look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours a ruby/burnt orange color with no head, no carbonation and no lace

Smell: Apple, pear and a touch of caramel

Taste: Tart fruit forward, with the apple and pear tones bringing along some underlying sweetness, as well; some oak and leathery character in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and still

Overall: Not what I was expecting at all; closer to a Flanders than a Saison; not an unpleasant taste but I am not sure that the brewer would be pleased with how the beer has developed

Totally and utterly flat. Not a single bubble. It smelled delicious and the flavors were nice, but the mouthfeel was horrible as a result of the horrible undercarbonation.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

A: Pours a dark reddish brown color with a fizzy light caramel colored head that recedes pretty quickly.

S: Light bread and caramel with a light underlying funk to it. Red apple and some toffee.

T: Bright and juicy with some red apple, green strawberry, apple cider spice and some lingering green apple tartness. Sort of a strange beer and nothing like I would expect from a Saison, but very good.

A: Dark amber, cider, opaque

S: Ripe apples/cider

T: Tart green apple, lychee, pear, a little funk from Brett?

M: lighter mouth feel than what I expected, smooth, very light carbonation

O: highly drinkable but very tart sour beer. Very cider like and not at all what I expected from a farmhouse/saison.

Exceeded expectations. Wonderfully fruity and lightly tart. Absurdly drinkable, no sign of abv. Not at all what the word "saison" brings to mind, but this is a style that's all over the board. Somewhat heavy with medium-low to medium carbonation (a plus in my book), flavors of green apples, pears, and peaches. A little bit of lychee nut flavor, which may be the brett. I've gotten similar flavors from homebrews with brett trois. Really just wonderful.
