No gush, cork says lot 10 086/477044. This thing fucking rules, dear lord I live 3 blocks from a shelf of these at 13.25 somebody stop me.
I opened one last night with no code to be found


9 months ago it was a totally different beer. to me it had classic saison notes; yeasty, just a touch herbal/hop. now everything is amplified. it's almost an indescribable fruit, I know strawberry juice gets thrown around, but it's not all that. seen candied orange peel mentioned, but the bitterness isn't pithy; it's more herbal. speaking of bitter, it's a nicely restrained herbal bitter bite that lingers throughout. so unique

I opened a personal white whale the other day with PocketPants911 (I also stole his photo for this post): Extra Sour.

It was pretty great. Beautiful color and carb. A little ciderishness on the nose but nothing too distracting. It wasn't very sour, which was perfectly fine with me. Bight and slightly tart. I thought it tasted kinda fruity, like a candied orange or something. Almost no trace of the 10%. Two ghost-thumbs way up.

More "classic" saison than previous bottles I've had. Peppery, slightly medicinal (camphor? benzocaine?), with a fruitiness (apple skins?) that just hovers, teasingly, around the edges, but never makes any real appearance.

I don't know if all my (?) says more about my shitty palate, or the mysteries of the 'Tome. Either way, I'm good with it.

Edit: apparently my image skills are as shitty as my palate. Don't care. Drowning my incompetence in the 2nd half of the Saison bottle.

Now this whole image thing is really bumming me out.
