3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
2016-07-27. Hazy golden orange body, near headless. Aroma of lambicy barnyard funk, straw. 7+ Flavour is interesting, light barnyard funk, pleasant fruit notes, lemon, good amount of acidity throughout. Whispers of the saison make appearances but the overall impression alternates between a very nice blend of the two and a slightly watery lambic. 7++ Average bodied palate, low carbonation. Pretty nice despite some quirks. 7-8/3/7-8/3/16 Bottle at Volo, Toronto.

Tap at Ale Arsenal. I kicked the keg....so this may be the best beer I have ever had free via that route. Pours a slightly hazy dark yellow, with a MASSIVE head [I mentioned that I blew the keg....so what else would you expect]. Overt tartness layers well with the earthy-dominated aroma. Solid and enjoyable.

Incredibly murky bronze colour with an extremely tiny head. Aroma is nutty, lemony, with some sweat and barnyard funk. Smooth sour taste that doesn’t pucker your face dry. Velvety finish for a sour.
