3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 form Rite Aid, bottled on March 24, 2014. That was a really rapid trip to the shelf. The pour is a cloudy yellow with a fizzy white head. The aroma is great and I have a good feeling about this one. It’s wild, cheesy with tartness like lemons and a subtle backdrop of earthy hops. The palate is a little spritzy and dry. I like a lot of what is going on here in the flavor: subtle earth and wood suggestions, aggressive citrus and vinegar flavors. But the sourness is very sharp and flirts with being chalky or like straight acid even at around 50 degrees. But it improves the warmer it gets and at close to room temperature it’s nice. I do still enjoy the aroma more.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 4/9/2014. Pours lightly hazy golden orange color with a 2 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big lemon, lime, orange zest, green apple, white grape, pepper, coriander, hay, straw, grass, musty funk, wheat, cracker, white vinegar, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Damn nice complexity and balance of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, spice, and pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of bit lemon, lime, orange zest, green apple, white grape, pepper, coriander, hay, straw, grass, musty funk, wheat, cracker, white vinegar, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Good amount of earthy yeast spiciness and light-moderate tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, lime, orange zest, green apple, white grape, hay, straw, grass, coriander, pepper, wheat, cracker, white vinegar, musty funk, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity and balance of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, spice, and pale malt flavors; with a great malt/spice/tartness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and fairly prickly/acidic mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent sour saison style. All around great complexity and balance of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, spice, and pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink with the balanced acidity. A very enjoyable offering.

From the 11/2014 3R6P gathering. +++ Sampled from a 750 ml corked brown bottle this beer poured a murky orange-amber color with an enormous fluffy orange-white head that left minimal lacing. The aroma was tart and sour with sour patch candies and hints of pepper and chalk. The flavor was very sour, tart and fruity with citric acid, sour patch candies and yeast. Long tart and sour citric acid finish. Medium body. Interesting.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
[Bottle (750ml) shared with GregClow, Radek, jercraigs & mabel -- c/o j&m] Pours a hazy yellow-gold with a small diminishing bubbly white head. Aroma is sour and citrusy along with some herbs, grain and wheat. Flavour of sour citrus, light herbs and a bit of wood in the finish. Average bodied. A bit too one-dimensional for me, the Farmhouse aspect of it gets lost.
