Draught at the brewery. Pours clear yellow with a medium, frothy white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is medium earthy wheat and biscuit malt, lime notes, floral and fruity hops with light sourness. Flavor is tart soft fruits, yeast spices, crisp biscuit and earthy wheat malt and a dry finish. Light body and carbonation.

On tap at the brewery. Pale yellow, with no head. Apricot, light yogurt, salt, lemon juice, and straw and mustiness. Sweet and fruity, with a mild, pleasant tartness. Light, barely acidic, creamy, and clean. This is a refreshing, easy, and yet quite unique and well made beer.

750 ml swing top bottle a friend brought back from Colorado a while back. Pours clear dark golden color with no head. Sour barnyard aroma with oak and white wine. Lots of wine and oak flavors from the barrel with big sour taste. A little musty. Medium body with zero carbonation. A bit past its prime but still decent.

Aroma is sweet and sour, pour is clear dark golden in color, taste is sweet on the front and a minor sour flavor, finish is sweet not dry, a little citrus and bitter

Slightly hazy deep golden with a bubbly and somewhat unattractive head, like cola foam that didnt recede fast enough--though eventually receded to a thin cap. Musty pale golden nose with biscuits and basement funk with some hay and cereal. Tart and fruity flavor with some lacto-like bacteria on the front followed by hay and apricot and tart tree fruits. Calm hay and pseudobiscuit finish. Lovely.

Bottle pour at the brewery. Pale orange appearance with a small head, diminishing to nothing. Aroma of funky yeast, barnyard, tart fruits, citrus zest, bready malts, light banana and light barrel notes. Similar flavor, funky, tart, mildly fruity, vinous and lightly bitter hops. Light to medium body, soft carbonation, easy to drink. Smooth, dry and refreshing.

Bottle: Cloudy murky pale copper color. Citrusy aroma with mild yeast and a spritz taste of lemon, quite close to a sour ale. Average body. I liked this and thought it was pleasant. I liked that it was more tart and less yeasty than a lot of Saisons. Thanks Indiana_Red for sharing and to your dad for bringing this from Colorado!

Hazy orange with a short fizzy off white head. Tart and spritzy with a bit more body than typical saisons

750 ml. swing top bottle. 101 of 960. Pours an almost nonexistent off white head, over a cloudy, dark yellow (SRM 4) body.......nose is vinous, sour apple cider, light cereal, hints of spice, barnyard, very light hints of oak barrel.....taste is vinous, light spice, finishing lightly sour with a hint of bitterness....mouth feel light of medium, lightly astringent, lightly acidic, low carbonation. This misses the style by a lot. Appearance is off, with minimal head and lacing as opposed to lots of both. Carbonation is low rather than effervescent. The malt back bone is subdued, spices light. Were Lactobacilli used to create the sourness? Also this style is usually not barrel aged which adds all sort of variations. Eliminate the barrel and see what comes out!! BJCP 6/1/11/3/6

Bomber. Citrusy, sour aroma with a lot of maltiness. Pours golden colored with very little head. A lot of orange in the taste with other citrus. Finishes sour with a hint of banana. Good summery beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
