From the brewer

Owen is a table strength saison kettle and dry-hopped with Mosaic, and package conditioned with Brettanomyces Claussenii. It opens with aromas of ripe papaya and subtle pineapple. The tropical character continues on the palate with complementary notes of rose petals and mineral water. High attenuation and a lean base of Pilsner malt and torrified wheat combine to create an incredibly dry beer with a snappy finish. Serve as an aperitif or try with ceviche.

Who's been drinking this

A hopped sour; the sourness is not overt but is a dry, woody back-of-the-throat tanginess with some bitter Brett funk. All of that is right at the end. Hints of muscat grape or green apple? Clean and champagne-effervescent. I really, really liked this.
