3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750mL bottle. Aroma is slightly acetic with light strawberry puree. Flavor is similar. It reminds me of Cascade. Its a one trick pony. Not bad but I want more Brett, some other characteristics.

[ Bottle ][ 750mL ][ Trade ][ Tasting ][ Tired Hands Stemware ][ 2.27.15 ]
>> Pours hazy, glowing orange gold pour with minimal foam. Nose is more lambic than saison with intense oak, tangelo, fresh peach, underripe plum, and molding red grapefruit...moves to something more salty and impending sour like Hannsens strawberry lambic. Taste brings some hefty key lime sourness, fresh plum, juicy red grapefruit and leathery tamarind in the mid, white strawberry lambic through the finish with neutral oak and saltwater. Slightly phenolic in the taste. Overall much more a sour/wild than saison. But still amazing.

750ml bottle in a teku. Pours hazy golden with a lacy, white head. Aroma of light tartness, some strawberry, light malts, hints of oak, and some more light fruits. Flavor the same with a great blend. Average texture. A solid beer.

This beer knocked it out of the park for me! What a funky nose this starts off with! Perfect! I love that stinky strawberry/burnt rubber smell out of the gate. Lots of tart sting, barnyard, oak and fruity esters. Taste is almost as good, with loads of strawberry goodness...even finding a few seeds in my glass...and, oh my, the funk! Thought this was right in my wheelhouse as far as an American Fruited Saison....more like Sour/Wild Ale....whatever you call it, this is excellent drinking material! The finish is semi dry, but the fruit sweetness clings to your palate. Yogurt, blue cheese, hay, oak, vanilla, strawberry jam....then one more dose of the sour! Wish I could drink this more often!

Bottle @ Beachwood Brewing. Thanks, Greg! Surprisingly clear bright orange pour with a short lived white head. Smells very much of strawberry. A touch jammy and overripe. Sort of a dehydrated fruit smell. Lemon juice and grass, maybe some musty, damp funk. Flavor is sort of like strawberry flavored bubblegum. Sweet berry, cotton candy, and vanilla. A lot of sour lemon juice. Damp oak, some musty funk, and straw. Smells better than it tastes, but still good.

Bottle thanks to Will. Pours a cloudy orange ruby with small frothy white head that lasts. The aroma is strong under ripe strawberry skin, oak, funk. Medium mouthfeel with nice tart strawberry, light funk, wow, really enjoyed this one.
