Golden color, not a big head. Can't quite tell if it's murky or if my glass is just fogged up. A light, dry beer, with some fruitiness. Not quite sour, but enjoyable for me, a big fan of sours and saisons.

Bright but cloudy tangerine orange with a soft white half finger fuzzy head.

Smell is drainage ditch funk and peach.

Taste is really tart lemon, peach, Smarties, strawberry, and grape candy. That's one hell of a boisterous blonde.

Funky nose, juicy fruit flavors, champagne bubble carbonation. Lingering funky ripe fruit. One of my favorite SARA beers. Truly top notch.
