man I’m sorry but I just don’t get/like this thing. pours a really lovely light golden/yellow. Taste just confoundedly perplexing. Taste like a sour but the whole package taste wise is a miss for me. Poured half the bottle down the drain. cant understand the high marks. Oh well. Thats what makes beer great, we all find different things good/bad. This was a clear miss for me.

Bottle from Sunnyvale Costco. Champagne & cider notes w/minor nod to a beer. Saison reference is a loose interpretation.

bierkitty (153) - Elysburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 17, 2014
Pours gold with a small head that quickly dissipated. Aroma of wine and malt. Flavor was white wine and some fruity maltiness with a faint hop bitterness. Delicious with clams and linguine and asparagus and strawberries. I should have added a little to the clam sauce.

Light and airy on the nose with a slight citrus aroma. A kind of plum/citrus flavor with a dry wine like finish. Appearance is clear. Overall a nice, crisp beer.

Atom (1216) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 28, 2014
Bottle pours a clear golden/orange with a medium white head. Aroma of dry cracker malt and saison yeast. Taste is pretty simple and one dimensional, saison yeast and some crisp wine grape (must). I was expecting more, this was rather simple and boring.

Belmont bottle shared with mom on Easter eve. The big notes on this were the saison yeast and the grape must lending some wine flavors. Unique. Good.

Poured a clear amber color with a thin white head. Taste fruity and dry like a white wine with malty yeast aftertaste, really good and drinkable. Has a fruity and tart taste with a nice dry finish.
