_angst_ (2799) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 29, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2014 Bottle courtesy of Hĺkan (non-RB). Pours hazy vibrant orangish yellow with a thin white head that leaves a small trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is fruity and funky with crackers, apricots, peach skins, mango, sour cherries, clementines, barnyard, hay, dry soil, minerals, grape skins, dry wood and lemon zest. Taste is sour, fruity and funky with crackers, lemon juice, lime juice, apricots, peaches, papaya, hay, dry soil, barnyard, minerals, orange zest, dry wood, Chardonnay wine, lemon zest, sour cherries and hints of apple cider vinegar covered ripe stone fruits. Mouthfeel is dry, tart, tiny mouth-puckering and light to medium bodied. Finish is sour, fruity and funky with crackers, lime juice, apricots, peaches, sour cherries, barnyard, hay, dry soil, dry wood, grape skins, orange zest, lemon zest and hints of apple cider vinegar. Great complex sour funky fruit saison. Just some hints of apple cider vinegar that drags it down slightly.

"A cool saisonish wild base with just the right amount of sweet and tart fruit in top. Dry, fairly acidic, moderately sour. Good stuff...heard its even better on tap. Guess ill have to investigate. Gotta up it a tenth. 4+ in the bottle, but a fruitier 4.2+ on tap."

I’m surprised this isn’t more highly rated. It’s an excellent sour saison with a very good fruit flavor. The beer pours fairly cloudy and orange-ish amber. The head is white, small-ish. The aroma is apricot jam on top of oak, funk and a light saison base. Moderate level of funk. Barnyard and dust with a pleasant touch of dry cheese mold. The fruit is very well expressed, juicy and jammy and natural. Some light malt in the background. Gentle pale malt sweetness and a delicate floral apricot fruitiness kick off the taste. Acidity picks up gently and rises to a satisfying level. Oak and funk dry things out in the finish. Moderate pucker. Normal carbonation. Some body to it. This is fantastic stuff. Lots of flavor. Refined and fruity.

ineedbeer (751) - Oakland, California, USA - JUL 29, 2014
Pours from a 12 oz bottle. Aroma is fairly fruit with a nice apricot character. Light phenolic spicy note and light oak character. Light Brett character of tropical fruit and barnyard funk. Pours a somewhat cloudy, pale golden orange with a small, fairly thin white head that steadily recedes to the edges where it lingers. Medium light lacing and faint legs. Flavor is slightly sweet but also with a balanced acidity. Moderate apricot character with some medium light oak and faint tannins. Medium light Brett character with mostly tropical fruit but also a touch of barnyard funk. Dry finish with juicy fruit character. Light malt notes and light citrus. Mouthfeel is medium light bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, another really nice fruity saison from Tahoe Mountain; this brewery is really good. Nice oak character balances the fruitiness and adds good complexity. Brett character is light but works well.

Homer321 (1892) - Rock Ridge, Florida, USA - JUL 23, 2014
Draft at brewery in Truckee. Lots of fruitiness and stoney. Light tartness in the flavor. A wonderful compliment of fruitiness and tartness, lightly drying with some tannins, but a great beer.

Bottle thanks to Russell. Pours a cloudy yellow with small frothy white head that lasts. The aroma is strong funk and apricot. Thin mouthfeel with nice tart apricot, oak, and light yeast. Very good.

Bottle shared by Marcus. Pours translucent orange with a transient white head. Aroma of yeast and fruit. Med body. Flavor is brett/oak/tart, mildly sour with strong fruit that has to be apricot. Clearly so in the finish.

marcus (6538) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 9, 2014
Bottle from Star Grocery, Berkeley. Pours clear blonde with a transient white head and a sour fruit aroma. There is a hearty apricot flavor with a nice yeast presence. And a bit of oak. This is an excellent sour beer that is much more flavorful than many other saisons.
