Really nice oaky sour with nice noble hop bite at the back end. Lactic tartness and some lemon, funk, grass, and herbs. Nice beer.

750 ml. bottle. Pours a thin, poorly retained off white head, over a cloudy orange gold (SRM 6) body.....nose is light fruit with pear apple tones, hints of barnyard funk, light cereal.....taste is mild sour, lightly tart, hints of wood, light fruits pear apple, finishing with light sour....mouth feel light of medium, carbonation high with a clean acid finish. The pleasant sourness is somewhat too dominant for a Saison, and the malt backbone in both aroma and flavor is a bit too hidden. I did not detect the barrels. The net is a nice quenching, refreshing Sour that falls into no category except to be pleasant to consume. BJCP 7/3/13/4/6

750 ml bottle shared by b3shine Dec. 2012. Pours a hazy golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor had a tingly tart fruity character with citrus and white grapes, some apple juice, woody, acidic,very mild whiskey notes, drying at the finish. Good flavor up front, but fades a bit at the end. Still, solid for 4.5%.

750ml bottle shared by Madbeerbaron. Hazy orange-tan body. Patchy, soapy white head. Mellow lemon-lime, citrus, tropical flavors. Really quite nice, sessionable, authentic. Effervescent, light and fluffy on the palate. Great.

jcartamdg (1876) - Spring Hill, Florida, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Pours a hazy orange gold with a paper thin white head. Aroma of fresh bitter hops, wheat and oak. Taste is bitter, slightly tart, slight malt presence, wheat, oak and citrus. Light and really drinkable. I don’t know that I would call this beer sour but there is a slight tartness.

Bottle. Pours straw yellow with minimal white head. Aromas of apricot, lemon zest and white wine. Taste is very very much the same. Apricot and white wine flavors up front. Subtle lemon zest on the finish. Very light and refreshing.

Bomber. Pours a hazy pale gold with a large white head. Aroma and flavor are classic saison goodness with an extra dose of lightly sour funk. Lots of citrus and light fruit (melon, peach, tropical fruit). Notes of grass, spice, grain, light breadiness. Spritzy carbonation. Wonderful! And I love the low ABV.
