3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2013 Yeasty. Healthy amounts of wild, barnyard funk. Tart, malty, hoppy, plus bitterness from the yeast all blend in harmony. Juicy oranges midway through. An excellent shelf turd, if I do say.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml bottle into signature tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours lightly hazy bright golden amber color with a 1 finger foamy white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of tart apple, lemon, pear, orange zest, pepper, clove, wheat, hay, grass, floral, funk, oak, light leather, light vinegar, and earthy yeast spiciness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of yeast notes with moderate barrel and hop notes. Taste of tart apple, lemon zest, pear, orange zest, hay, grass, floral, pepper, clove, wheat, oak, funk, light vinegar, and earthy yeast spiciness. Light tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of light fruits, citrus, floral, pepper, clove, oak, funk, light vinegar, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance and complexity of hop, yeast, and barrel flavors; with good robustness of flavors and no cloying after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a moderately creamy, lightly acidic, and smooth mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an excellent sour saison. All around nice balance and complexity of yeast, hop, and barrel flavors; and very smooth to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.
