gtmw09....poured a cloudy medium orange brown with very little head. didn’t look all that great to be honest... aroma of tart lemony esthers with some complimenting saison like yeast and fruit....flavors of tart citrus fruit, lightly sour, and a little bit of yogurt. very refreshing and drinkable. one of the best of the day.

Sampled at GTMW 2009. A thick, yellowish-orange pour. Sour, tart aroma. Sour orange and lemon flavor. This was a great beer. Not my most eloquent description of a beer but certainly worthy of a very good rating.

TheAlum (5530) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - AUG 10, 2009
Sampled at GTMW 2009 (Madison, WI). Pours a thick pumpkin juice color, no head, opaque. Aromas are a bit funky, light with a touch of belgian yeasty spice, mellow fruit and almost a grapefruit acidity, a tame Belgian with something lurking beneath. Initial is tart, a lactic sourness and tart finish dominate this beer. Light sweetness, tart dominant with good flavors of citrus, sour finish. Very good lighter bodied sour (although it definitely still packs some strong sour tart qualities). Solid finish that leaves the tounge a bit parched from the sourness. I’d love to try this again soon as it was up there among favorites from the fest.
