A bit sour on the palate it is an interesting beer. I am glad I got a sampler as it is touted as a Saison but does not taste like it.

Sour and light fruit up front. Darker malt in back. Pleasant overall and nicely balanced but maybe a hint of rubber cement in the finish.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a deep, dark orangey hue with a thick, frothy head that leaves plenty of lacing on the way down. Apricot, lemon zest and funk on the nose. sweet apricot, plum, strawberry up front, followed by a wave of mild sourness. Medium bodied with light carbonation. Really great beer. Enjoyed it.

Chestnuts make this beet, very unique characteristics, nutty, smoky and sweet. Everything blends well here, nice food accompaniment.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer pours a slightly hazy amber color with a small white head that fades quickly. The aroma blends a certain level of sourness, nuttiness, Belgian yeast, and a hint of nutmeg. The taste is mildly sour, slightly sweet, and a touch umami, with an aftertaste that is slightly sour with some clove flavor emerging. The palate fuses a lively carbonation, slick texture, and a light body.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Beer Kitchen No. 1 in Kansas City, served in a snifter.
A: Arrived as a hazy orange brew, with a thick white head of tiny, tight bubbles that left not only good lacing, but distinct level markers for each sip.
S: Alas, I was at a restaurant with a kitchen, so my olfactory was running with a skeleton crew at best. What I was able to pick up were heavy citrus notes, sour and tart, and some hints of a wheaten grain bill.
T: Yes, definitely tart. This opens with a mixture of citrus fruit notes with the full sourness one would expect from such a medley, and that sourness does not relent. Orange, lemon, grapefruit, and tangerine roll through, with some subtler hints of apple and green grapes, before a swell of farmland-esque funk comes in the middle. Beneath the tartness, there are notes of spices, the usual suspects for a mulled cider, though faint and muted. The finish is Mojave desert-level dry.
M: To be honest, I couldn’t really tell around the sour and tart, so I’ll just say there’s no issues there.
O: Intense without sacrificing complexity to do so, this is an interestingly sour biere de garde. Would repeat.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma: Apple cider vinegar, caramel, cinnamon, slightly nutty. Appearance: Slightly hazy dark caramel color with a whipped bone head that settles into a creamy tuft. Flavor: Like a tart, cinnamon topped caramel apple at a fall festival; nuttiness only shows up a bit in the finish. Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, long finish. Overall: Loved it; a beautiful beer all around.

Slightly sour brown which turns out to be a little flat and blamd. At the beer belly in Albany
