A mild saison, slightly tart and funky, with a lasting finish, this refreshing drink is slightly carbonated, murky yellow with lasting rim and whispy head that laces the glass. I enjoyed it, Yeast and brett, salty and sour.

375 ml. bottle. 2014 batch 11. Pours a minimal off white head, over a hazy gold (SRM 5) body.....nose is light lactic acid, hints of apple, lemon, barnyard funk, hints of cereal, no hops, balance to the yeasts.....taste is lightly sour with lactic notes, sour apple, lemon, hints of barnyard funk, vinous notes, minimal malts, light hops......mouth feel, light of medium body, light astringency, no alcohol, carbonation adds creaminess to the acid. The acids dominate in both aroma and flavor. The result is a refreshing, quenching beer, that has evolved beyond a Saison into the realm of sour beers. It is quite nice, just really not a mainstream Saison. BJCP 6/3/12/4/6

IndianaRed (2491) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 4, 2014
Bottle brought back from my Denver trip. Kind of a hazy murky orange/amber with a small fleeting white head. Tart aroma of apricots, and peaches. More tart fruit flavors, with a little perfume floral note. More of a full on sour than a saison. Full flavors and moderate acidity. A little of that farmhouse yeast but mostly dominated by the more classic sour flavors. Very nice.

krumbum (521) - truckee, California, USA - JUL 26, 2014
Amazing tart sour light grain smell. A beautiful see though but full golden copper. A sharp tartness that blends to a light grain sour, smooth delicious. Great mouth feel coats and leaves a lasting sour after the liquid fades.

Unclear orange body with a nice white head. Aroma is malty hay, citrus, floral, spicy and funky. Taste is medium sour with a citrus hint. Reminds me of pomelo. Bitter finish.
