Bottle shared at RBSG. The beer is a hazy yellow with a big white head. Pickle and vegetable with spicy acidic. Medium body and medium carbonation. Sour pickles come through hard in this one. BeerandBlues2 (13825) - Escondido, California, USA - DEC 22, 2016
Bottle at home. Pours cloudy pale yellow with a medium, thick creamy white head, long retention with good lacing. Aroma is moderate lactic and citric sourness, light cracker malt, lemon and white grapes. Flavor is moderate citric and lactic acid, tart lemon and white grapes, crisp cracker malt, quite puckering with a dry finish. Light body and moderate carbonation.

On tap at the Boise brewery Milky murky pale yellow/white. Thin dense white head. Mild soft lacto aroma. Softly tart flavors, lemon and sour apples. Bre Berlinner than Saison but very tasty. Listed on the board as 5.6% pinkzambia (2073) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 10, 2016
Growler: Cloudy pale gold. Creamy feel that seems connected to the sourdough. Fruity with grapes and apples. Smooth and tasty! I loved this. muzzlehatch (4969) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 22, 2016
22 ounce bottle from Brennan’s Market in Monroe, WI, served at cellar temp in a Duvel glass. Massive fine-bubbled smooth white head recedes slowly, leaving thick intricate lacing above a very cloudy pale gold body...nose does indeed indicate sourdough bread/yeasty, as well as tart apples, or more precisely tart apples being cooked into sauce, and perhaps a bit of bubblegum, and, faintly, sauerkraut - it’s intense and a bit odd but to my nose fairly lovely...on the tongue, fairly tart for a saison, but not so much so that I’d call it a "sour ale", and it’s dry enough though there is a bit of citric sweetness and acidity in the middle, and it actually grows quite acidic by the finish...full mouthfeel, lively carbonation. A strange beer and one that I would imagine purists will hate; my own feeling is largely positive though I do think the tart/sour is just a bit much.

Draft a couple times recently at the Boise taproom... Pours light hazed yellow with a sudsy but short lived white head... Nose is doughy wheat with bright lactic lemony note... flavor mirrors the aroma perfectly... Nothing is overdone, this is fairly drinkable... Interesting concept and well executed.

cloudy bright yellow tan lots of dense foam. Aroma apples grapes. tastes lots of bread character. a bit thick. A bit of fermented tomato like cocktail sauce. stevoj (5592) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 19, 2016
Draft at WE taproom. Milky pour, leans towards a sour/wild. Creamy head, tart, lemony aroma. Taste also is quite tart, but a bit of bread, biscuits after the tart blast. A bit tart for a Saison, but underlying body is there.
