Wow! First sip reminded me of a Flemish sour. Definetly a distinct tartness with a crisp finish. Nice hint of guava and some other tropical flavors. Looks like a wheat beer in the glass.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
c/o a Trade with Jimsal27. Thanks again!
Aroma - a champagne like quality, that Brettanomyces yeast and it’s sort of all there was. Deep underneath it is a honey like aroma
Appearance - body color is an orange amber; liquid is cloudy with some nucleation as well; this beer has a 1" off-white head
Taste - taste is a little honey, Brettanomyce yeast, some honey-like drupe fruits
Palate - body is light to medium; texture on the thin side; carbonation is very lively; the finish is rather abrupt.

The addition of guava to the farmhouse ale gives it a sour, fruity characteristic. Easy to drink and delicious.

Poured from a tap. Hazy yellow color, medium white head. Nice lip smacking tart sour taste with a very clean finish and a cedar accent.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 27, 2014 Pours a cloudy amber with a big fluffy white head. Spicy notes on the aroma and bready yeast taste with a slight tartness. This is a great and unique saison/farm house. I prefer their old more sour recipe and I’m glad they still produce the sour versions of this.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
No bottle date. Said to be older, sour version.
pours a nice hazy apricot ale with three finger of white foam. This falls and when I breath in, I get guava, guava, banana, and some sweet alcohol (like an amaretto). Nice nose. Really nice nose.
Bitch be tart, nice. Some lemon, guava, hints of hay and yeast. I really like this beer and feel ill equipped to give the flavor justice. The beer was initially a little hi in carb, but fell to appropriate.
Delicious beer. I heard they took the sour/funk from this. Too bad.

Bottle: burnt sunburst, completely opaque with a largely volatile head; off-white & huge with good retention, leaving semi-decent lacing behind. Aroma has notes of sweet & bitter fruit... Guava is there, but not in the quantity I had hoped for. Intense pungent bitterness, very grassy with lighter tropical notes in the back... The tropical essence of the beer gives off a pear & mango vibe, too. Very grassy, earthy. Tastes has some introduced spices; clove, coriander, orange peel, almost like you’d expect in a witbier. Light fruity guava & tropical mango flavors mesh with a huge barnyard character... Lots of wet cork, wet wood, damp cellar, & musk. Almost Brett-like but even a bit funkier, not much in the way of tartness. Nice, funky farmhouse ale, but I would have liked a more explosive guava character.
