3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bridging the gap between saison and sour, this is a well rounded and unique beer. Smells almost like the duchess. Sour taste leads into light hop, very pleasant and lively. Not too many signs of sweet, but not strong bitter- dry finish.

375 mL bottle shared by my friend Scott. Thanks! Pours a hazy gold with a thin frothy white head. Good head retention. Aroma of funky, earthy notes, mild must and pale malt. The taste is pepper, funk, earth, spice, apple, pale malt. Medium bodied, high carbonation, lingering tartness. Nice beer.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Appearance: Pale straw gold color, hazy, with a fluffy white head.
Aroma: Very musty barn scent, old hay, souring fruit.
Taste: Sour and tart but "middle of the road" in strength. Tastes very much like it smells, musty old hay. There is a light sweet wheat flavor in there. It is very good with a lot of complex flavors. There is a spicy hop aftertaste that is awesome.
Palate: The mouthfeel on this is awesome. It is just tart enough without being puckering. Great carbonation volume but be careful when you open the bottle.
Overall: I had this both on tap and in the bottle. It was more tame in the bottle, possibly because of more conditioning in the bottle, but it really helped mellow the flavor and bring out some of the hidden characteristics like the hops. I recommend it both on tap and bottle. Will drink it again if I can get more.

Tap at CBC 2014. Beer in the glass light yellow, small head. Mild fruity aroma. Starts sourish-malty, a bit salty-earthy. Some fruity notes of lemon. Nice malty finish. Okay.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Orange-gold with good, creamy, white head , weak lacing / Nose of citrus & orchard fruit, brett, straw / Light to medium body, a touch thin, fruit but with good balance and lightly bitter finish / Flavors of apple, grapefruit, orange, straw, light old sweater / Don’t understand why they brew this to only 4.2%. Has good potential but is, as expected, weak.
