Poured 750ml into Duvel tulip. A pale and clear gold with a faint soap bubble head. You can tell that the carb is very low. A tart and lemony aroma with some melon and spearmint notes. A nice herbal farmhouse smell. It has more tartness than I expected and a pleasant watermelon flavor mixed lightly with the other herbs. Very low card and a tart dry feel. Interesting and easy drinking Farmhouse that would be nice on any warm autumn day.

From spring 2014 review:

750ml, blend 1, 2/20/14
Jester King stem

A: Nice hazy bright yellow color with a hint of blush pink hiding in there. Didn't get a ton of head on this. Loose bright white head that forms a collar.

S: Pulling the watermelon even thought people say they can't. Nice hints of spearmint. Not so much the lavender or rosemary. Dry farmhouse character.

T: Tip of the tongue getting that bright spearmint meshing with other herbal notes. Then some refreshing watermelon and tartness from the bacteria used. Not sour, just the right amount of sharpness. Finish is dry and refreshing. Really like this one.

M: Lighter side of medium. It's not as carbonated as their other sour saisons, so might just be new batch issues.
