Bottle: Poured a pale yellow color ale with a large pure white foamy head with great retention and good lacing. Aroma of light tart notes with hay undertones is pretty enjoyable. Taste is a mix of light tart notes with some hay flavours, some rustic malt with a dry finish. Body is about average with good carbonation. I know this stuff is not cheap but it is quite enjoyable with loads of flavours and great drinkability.

Sourness is fairly muted. High drinkability but lacking character and a bit watery.

Poured from a 750ml bottle, pkgd 010414.

Pours a hazy lemonade color with average head and decent retention. Aroma is acidic citrus fruit and floral. Flavor has refreshing lemon and a dry tart feel. Bit on toned in flavor but good pick i think though there are better sours out there.

A: A very light colored gold almost witbier like. One finger of creamy looking head. Carbonation is easily visible.

S: A touch of sourness is detectable in the aroma. Otherwise a touch peppery and maybe a bit citrusy and belgian in character.

T: Sourness is slight and a bit tart but comes through more as it warms. A little bit of light fruit esters ever so slightly poke their head. Green apples. Malt as well. There is a bit of displeasing graininess that I've experienced in some of my home brews which takes away from the beer a bit.

M: Spritzy and refreshing. Pretty light bodied and somewhat high carbonation.

O: A pretty decent beer and the first sour I've had made with Lacto. Good but expected it to be a bit more sour. I would never pay this price tag again ever though. A decent beer but nowhere close to the price IMO.

Special thanks to hoppypocket for including this as an extra in a recent trade.

A: Hazy pale wheat pour with fluffy off-white head which settles to a think cap with minimal lacing.

S: Wheat, yeasty bread, lemon, mineral notes and a light acidity.

T: Follows the scent with yeasty bread and wheat followed by dry mineralness and lemon juice. Clean and dry.

M: Light body, moderate carbonation. Light and thin texture.

O: Clean and refreshing this traditional saison is a perfect summer patio beer.
