750ml bottle, @ 4.5% ABV - dry-hopped with Mosaic, a tart...oh, hell, they had me at Mosaic!

This beer pours a slightly hazy, very pale golden straw colour, with two fingers of puffy, finely foamy, and fizzy bone-white head, which leaves some random coral atoll upshot lace around the glass as it lazily recedes.

It smells of funky yeast, a twinge of dank and vegetal pine resin, some buttery lactic acridity, weak grainy pale malt, lemon rinds, subdued tropical fruit notes, salted white crackers, and some plain earthy, leafy, and floral green hop bitters. The taste is gritty and grainy pale and wheat malt, soured milk, a bit of earthy funk, lemon oil, a growing fresh fleshy tropical fruitiness, and more tame weedy, leafy, and herbal hoppiness.

The carbonation is quite fervent in its tacky and at times aggressive frothiness, the body medium-light in weight, and more or less smooth, surprisingly, the various beasties off elsewhere peddling their wares, or something. It finishes just a tad off-dry, the lingering tropical fruit esters egging on the last of the already thin malt.

Overall, a nicely-rendered, traditional tart Saison, if one bolstered by some sexy New World hops. Hey, the moderate fruity character just makes this more refreshing and drinkable than it (presumably) was in the first place, and very worthy of checking out, if the dear shelf tag doesn't scare you - though if you're a sour fan, you probably have come to terms with that, by now.
