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.
