Poured a yellow color from the growler with aromas of bread, tartness, light grapefruit, and some hay. Flavors are the same a light sour with some grapefruit thrown in. Decent beer overall.

On tap at yogis. 12 oz pour. Rich yellow with little foam. Smell is sour bread and fruit. Taste is sharper and sour than expected. Grapefruit on the nose and on the finish. Te finish was unexpectedly nice. The grapefruit lingers and makes me want to sip slower. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Emeister84 (767) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAY 22, 2013
Citrus and tropical fruit on the nose, with some notes of honey graham cracker. Mostly clear, very light peachy hue, with a fairly lasting, white head. Off-dry, fruity, and with subtle notes of golden earth. Light bodied, refreshing, and with nice lingering, fresh fruitiness.

Nice mix of saison and sour. Easier for me to drink than either of those styles.

onceblind (3675) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 6, 2013
Clear light gold with a thin foamy head. Aroma of slight lactic sour tones with some barn yeast esters and a little grains of paradise. Flavor is dry and tart with a nice mellow sourness, some flavorful Saison malt tones with a kiss of bubblegum, and a dry hay and blonde malt finish.

Aroma was like a fresh cut grapefruit. The color was a bit light. It had a very interesting flavor. More like a framboise. It has a sweet, saison like beer mixed with an IPA. It gives you a tart fruit beer. Overall it was very pleasant if you like tart drinks. I would be happy to have a few of these on a warm day.

Strykzone (4483) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUN 28, 2013
On tap at Bigelos. Lightly hazed golden with a small off white layer. The aroma is sourness with fruit. I taste the funky sour yeast with fruit that is surprisingly sweet. This is not sour at all. Vinous effects and woody leather. The bret is tasted late. Interesting.
