Yards Barrel-Aged Sour Saison

This was the second beer that I had at Yards at the recommendation of the server.

ABV: 6.5%

Style: Saison

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “You don’t have to go far to get away this summer. Our new taproom and brewery at 5th and Spring Garden Streets offers 20 taps of fresh, quality Yards ales and a full beer-friendly dining menu crafted by Chef Jim Burke. Get together with some friends and have a beer and a bite to eat outside in the shade of our towering steel brewing tanks. While you’re here, go on a tour to see for yourself how Yards beers are brewed, bottled, canned, and kegged for the good people of Philadelphia and beyond.”

Random: There is no information about this beer on the website since it’s a brewery only release.

The beer poured with a half a finger of white head. It dissipated almost instantly and left no lacing on the glass. The body was hazy and bright orange with some floaties visible. There was only light carbonation visible. The nose was filled with yeast along with some citrus and lots of oak and white grapes. The taste kicked in with some of the sour notes. It had white vinegar along with white grapes and oak. There was some vanilla as well as yeast. It had a light body with a lot of carbonation. The finish was quick, but had a lot of tartness to it. I liked this beer a lot and the addition of the oak added to the depth of it.

Untappd Rating: 4.0/5.0
