2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at the brewery. Hazy golden wheat with a fine white head. Stale grains, wheat and lactic acid throughout. Strangely milky with cereal grain flavor (Cheerios) with chalky, silty, pasty yeast. Resembles berliner weisse but without wheat. As it opens the acidity and milky sourness becomes difficult to handle, and it creeps over into stomach bile / vomit territory. There’s some dried fruit character as well, could be from hops or the tropical yeast esters, I’m not sure, but it does give it a distinct sour patch kid candy flavor. Lightly sweet, grainy, chalky, lactic and messy.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml. bottle. It pours a clear golden color with a huge frothy off white head. The aroma has a lot of dusty yeast and some pepper. Maybe some hints of lemon. Not really funky, it has more of the dirt on the ground inside the farmhouse than the farmhouse itself, if that makes any sense. The flavor is very tart with lots of lemon rind, sour apricots and a little cheese. No yogurt-like lacto notes, which is what I was hoping for. There’s a hint of vinegar and some detectable leafy bitterness that doesn’t mesh well with the strong sourness and gives it a hint of leaky dumpster. The Saison qualities are pretty much lost underneath all the intense acid. If the sourness was more complex, It would be ok, but as it stands it’s pretty simple. Not a terrible beer, but not really my thing.
