"U’d venture a guess that this golden hued ale is there first run at a sour. Definitely needs time to become wild, as it was more perfumey, fruity slightly dry saison than anything else. Not bad at all - just not very wild."

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very bright tasting. After having quite a few tasters, this woke up my taste buds. A slight funk to it with a little bit of stone fruit notes. A little viscous at the back of the throat adds some spice notes. Quite nice.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A cloudy pale amber. Light aromas that are fregrant with yeast. It starts off light with a fruity tartness that melds into dryness created by all those hops. A perfect blend of hops and sour.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Haven Gastropub in Pasadena. Sparkling clear yellow pour with thicker white foam. Fresh herbal saison nose. Huge sheets of lacing. Lemon sorbet nose with biscuit and fresh herbs. More of a traditional saison nose. Taste is dry, herbal bitter, lemon juice. Clean and refreshing. Wouldn’t call it funky, sour or wild though. Solid saison. Didn’t even pick out the Brett.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Brix Sunset Beach. Pours a cloudy golden color with a white head. Fruit esters dominate the nose. Apple, banana, and pear. Peppery, earthy funk, grass, and a dry malt profile. The flavor is dry and peppery, despite the fruit/esters. Lots of banana, apple, and pear. Light citric tartness, a subtle funk, and some yeast.
