4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours an opaque yellowish orange color. Head is almost non-existent, as is dissipates quickly. Typical of barrel aged brews occasionally. Aroma of tropical fruits, papaya, slight mango, some oak notes are present and some wonderful funkiness. Huge sourness in the taste, unripe mango, some vanilla and oak. This beer is a great barrel aged sour with the palate of a solid saison.

At salt lock with Stephen. Pours orange with almost no head. Very low carb. Aroma is zesty lemon funk, fresh. Taste is fresh very funky almost sour, BT balanced drinkable sour saison. Some complexity in the sourness, but mostly just a unique delicate saison that has really soured up in a good way. Very nice.

[Bottle] thanks, Ron! Golden-yellow body, light & full of a cloudy haze all throughout. An almost nonexistent, white head fizzles instantly into thin air. Aroma has notes of sour & tart fruits; green apples, white grape, ripe pears, & some faint peach in the back-end. A touch of barnyard-y funk, Brett-like with some earth & wood in the finish. Taste is sour up front with borderline acidic lemon, apples, & citrus... The sourness slowly fades into a mellow sweetness as the funk comes alive with some wet blanket, cellar floor funk followed by a dry, oak-y tannic finish. Plenty of lemon zest & tart citric notes left on your palate in the aftertaste.
[Update] Sampled again about 5 months later thanks to Kevin. It’s already developed quite a bit - much more sour than I remember with a pleasantly sweet, fruity finish... citrus, lemon, peach, white grape. Lower funk, more sour. Still a nice Brett presence throughout, though. Definitely tasty stuff.
