle

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.
