thome50 (1295) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - JAN 30, 2013
UPDATED: APR 14, 2013 Updated 4.14.2013 at Barrelworks. Was told this is "totally different" from previous batches. (New rate?) Pours a hazy golden with big white head. Aroma is funky with a cheese and pasture going on with a sour note. Taste is more funky cheese and barnyard, followed by a mild sour and then grain and a hard to pick up fruit bill. The sourness isn’t high on this one and the funk really makes up for it. Very much a different beer from what I remember. Old: Stone Sour Fest 2012 - Draft. pours a medium golden. Spice and an odd floral aroma, almost spruce. Very little barrel in the taste with more random spice and floral notes. Very similar to Saison du Buf but in a more spice forward way which seems hard to do.

Farmhouse, yeast, tarty lemon cheesecake, citrus fruits, lime. Slightly hazy gold, massive, creamy, white head. More bitter citrus fruits, sour lemon juice, acidic, soft carbonation, medium bodied. OK Saison, too sour for my taste. Keg at MBCC Yellow Session, Copenhagen.
