3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Hops & Pie. Pour is golden copper with a small white head and decent lacing. White wine, tannin, pear, pineapple, spice, yeast, wood, and caramel in the aroma. Taste is spicy, woody, and biscuity with light notes of tropical fruits, peach, and pepper with a light alcoholic burn on the finish. Not really sour and more of a Belgian strong ale, but pretty tasty, nonetheless.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Odell. Semi hazy dark golden with a thin white head. Aroma was pretty neat, with white wine and oak tones mixing with slightly sour candied peach tones and light very subtle grapefruit. Flavor was the same as the nose, kinda oaked and white-wine-y, with a subtle sourness of light fruits like peach and balancing grapefruit bitterness.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
750 ml. corked and caged bottle. 10.5% ABV per the label. Pours an enormous, fluffy ivory well retained head with extensive lacing, over a hazy light amber (SRM 7) body.......nose is light fruits (apple, pear), with hints of melon, peach, mango, very light barnyard funk......taste is tropical fruits, melon, peach, mango to start, leading into a very light dry sour finish.....mouth feel light, alcohol adds light warmth, carbonation, after the initial exuberance, low. This is more of an "Imperial" Saison, or a Belgian Golden Strong than a Sour or Wild. The sourness is well hidden by the myriad esters and front running malt sweetness. Given the sweetness the barrels were white, but I can’t really detect the woody effects over the esters and malts. BJCP 6/3/13/4/6

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Kitchen Next Door. Cloudy orange color with a lingering, medium dense head. Banana and strawberry hit up front in the nose, followed by a mild graininess and cucumber. Flavor is a bit malt heavy with only mild funk. More farmhouse than sour; in fact, there is almost no acidity at all. Easy drinking and controlled. Not bad.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a nice cloudy apricot color with a very fluffy white head. Aroma is up front with some barnyard, manure, citrus, oak, light vinous notes, clementines. Flavor has some good funk, yeast, oranges, leathery flavors, some tart qualitites mixed in with the sweet yeasty flavors. I think this version is better than the original version.
