12 oz. can, no canning information. Somehow my first beer review from Whiner Beer Co., surprising, since I'm pretty sure i've had this beer and their Miaou before also.

Poured into a Piraat snifter.

A -Pours a pale hazy yellow body. Hazy but it has some clarity. About two fingers of tightly packed bubbles for a head, recedes to about a finger's worth. Leaves some big strands of lacing. Looks pretty appealing. (Second pour is much hazier, more sediment, with much less clarity).

S - Bright, citrusy, saison yeast. Smells mildly tart and funky, but the qualities from the citrus keep it based. Smells crisp, you can almost smell the carb. Notes of pink peppercorn exist. Floral, with some alcohol esters, and notes of freshly squeezed lemons and lemon zest.

T - Crisp, juicy, mildly tart, with a fruity lemony finish. Not a huge flavor profile on this one, it's pretty simple, but it's hitting the spot for me.

F - Feel is smooth, crisp, clean. Moderate tart / funk leads to a dry finish. This stuff is super drinkable for 6.4% abv, this entire time i was drinking it, I imagined it was closer to 5.0%.

A nice beer from Whiner Beer Co. I look forward to reviewing more beers from them, I should try to seek out a pack of Miaou next.

I tried this beer by accident in Nashville. It is by far the best beer I have ever tasted! I live in Maryland and cannot find it anywhere. I’ll have to get it shipped.

12oz can. Poured out a slightly cloudy, golden yellow color with a small, white head of foam. It left minimal lacing on the glass. It smelled of white wine, caramel, lemon and wheat. Nice tart lemon taste with sweet caramel and a subtle oak/vanilla flavor.

Admittedly my first new Saison in awhile.

Pours modestly hazed light gold with limited head but decent lacing.

Aromas are pretty solid. Pale wheat malt, spicy yeast, funk, floral, oak.

Sweet pale malt on the tip of the tongue accompanied by some clove. Midstream is yeast, white stone fruit, sour wheat, green apple, cherry. The finish is quite funky with more tartness, white pepper and a touch of warming alcohol. Pretty well balanced, although maybe a touch sweet-ish. Not positive on that.

Medium bodied. Outstanding carbonation. Not crisp, but it has a pleasantly brief drying finish.

Pretty darn good saison.

Taste: crisp, semi sour, apple cider, apple vinegar acids, bright, white grapes, clear finish. Fruity sour, cider, some breadiness to the nose. Gold color hue, clear at first, wild yeast mage for a super tall foamy white head. Medium body. 20 IBUs

No dating on the 12 ounce can.

It pours a hazy orange yellow with a finger of foam, and some nice lacing.

First thing I pick up in the smell is cloves, followed by coriander, a very earthy musty aroma, and some Brett.

The taste varies from the smell quite a bit. I get the cloves, I get some salt, definitely earthy musty, light Brett and light tartness. It IS wild after all. I reckon that the flavours meld pretty well.

Low end of medium bodied, pretty lively carbonation.

Bought in a mixed 6pack. I believe that would be my preference.
