3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very vinous and a bit oxidized. It’s a bit to heavy vinous for my taste. Still a decent beer.

35cl bottle. Hazy orange pour with a thin white head. Smells like brett, unripe grapes, grapefruit, barnyard funk. Bitter and crisp, refreshing, with notes of apple cider, vinegar, unripe grapes and a very small amount of funk in the background.

This is truly a great barrel aged saison! The complex flavor of oak, funk, and citrus sweetness blend together so well. It has a great balance of tartness and sweetness that makes for a very refreshing beer.

Bottle. Pours a light hazy orange with a medium white head. Aromas of sweet esters, oaky sweet notes, citrussy, lemon zesty, some sweet green grapes, light moldy. Taste is tarter- citrussy, lemon zest, orange peel, some stone fruits, oaky sweetness, light saison yeast, once again a sweet vinous note in the back. Reminds me of a dessert wine mixed with a tart saison. Darn nice!

Bottle picked up at HF. Pours a clear somewhat pale yellow with an off white head. Nice tartness with a moderate amount of sour, some light funk, oak, lemon zest, yeast. Moderate+ carbonation and moderate body, fades on the finish but enjoyable overall.

Bottle @home. Haze golden. Small head. Citrus barnyard medium funky. Smooth well balanced oak to sour fruits. Bone dry and the best in my palate from the Staves yet.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
0.375 l bottle from Firma Bier. Deep golden color. Tart, acidic and perfumed aroma with raspberry, sour cherries, lemon and citrus pith. Acidic lemon and sour cherry taste upfront with grainy, phenolic and woody notes in the background. Excellent acidity, sharp enough but still quite drinkable. Fairly low carbonation. Despite the acidity mouthfeel is oily and smooth. Reminds gueuze but is softer and more drinkable.
