A: Slightly cloudy, straw colored beer. Not as much head as I would expect, but what there is is off-white.

S: There is an amazing crisp, sourness to the aroma as soon as it comes out of the bottle. When you get closer the predominant aroma is yeast. Also some grains. Not super complex, the yeast and apple overpower.

T: Wow, an interesting blend between a saison and a sour. Punch of sour apple upfront, almost puckering, and then it fades into an earthy yeastiness. There is a biterness to the finish that balances out the sour. The lingering taste on the palette is green apple.

M: Light and crisp, a little sticky in the back of the throat.

O: Not an everyday type of beer, but really interesting. A nice balance of sweet, sour and bitter.
