A- pour hazy cider color with a nice fizzy looking head. The appearance reminds me of a fuzzy peach or something. Quite a bit of lacing sticking to the glass.
S- tart peaches and lemons with some barnyard funk and straw aromas. It smells very tart.
T- Surprisingly it's nowhere near as tart as the aromas would have you believe. Slight lemon tartness up front with straw and funk again and a hint of white pepper and bitterness on the finish. Very mellow, subtle flavors but still tasty.
M- makes my tongue fuzzy. Wanted a bit more carbonation. Still light and mellow.
O- Honestly I was expecting more sour flavors, but I guess it's a Saison not a sour. This would be Le Petit Prince's big brother. Moderately complex, highly drinkable. Needs more carbonation though. Not bad.

Hazy hay hued with a thin foamy white head. Huge meaty and peppery nose, funky saison and grassy tones. Great peppery and blonde malty flavor with a bit of cured meat and earthy funk. Lovely.

Aroma: lemon and sour grass.
Appearance: cloudy with some yeast floaties
Taste: tart and some of the essay character.
Palate: thin lively carbonation.
Overall: taste fizzy refreshing spritzer like with the flavor of the lemon grass you chewed on as a kid.

750mL bottle poured into Prairie stemware -- very cloudy be with tiny but persistent white head. Aroma is tart lemon and hint of yeast funk. Flavor is a well attenuated slight tart Saison. Refreshing and well done.

Cloudy straw. Really peppery and dry. More of a saison than a sour. Tasted at chris’ ultimate bottle share.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home. Pours light yellow with a medium white head. Nose is peppery and hoppy, not that sour. Nice white pepper, elderberry and light apricot exotic touches. Not really a sour but more an american style saison.
