Pours a medium golden yellowish color. Aromas of fruit, yeast and some pepper. Flavors are sour, yeasty, and a touch of sweetness at the finish.

Sampled at The Festival 2015 in St. Petes with Vinny. Pours a hazy golden body with white lace. Mouthfeel is medium to light bodied with notes of sour berries, yeast, spice, acid, sweet candies and funk character.

PhillyCraft (8041) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 22, 2015
Sampled at the Festival with Dad, pours hazy golden with average top. notes resemble sweet tart candy, also some tamarind, berries, and other slightly acidic funk. Light to medium.

My Bottom Line:

Very dry and bubbly, this compelling creation shares tropical fruitiness and its acidity piercing through yeasty funk for truly refreshing moments.

Further Personal Perceptions:

-A veil of foam tops the hazy sunshine yellow.

-The acidic kick is a tad acetic, but its dosage is perfect.

-This is perfect for the Florida heat.

-Expansive carbonation works wonderfully with the flavour profile and dryness.

-The juicy citrus fruit (tamarind, I guess) works great with the bacteria.

Bottle... Hazy yellow pour with a small, white, quickly dissipating head. The aroma is a collection of fruity, herbal, musty, dusty and funky notes. Medium-bodied with busy carbonation. The flavor is sour and fruity with a light splash of red wine vinegar and a mild herbal component. Short, sour, acetic finish.

Top of the cork says 2013, but hey this tastes and smells great. Let’s do this. Rcvd in trade, thank you Damian.
Poured into a tulip.
The appearance was a gentle looking hazy yellowed orange color with a slim quarter finger white head that dissipated within less than thirty seconds.
The smell had a nice funky and somewhat sour but still a settling sweet citrus (grapefruit/mango/lemon rind and lemon) backed up by a light spice.
The taste was sharp fresh citrus sweetness over coating a light spice. There’s a nice citrusy sweet refreshing like but not watery aftertaste. I didn’t get any finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a pretty good sessionability about this one. The carbonation comes across fairly smooth. I didn’t mind that it was lighter than most saisons as it created a very nice refreshing quality to this beer.
Overall, are all of Saint Somewhere’s beers this good? If so, I need to make an appearance to this fine brewery some day as this was an exceptional beer more than worthy of having again.

Bottle at Spinrsx’s tasting via Luke. Light golden ale with some off white head, some pepper, lemon rind, grassy, dry, light. High carbonation, mild+ body, refreshing, nicely balanced with some sourness and a slight funk, ends with a bit of tart. I quite liked this.

Lubiere (14196) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 30, 2014
A hazed golden saison with a thin white head. In aroma, sweet fruity malt with grassy character, wild weed, light solvent notes, OK. In mouth, a sweet fruity malt with smooth sour apple, lemon, very nice. Bottle from Luke’s, tasted at Spinrsx tasting.

From Matt. Thanks!

A: Golden straw, very little head. Some bubbles and decent legs.

N: Tamarind, lemon, earth, manure, yeast. Glue and overripe orange.

T: Sour eary yeast. Very little sugar or yeast. Distinct...

M: Light, well carbed. Traces of acidity - no alcohol.

O: I don’t think I’m a fan of tamarind. This is unbridled sourness, and while that might work for a tasting, it’s not a bottle for one.
