Bottle from Favourite Beers, Cheltenham. Cloudy amber with a frothy white head. Rich sour lemony brett aroma. The taste is really zingy tart lemon curd. Light oak too. Crisp and refreshing. Great.

DiarmaidBHK (4189) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 9, 2016
Draft at liquor express. Pours golden with a thin white head. Leaves trace lacing in the glass. Big barnyard and funk on the nose. Lots of horse blanket flavor on the tongue along with some tartness. Finished clean. Lovely saison! I see why people are so Smokey and the Bandit about it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap into a wine glass showing a finger of clean white foam on top of well filtered hay yellow. The nose shows a citric forwardness of fresh and ripe lemon with a robust malt backbone. The palate is moderately carbonated and light to medium bodied. Medium tartness throughout with flavors of light citrus but a strong citric zesty bitterness that permeates the beer; distracting and overpowerful. The bitterness reaches into the finish and not a lot of maltiness to balance it out.

Enjoyed on tap at Crooked Stave Taproom in Denver, CO while on vacation. Appearance is a juice like cloudy dark gold with a prominent white head. Aroma smells tart with notes of oak, light stinky cheese. Taste is overly sour in the best way possible with a fantastic crisp malt finish that nicely lingers for at least two seconds. I haven't had a beer like this in a while that knocks you back after first sip. At first I thought it was my least favorite of my sampler offerings but now I think it's my most favorite. Great stuff!
