You get a slight tartness, which is needed with this saison. For me this beer was heavy on the carbonation, and foam. In the smell I got the normal earthy qualities. I got a lemongrass smell, and I got the feel that this would be tart.

Real good profile.

A: Beer pours a cloudy golden body with an insane white head thats overly carbonated.

S: There is a nice subtle sourness, saison yeast and a faint bit of bitness.

T: slight tartness, not overpowering saison flavor and a fruity sweetness.

M: Thick carbonation and has a slight tingle of the tip of the tongue.

Bottled 9/26/13. Batch 99.

Pours a murky orange with a super foamy orange-white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Tiny particles of sediment are seen floating around in the beer after the pour. Smell is slightly sour with malt, grain, tropical fruit, earth, funk, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with slightly sour grain, earth, funk, and yeast flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of earth bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that still smells and tastes quite nice at almost a year of age.

Serving type: bottle.

Cloudy golden pour with a large frothy white head and lots of carbonation. Aroma of yeast, pepper and light lemon. Taste is somewhat peppery upfront with a good bit of yeast as well. Nice sour flavor comes out as the beer warms with flavors of lemon, oak and earth. Finishes with a nice sour lemon taste. Very interesting and complex.
