Somebody gave me a bottle of homebrew saison and it tastes f'n sour as hell, like an infection. It also poured 95% foam into the glass. I looked at the BJCP guide and it said "optional sour character" but this is overwhelming.
A saison may be sour, but overt sourness is not a desireable trait in saisons. The "infection" may have been intentional (if not graceful). On the other hand, he may have brewed a whit and got an infection and called it a saison, thinking he could pull it off.
Yea the Saisons i've had in the past have been very similary to a malty tripel, and not overly sour. Maybe a slight tartness. The gusher = infection IMO.
