2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Something may be off with this bottle. Aroma is lemon pledge chemicals possibly acetone or some such thing but when mixed with the tart lemony flavors comes off really odd. Acrid and hard to drink but it smells ok.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Milky looking, orange & burnt golden body with a creamy off-white head. Aroma of damp hay, tart lemons, lots of yogurt & some mild lacto notes. Mineral flavor with lots of spicy yeast, farmhouse dampness, lacto yeast, tart lemon, light apple, & some strange funky spices in the finish. Semi-creamy body that could use a little more carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from bottle to glass. Hazy golden hue with fizzy white head. Aroma is straw, honey, lemon, peppercorn, earthy, slight funk. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium light body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry throughout with a nice peppery astringentness in the following and a clean finish. Overall this is an enjoyable brew.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
"Definitely more wild than saison. Saision might be what this started as, but it’s got all kinds of cantillon cheesy funky sourness going on. Light in body, but not aroma or flavor. First foray into Block 15...hope it won’t be the last.

4.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a medium golden color with a couple finger of fizzy white foam. Lots of dusty oak, vinous fruit and complexities of cedar, lime and citrus zest on the nose. Palate is a bit more murky than the nose leads you on to expect but still contains great flavors of grapefruit pith, complex rustic malts, cobwebs, bitter grass, rounded honey sweetness balances out the acidity level in the finish.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle labeled "Ferme de la Ville Provision" thanks to nate321, thanks a lot Nate! Pours a nice golden with a lot of bubbles that provide an eternal white head that leave some lacing. Nose is of flowers, fruits and nice brett aromatics. Taste is fruity and really lightly tart and offers some nice fruity flavors along with some fresh cereals. Finish is dry and herbal. Carbonation was a bit intense for my liking, body light. This is a really good saison, yo. A nice surprise!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
brilliant gold with a lasting foamy white head. Tons of brett, more citrus than sulfur, lightly peppery esters, gum hints in the sweet finish. Controlled and expressive without being flawed or extreme, fizzy body accents bitterness and brett dominance.
