Clear golden pour with a very creamy frothy white head. Definitely get the sour apple combined with typical saison aromas of pepper, honey, biscuit. Interesting palate. Slightly tart from the apple. Saison characteristics are subdued. Slightly watery. Interesting, but I wish the flavor was stronger on the saison, to balance the sour apple.

Very ginger aroma. Appears like very bubbly applejuice. Very juicy bright peachy ginger flavor, crisp, with a touch of hay bitterness. Small bubble fizz palate. A standout saison.

Tap. Bubbly. Not much head. Clearish dark gold. Apple cider nose. Nice spotty lacing. Very apple ciderish quality with very mild notes of ginger and cardamom and nutmeg.

Bottle at the brewery. Pours almost clear gold with a fizzy white head. Tastes like green apples, light yeast. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like light yeast, green apple.

Bottle shared with Cindy and Alex. Snifter pour was murky wheat colored with a small white head. Aroma was slight apples with cinnamon. Smelled like an apple cobbler. Taste was some green apple, cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla. Very dry all the way through. Light body, moderate carb. I thought it was alright.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Lots of bubblegum in the aroma with cinnamon and other spices, not much apple though. Slightly murky, mid yellow body with a thin white ring. Flavor leans heavily towards the nutmeg, cinnamon with a touch of apple on the back side. Unusual for a saison, cant say that i care for it.

Not so much sour as just green apple tart. Delicate balance of numerous spices lingers in the background.

I was expecting more sour in this Sour Apple Saison, but it’s definitely more on the clean, dry ale side than expected. That said, it drinks cleanly for such a high ABV farmhouse ale. The apple flavor is subtle through the front with a finish and aftertaste reminiscent of a dry white wine. I would reach for this again in the summer vice the dead of a New England winter. Off to find the next big sour to make watching the snow fall easier on the eyes.

On tap. Hazy golden color with white head. Big cinnamon, allspice, vanilla, apple aromas. Medium body. Golden apple, cinnamon, allspice flavors with spicy yeast, and a pale malt base brew--___good

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Appearance: this beer pours with a medium white head that settles into a very small head, the beer is very clear light yellow color
Aroma: funky, spicy, possibly licorice, apple, potpourri,
Taste: apple, fennel, sour, soft bitter finish,
Palate: bitter and fennel aftertaste, average carbonation, lighter mouthfeel
Overall: I can’t say I am a fan of these flavors the way they come together, this beer has a certain warmth to it, the fennel or licorice does not mix well with the alcohol or apple, don’t recommend
