Funky stuff! Sour, salty, and somewhat floral...

Pours an uninteresting pale amber, slightly cloudy, lots of carbonation but almost no head.

Smell is sea salt, malt, alcoholy sourness...a very good description of what's to come.

Taste is sour, salty, and yes, a little fruity floral like a farmhouse should be...it's like the illicit love child of a threescore between a gose, sour, and farmhouse ale.

Very crisp and drinkable. Will definitely have it again, just wish I had stumbled upon it in May and not September.

Hard to be objective since I’m not into the sour brews and this beer is down right pungent.
Had some nice characteristics, and I’d imagine that someone looking for a sour farm house - saison ale would enjoy this

I liked this a lot.. Sour punch finish preceded by an earthy saison base. I'm guessing the Cabernet barrel adds the sourness and it works here... I love the subdued tartness... Very tasty stuff..

Canned 6/17/16; drank 7/2/16 @ the Yarchives.

Cloudy yellow/orange appearance.

A violent pour yielded a big, noisy bright white head; frothy lace.

Banana, honeyed wheat, mild orange citrus & faint booze heat notes in the nose.

Medium mouthfeel.

Apple cider, banana & honeyed wheat flavors up front; mild lemon notes on the finish.

Mild, with some depth; I'd prefer more boldness but this wasn't bad at all.

12 oz serving tasted in a snifter from draught at Firkin on November 10, 2017. Tart farmhouse ale blended with 10% Cabernet barrel aged house saison. Very good.

I tried this beer at my boss' house. It poured a hazy yellow with white head that did not leave any lace. The scent had floral tones with ripe fruit. The taste leaned sour with tart cherry presence. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it was ok.

12oz can poured into a tulip. Pours a hazy pale golden with a fluffy eggshell white head that falls leaving nice retention and sticky lacing. There's minor sediment. The aromas have some hints of funk along with some yeasts and malts. The flavors seem to follow the nose. It's starts off tart and sweet, but becomes more balanced the more you get into it. Hints of vinegar and white wine. Some lemon and citrus in the finish. Alcohol goes unnoticed. Mouthfeel is on the lighter side of medium-bodied with moderate to carbonation. It's smooth and easy to drink.

This is a solid brew. It's unique for the style. It's refreshing and enjoyable stuff.

I bought this for the wrong reasons - the can was really cool. I still haven't figured out the cartoon, but it is fun trying. Oh, and the brew is pretty nifty too. I hope the others from this brewer are also good - I bought three.

It pours a cloudy yellow with smallish fizz. The rating is also for the can. The aroma is sweet flora yeasty, like a weisse but more delicate. The taste is mildly sour, yeasty, slightly malty (but light malts). No hops or bitterness and not very boozy. The aftertaste is fresh, tart and pleasant, and it lingers.

Recommended if you are into a tart more than sour wild ale.

Pours light hazy, yellow. Foamy, medium, white head fades fast.

Smells citrus, lemon, light grassy, plenty of tart fruit and other yeast funk notes.

Tastes light tart apple, citrus, yeast funk. Tartness fades quickly to a dry finish with light yeast hints and Orange peel. Medium body and fizzy higher carbonation.

I was somewhat surprised by this one. I've seen it on shelves for months now but my first time trying it, was not expecting it to be such a deep sour. Plenty of funk, and refreshing carbonation and feel to it. This is a wild ale I can anticipate enjoying in warmer months quite a bit. Wine and fruit salad notes come out from the barrel. Leaves the feel of a fizzy fruit candy. Dry finish leaves you satisfied - if you're looking for a mid range sour then you came to the right place.
