4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Got in a trade with cyde. 500 ml bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Gusher upon opening as expected, didn’t lose anything. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy bright golden amber color with a 2 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings around the glass, with a ton of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of tart lemon peel, lime zest, peach, pear, green apple, hay, straw, floral, wheat, musty brett funk, light vinegar, clove, herbal, pepper, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/funky/spicy yeast ester and light malt notes; with great strength. Taste of tart lemon peel, lime zest, pear, green apple, clove, pepper, hay, straw, floral, wheat, light vinegar, musty brett funk, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Fair amount of fruity/earthy tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of tart lemon peel, lime zest, pear, green apple, clove, pepper, hay, straw, floral, wheat, herbal, musty brett funk, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity of fruity/funky/spicy yeast ester and light malt flavors; with a great fruity/spicy yeast flavor balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. High carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, moderately prickly, and lightly acidic mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent sour saison! All around great complexity and balance of fruity/spicy/funky yeast ester flavors with light malt presence; and very smooth and crisp to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.

Bottle - Very funky with grass and lemon. Hazy orange with a thin white head. Tart and funky off the bat with the grass and lemon. Not too much going on except the tartness and funky flavors. Still pretty refreshing, just wish the abv was a bit lower.

From notes. Bottle shared thanks to Matt! Pours a hazy golden yellow with thin white lacy cap that sticks lightly. Aroma is farmhouse funk and slight grass and hay notes. Taste follows with a slight bitter quality before the funk. Interesting and pretty darn good.
