Shared 11.2 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a white head. Aroma is white wine, musty, sour fruits, and spice. Taste is white wine, tart fruits, spice, balsamic vinegar, wood notes, and barnyard. Sour, but not excessively so. Has some sweetness. Light-bodied. Quite refreshing.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
1/2 Pint on tap @ Barcelona Beer Festival. Pours intense golden with medium white head. Nice lacing. Both aroma and taste are lemon, caramel and tropical fruits. The aftertaste is moderately sour and bitter. Medium body, perfect carbonation. It actually deviates towards a Lambic-Gueuze. Very well balanced and tasty, well done.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A solid saison that has a nice tartness to it with some light spice, fixes the Sassoon craving, but also wanted a litter more earthy, or hay barnyard to it.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Hazy orange color. Good and fizzy. Aromas of mustard, spices, and other weird funkiness. Great complex flavor with touches of bubble gum, sour strawberries with some good bitterness in the end. Nice malt underneath. Excellent beer. One of my favorite saisons.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Golden copper in color with a thin white lacy head and decent retention. Aroma is moderately ttart and complimented by lemon and a mild funk. Taste is initially very tart but quickly fares to a nice balance between tart and sweet. Delicious!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
My Bottom Line:
Dill-like herbs ride fruity tartness in this funky yet somewhat charming rustic brew.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam tops the cloudy blond.
-Palate feels natural and is rather comfortable too.
-The acetic acidity takes some getting used to.
-Hard to believe there are no actual herbs or spices used in this one (as the commercial deScription claims).

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This cloudy gold colored beer has a slightly sour aroma and slightly wheaty flavor and mild spicy note which is very subtle. I really like the sour it isn't too strong but not too boring.
