callmemickey (2252) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 28, 2012
Hazy pale golden-yellow body, slight white head, not much staying power. Nose is apple cider vinegar, lemon, and must. Not particularly pleasant. Flavor carries over and is quite difficult to work through. Medium bodied, appropriate carbonation, unsettling acidity, muddled finish.

merc7186 (1729) - North Tonawanda, New York, USA - NOV 15, 2013
A: Hazy Golden Straw Hue, Passes Some Light, Thin White Head Ring, Mild Lacing S: Mild Lemons, Mild Hay, Mild Yeast, Mildly Grassy T: Hay, Mild Yeast, Mild Lemons; Mild White Grape M: Mediocre Carbonation, Light to Medium Bodied, Mildly Yeasty Overall, I give them credit for trying to combine a sour and a saison but you got a lot more mild saison and very little sour character...its too bad it didnt lean one way or the other.

Funknmilla (673) - Wayne, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 9, 2013
Draft July 2012...cloudy off white head...a little lacing, looks promising....sour combined with wheat...light and tangy with a zesty citrus aroma, would do well with a fresh strawberry

DeputyAndy (632) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 10, 2012
Draft at Capone’s. Clear red pour with no head. Subdued aroma is amvery wineish. Taste is heavily influenced by oak and grape skins. Tastes like a cabarnet. No sour at all. Oak is almost wrecking the grape flavors.

ReggieDunlap (2922) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 25, 2012
Pours a hazy pale yellow with a medium white head. Aroma has mild lemony/wheaty tartness...reminds me of some berlinerweisses. Flavor is grapefruity...rindy...light lemon...very wheaty/yeasty...also reminiscent of tripels in a way. Mouthfeel is medium/full with a grapefruit/rindy finish.

alobar (2614) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 19, 2012
Maize colored pour with a grain, fruit, and slight tart aroma. Citrus flavor with spice, grain, and just a hint of sour. Much more saison than sour.

UPDATED: OCT 7, 2013 On tap at Devils Den, glowing yellow pour with a snow white head. Pretty good lacing. Aromas are bready, bannana, clove, and shampoo. Taste is fruits, mangos, bannana, and orange slices. Very fresh and crisp.
