notalush (4999) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 12, 2013
Bottle - found this on sale, so I figure I’d give it a whirl - pours a lightly hazy dark straw color - headless, with just a faint ring of lace, and ver little carbonation - nose is some honey sweetness, but equal amounts sourness/acidity (almost smells like a partial sour mash), mineral, floral saaz hops - flavor is fairly sweet, tasting more like a tripel - flavors of citrus, melon, mango - strong spiciness, a moderate sourness, and some hop bitterness late - more like a Belgian strong or tripel - if you approach it as such, it is okay - if approached as a saison, it fails in all respects.

jmgreenuk (4980) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 8, 2013
Tap at Fresh Craft, Denver. Poured a clear light amber with no head at all. The aroma is spicy lemon and a hint of creamy caramel. The flavour is medium sour with a zesty grapefruit citrus palate. A very refreshing beer that even those people that don’t like sours would probably enjoy.
