Medium to good, just yellowish & dense head, dwindling over fully hazy orange-ochre beer. Farmyard odours, citrus, lemonbalm, rainwater, wet dog, herbal, lactic acid. Actually very inviting AND convincing. Quite tart, acidic, acerbic, lemony and nearly astringent. Faint woody touch, quite fruiy too: citrus, wild fruit, unripe fruit (unripe strawberry and ditto plums). Quite complex and layered, not unidimensional. Faint herbal touch in the finish. Titillating carbonation, mouthpuckering acidity, very light - attenuated - body. USA brewers ape Dupont when the make saison - they never had the opportunity to try the ’others’. This one is no exception, but for the fact that it completely convinces me, and that’s no mean accomplishment. Great!

Pours a cloudy light to medium orange. Small frothy white head, fairly lasting with some lace. Aroma is yeasty, brett, light fruity, light peppery, sour and woody, white wine. Flavor follows. Medium plus body. Pleasantly tart and sour, some funkiness, little dryness. All that and yet still so very easy drinking.

Sweet, delicate orange citrus aroma. Strong citrus and yeast taste. Cuddly orange color with consistent carbonation. Thin white lace top. Beautiful beer

2 bouteilles de 375 ml dégustées lors d’une dégustation entre amis. Arôme: Légère odeur de citron et de pomme verte. Apparence: La couleur est orange opaque. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût de citron sûrette avec une pointe d’abricot et de brett. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement vineuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. (Rating #5483)

UPDATED: DEC 22, 2014 My Bottom Line:
Lemongrass and tangerine-like spicy fruitiness pervades this Sour Ale’s dusty funk while soft effervescence provides high drinkability.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam covers the misty gold.
-Souring bacteria don’t overwhelm drinkability, which I appreciate.
-Tartness levels are high enough to produce a little zing and moderate enough to make you want another sip quickly.
-This reminds me of some of Jolly Pumpkin’s best efforts (minus the carbonation).

Bottles.

Appearance is cloudy light golden with a minimal foam cap that fades quickly. Aroma is a funky mix of brett, barnyard, and apple. Taste is sweet, peppery malt with a biting tart acidity and brett character. Mouthfeel is light with low carbonation. Finishes with a refreshing, crisp, dry tartness that lingers on the tongue

cpetrone84 (1810) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 15, 2014
Pour is a hazed bright amber with a white bubbly head. Nose is lactic, light soap, tart lemon with moderate oakiness. Taste strong oak, lactic notes and faintly soapy. Very dry, tart lemon finish and biting on the tongue, thin in back. The strong soap with the lactic acid and assertive barrel don’t mesh well.

Torrefacto (1790) - Madrid, SPAIN - FEB 14, 2014
Color cobrizo pálido, algo tupido, con espuma blanca densa y de burbuja fina. Aromas de uva, manzana verde, hierba seca, madera. En boca es fresca y ligera pero muy compleja con un inicio ácido y afrutado muy equilibrado que da paso a los toques de madera y hierba algo mas secos. El regusto, sin embargo, es de uva. Excelente.

Quickly learning that any time you can get your hand on a Crooked Stave, you better do it. No exception here. Nice grain filled nose with hints of grass and oak. Flavors are tart for a saison, but still nice and grassy, lightly hopped and a beautifully polite oak touch at the finish. Yum!
