COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Farmhouse Ale which was aged 5 months in a Terra d’Oro Amador Zinfandel barrel. This Saison is a light Belgian Ale with subtle fruit notes and a slightly tart, dry finish. A perfect style to receive the color, fruit, oak and wine character, given by 5 months in the Amador barrel. This is an exciting example of how beer and wine can achieve beautiful harmony together.

6% on tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear gold with fluffy white head that leaves light lace. Aroma is sweet grapes, bready grain, and vanilla from the oak. Taste follows, sweet and not so much funky. Medium body and soft carbonation, kind of under impressed.

5 Seasons Saison ale "aged in a Terra d’Oro Zinfandel barrel" for 4 (5?) months, then served in a tulip glass> A very fine looking beer! The rosy-amber body has lots of fine-grained carbonation. The head is perfectly proportioned, dense, and appears to have picked up a touch of rose coloring from the barrel. Great retention and rings of lacing. Aroma: floral, yeasty, wine barrel, sweet, ripe banana, oaky. Complex but messy. Better flavor. Very rich and complex with a rather strong contribution from the barrel. Lightly sweet and tart. Feel: excellent, with soft but lively carbonation that seems just right for the medium body. O: well executed, barrel-aging upgrade.

Pours a barely translucent dark golden amber with a thick, fine-bubbled, pale golden buff head. Malty aroma has a strong overtone of wine and oak, obviously from the wine barrels. Flavor has a firm overtone of wine-soaked wood, which actually complements the malt and other fruitiness quite well. It’s almost like drinking wine. Smooth texture has plenty of fizz, though body is so-so. I think this is a one-and-done deal, which is too bad as it’s a winner.
