Leighton (22555) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2016
Draft at the brewery taproom during the 2016 RBWG tour. Pours cloudy yellow-gold with a slight, foamy white head. Tangy citrus in the nose, tangerine, lemon, mild funk. Light sweet flavour with a dry pale wood note, more lemon, some grapefruit, nectarine. Light bodied with average carbonation. Sharply acidic on the finish, with notes of lemon juice, drying oaky notes. Not bad overall.

Golden orange pour w little head. A little on the simple side for them - all about the grapefruit and sour acidity, which the fruit adds to. Still good, just not great, as are many of their beers.

Ok sour.

phaleslu (10748) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 21, 2016
Draft at the brewery. Pours a hazy pale gold color with pretty much no head. Notes of lemon and lime citrus up front, pretty acetic, with sharp fresh oak, and eventually the grapefruit. A wee bit of underlying saison funk and dry cobwebs. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a very sour, acetic mouthfeel for a saison, in keeping with the house character.

joeneugs (6372) - Livermore, California, USA - FEB 20, 2016
On tap at the Hop Grenade. It pours a pale yellow color with a small, dissipating white head. The aroma has some stone fruit, mostly peach and mango with some grapefruit. A little vanilla-like oak. The flavor is super puckering. Lots of grapefruit...much more than the aroma with hints of oaky vanilla. Massive puckering acidity that’s kind of bracing on the palate, but nothing really off. Just bright, clean citric acid. A bit much for me though. I could’ve used a bit more brewers yeast complexity. No off flavors. Refreshing, once you get past the twitch inducing sourness.
