Draft on tap at Redlight Redlight (Orlando, FL). Nice rare tick here. Pours a nice hazy golden amber hue, well hazed with frothy whitish head that frothys and laces well. A bit darker in the bosy, dulled golden glow. Aromas are white grape, a touch tannic, gentle tartness, kiss of lemon, white grape, and gentle sugary element. Straw, gentle yeast, and mellow lotion. Herbal, earthy. Initial is medium bodied, a touch sticky, with melon, some sugar, bready, mellow tartness. Middle is a touch more sticky, bready and mellow dough. Some yeastiness, spice, mellow fruity esters. A bit dry and prickly, mellow yeast, gentle spice. A bit sweet, faint toasty malt and straw. Nice beer, a bit sweet at times. Nice aromas and touch of tartness. Solid.

The aroma is sweet and sour with both fruity and funky. There is definitely a grape must in it. The appearance is hazy gold with an average head for the style. The taste is like the aroma with sourness up front and complex maltiness in the finish. The palate is typical for the style. Overall this is a decent beer but not my favorite thing.

There is an overpowering amount farmhouse tasty and aroma. It has that musty flavor that it hard to miss, a mild tart taste due to the grapes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750mL from Tipples in Gainesville, FL. $11. Low haze golden pour. Medium white head. Okay lacing. Mild, slow gusher upon opening. Nose is mild white vinegar, mild funk, big abbey Tripel esters of pear and yellow apple, fresh oranges. Taste is salty, mild white vinegar, a bit of alcohol warming for saison, some malt and sugar density, fresh oranges, mild honey. Tangy, mildly citric and lactic finish. Interesting, would like less body and less alcohol for this style.

wedgie9 (2702) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 10, 2013
Tasted on 2/9/13 from a corked and caged 750mL bottle from the Rare Beer Club. Pours murky orange with a very thick off-white head that slowly recedes to thick and rocky lace. The nose is classic spicy saison yeast with a bit of an added malty note and a hint of grape juice. The flavor is much the same, with the sweetish grape juice and candi sugar malt flavor up front, moving to the very spicy yeast and nicely bitter hops flavors. The body is medium with very lively, overactive, carbonation, and a long spicy yeast and bitter hops finish.
