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.

Aroma’s the best thing here with traditional saison characteristic and only a hint of the band aids to come. Flavor, on the other hand, isn’t so good. I can pick up the saison, but the apple corrupts it and creates the band aid- blech. Body is a touch on the thin side. Thankfully, the finish isn’t long.

Pours a golden amber color with big fluffy head. Aromas of fruit, grass, yeast, and some dusty notes. Starts spicy effervescent, then to some grassy funky highlights...nice brett finish.

Release#64 abv 7.1%...This is somewhat tart - not sour, but a good balance between sweet - tart - spice - fruit. Refreshing and easy drinking...fairly reminiscent of apple cider.
