Bomber from hoppymeal. This beer caught me off guard. Pours hazy yellow with a big, fizzy white head, fades quickly though, no lace. Smells dry and sour, a bit of vinegar and barnyard, some citrus. Tastes sour as well obviously. Vinegar, hay and some fruitiness and some dry grains toward the finish. Complex, unexpected for a "Saison". Light, dry body with vibrant, fizzy carbonation.
