Just an outstanding beer. Tartness is light but evident. Slight Saison aroma but not as funky as Vielle. Very drinkable and now one of my favorites.

375ml bottle pours a slightly hazy orangey brown color. Medium sourness balances against the farmhouse funk.

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.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Beermoth, Manchester. Hazy, pale amber. Lasting, filmy, white head. Lime zest. White wine. Wood. Lemon. Taste is lemon tart. Light, woody dry. A hint of honey sweet. So far, so good, but a greasy, thick, dull palate really lets this beer down. If I knew what I was talking about, I’d say this has spent way too much time in a barrel. Finish is tart and dry. Utterly underwhelming.

Dark cloudy orange colour, big white head. Excellent acidic aroma with green apple, wheat, wood, yeast, grapes. Medium body, ideal carbonation. Incredible fruity tart flavour with green apples, lemon, vinegar. Exceptional.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
375 ml bottle. Pours a hazy amber color with a small white head that soon recedes to a fine film. The aroma is big with mixed fruits and bubble gum. The taste is tart with lemons in the forefront followed by apples and sour grapes set in a bready pils malt base. The palate was just a bit on the thin side and the carbonation was lively. Finished a bit short. Overall: Very nice tasty little saison, but the $10.00 price tag made this a very poor value.

From CO brother, shared with ck1 on the patio in the final afternoon of the family holiday weekend. Thanks Ken! Hazy orange pour. Heavy oaky funk. Tangy; cherries, brett. Not as good as the Vieille. ck1 says opposite.

4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Solidly sour with a very nice roundness of flavor. Hint of bready malt balances it out in the back. General tangy fruit flavor. Some funk and yeast in the aftertaste. "Unripe pineapple" is a nice term from another review. Mostly lactic but there’s some sharp vinegar. Really complex and polished. Seems like more of a sour/wild ale than a saison, but if I search I can find some clove or spice.
