Bottle... Hazy yellow pour with a small, white, quickly dissipating head. The aroma is a collection of fruity, herbal, musty, dusty and funky notes. Medium-bodied with busy carbonation. The flavor is sour and fruity with a light splash of red wine vinegar and a mild herbal component. Short, sour, acetic finish.

Top of the cork says 2013, but hey this tastes and smells great. Letís do this. Rcvd in trade, thank you Damian. Poured into a tulip. The appearance was a gentle looking hazy yellowed orange color with a slim quarter finger white head that dissipated within less than thirty seconds. The smell had a nice funky and somewhat sour but still a settling sweet citrus (grapefruit/mango/lemon rind and lemon) backed up by a light spice. The taste was sharp fresh citrus sweetness over coating a light spice. Thereís a nice citrusy sweet refreshing like but not watery aftertaste. I didnít get any finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a pretty good sessionability about this one. The carbonation comes across fairly smooth. I didnít mind that it was lighter than most saisons as it created a very nice refreshing quality to this beer. Overall, are all of Saint Somewhereís beers this good? If so, I need to make an appearance to this fine brewery some day as this was an exceptional beer more than worthy of having again.

Bottle at Spinrsxís tasting via Luke. Light golden ale with some off white head, some pepper, lemon rind, grassy, dry, light. High carbonation, mild+ body, refreshing, nicely balanced with some sourness and a slight funk, ends with a bit of tart. I quite liked this.

A hazed golden saison with a thin white head. In aroma, sweet fruity malt with grassy character, wild weed, light solvent notes, OK. In mouth, a sweet fruity malt with smooth sour apple, lemon, very nice. Bottle from Lukeís, tasted at Spinrsx tasting.

From Matt. Thanks! A: Golden straw, very little head. Some bubbles and decent legs. N: Tamarind, lemon, earth, manure, yeast. Glue and overripe orange. T: Sour eary yeast. Very little sugar or yeast. Distinct... M: Light, well carbed. Traces of acidity - no alcohol. O: I donít think Iím a fan of tamarind. This is unbridled sourness, and while that might work for a tasting, itís not a bottle for one.

12/28/13. 750mL bottle from Chanís in Destin. A surprising selection from Bob - I was armed with a kitchen towel around the cork and cage and opened over the kitchen sink and instead found myself having to pry to cork out. A modest pop followed by some fog out the top of the bottle. Hazed orange pour with a small khaki head that fades to a ring and laces well. Lightly tart aroma, touches of vinegar, funk, bitter herbal aspects, floral. More tart in the flavor, a bit of vinegar, funky, floral, herbal, and doughy malts. Tasty.

Bottle from Proof. Cloudy pale yellow pour with a small loose bubbly head that leaves quickly. Strong smell of acetone, apricot and yeast fuck. Light carbonation with similar flavors as the nose. What happened guys? No bueno.
