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 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from tap to glass at Les Caves. Straw hue with slight haze and creamy white head that lingered. Aroma is straw, lactic, earthy, peppercorn, lemon. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium light body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry throughout with a nice tart sourness in the following and a clean finish. Overall this is a nice brew.

Finished up our Commons stash last night and this one did not disappoint. Lemony tartness and an underlying rustic yeast strain make this both a summer quencher and appealing sour. Good stuff.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour is a hazy golden amber with a fairly tight white head. Nose has a fair bit of grain, lots of lemon esters, and lactic acid. Taste has a strong lemon up front, stale grain mid palate, lots of lingering lemony esters. Finish is fairly strong on lactic acid, carb is strong and body is light. Flavors are dominated by fruity esters and lactic acid, still fairly enjoyable.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Just a tad too shy of a beer, although quite complex. By this I mean that the tartness is just a bit too strong, such that the base saison is hard to discern. But if you work at it, you are rewarded.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pouors a deep golden almost copper color with a finger or two of white fuzz. Nice balance of fruity pear, apple and barnyard funk. Round malt bill adds nice backbone for the brett qualities to use as a platform. Honeyed apple, tart unripe bosc pear a touch of cherry and some musky basement lingers.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This beer has a cloudy yellow color. It has a strong aroma like green apples. It pours with a very thick head and is more mildly sour than some similar beers I have had. Very well done.

Pours a deep golden color with a thick white head that diminishes slowly. Rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of tart fruit, yeast and bready malt.
