This brew is our regular Saison aged in french oak red wine barrels for 8 months with brettanomyces and lactobaccilus. The end result? A mixed flavor of tart/sour and fruit.

Poured a copper color with a bit of white head. Cabernet wine and brett yeast funk-tart aroma. The flavor is fantastically complex...lightly tart with a peach and wine edge. Really an outstanding beer. Notes: On cask at the brewery and the 2013 Birmingham brewfest

Bottle thanks to Seth. Pours a cloudy yellow orange with small white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is tannic pineapple and oak. Medium mouth with strong brett, juicy pineapple, oak, very nice.

Plurged and went for their barrel aged series bottles. And I most certainly made the right choice. Fantastically tart saison with wonderful barrel notes. Tart sour cherries, red wine, oak, brett, fruitiness. Dry and lasting tart finish. Whoa.

Everything about this beer is amazing. Nice brett funk and a beautifully tart/sour beginning and finish. Slight sweetness from fresh saison blended with the 1.5yr barrel aging.

Draft at Brewery. Light amber/copper with little to no head. Aroma of fruit and tartness. Light body with notes of vanilla and oakyness and a tart finish.

Pours gold. Sour cherry and oak aroma and slight grain. Cereal malt and slight Brett funk and fruit. Nice sourness on the finish.

Draft. Poured a hazy deep gold with a medium-sized fluffy white head. Aroma was some tropical fruit, slight funk. Flavor was light peach, apple, tropical fruit, mild funk, mild sourness, medium sweetness, wood, vanilla, vinous. Thick mouthfeel. Quite good but a little too sweet and thick for my taste; not enough bretty funk. I suspect the oak aging might suppress the brett a bit.
