look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Light golden color, perfectly clear body. Good head production for the style, and OK retention. Some yeast sediment in the bottle, but nothing unattractive.

Nice blend on the nose of sour, funky, and fruity notes, along with bubblegum-like Belgian yeast notes. Lemon, vinegar, hay, must.

Immediately funky up front, with an earthy and cheesy pungency. Only mildly sour, although that builds slightly mid-palate. Delicate sweetness on the back half, mingling with a lingering sourness through the finish. Notes of lemon, pear, leather, white grapes, pepper, earth, umami, lemongrass, hay, honey.

Lively and fizzy on the palate. Lively bite; refreshing. Very minor pucker.

A fantastic mixed culture rustic Saison.

Delightful little beer. Leans sour but not so far as to be difficult to drink. Lemony and peppery. Very easy and drinkable. A little expensive in Brooklyn but was worth it.

16.9 ounce bottle, 2018 vintage. Served in a teku, the beer pours a slightly hazy gold color with about an inch white head. Head retention is decent, and there's a small amount of lacing. I like the aroma, the brew smells like citrus (mainly lemon), grainy malt, green grapes, and some earthiness. It tastes like lemon, lemon peel, bready/grainy malt, earthiness, green grapes/grape skins, grassiness and a bit of stone fruit. Good amount of tartness. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it's smooth and easy to drink with a moderate amount of carbonation. I liked this, certainly worth a try especially if you like tart/sour brews. $7.99 a bottle.

Pale semi-clear gold with a tiger strip film.

Smell is lemon and orange rind with hay and salt.

Taste is also salty-sour of lemon, hay and grass. Lightly tart, some barnyard funk comes forward as it warms.

Big froth but light body finishing semi-wet to semi-dry.
