Bottle. Thanks to douglas88 for sending. Pours a hazy golden color with white head. Tart, apple, some funk, and pear aromas. Sour apple, tart flavors. A little too apple juice flavored for me.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Growler from Albertsons. Release 62. Notable that this straight up Saison in aroma and taste, fruit comes in second. Musty, yeasty, bready aroma. Taste follows with floral, yeasty Saison tastes, accented by the sour apples. Saison nature shines through

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sample at SBWF. Hazy golden with small off white head. Peppery aroma with marzipan, yeas and citrus. Dry and peppery taste with loads of spices. I don’t feel much sourness and almost no apples. Way too much spices in this one.

Clear, still, gold with a ring of white head.

Taste is soft, but tart green apple......cinnamon, honey, ginger......
Dry, not really sour...just tart and refreshing.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
9/14/15. Bomber batch #54. Light spicy nose. Not the sour apple I was expecting. More dark Belgian funk than sour. Light straw body but not what I'd call a summer beer.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
22oz bottle- Pours with a nice little head, nutty note along with the Saison sour. Wow, lots of spice in there, but I can quite grasp the apple. Bubblegummy and banana smell and taste with a bit of an oily texture.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear yellow. Negligible head. Aroma of straw and Belgian spices. Flavor is like a Belgian golden ale, dry and a little bitter, with a smidge of apple cider. Not tart, which was disappointing to me based on the deScription.
