Just an outstanding beer. Tartness is light but evident. Slight Saison aroma but not as funky as Vielle. Very drinkable and now one of my favorites.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Enjoyed on tap at Crooked Stave Taproom in Denver, CO while on vacation. Appearance is a juice like cloudy dark gold with a prominent white head. Aroma smells tart with notes of oak, light stinky cheese. Taste is overly sour in the best way possible with a fantastic crisp malt finish that nicely lingers for at least two seconds. I haven't had a beer like this in a while that knocks you back after first sip. At first I thought it was my least favorite of my sampler offerings but now I think it's my most favorite. Great stuff!

Bottle at home. Hazy golden with a lasting white head. Malty aroma of bread and fresh grain, with funk, citrus and medicinal phenols. Sweet and tart fruity and yeasty flavour with phenols and a touch of popcorn

On tap at the Source. Surette
Opaque orange gold with a funky tart aroma that wasn’t for me at first but softened as it warmed. The taste is acidic lemon, tart with funk, spice and wheat. Pretty good stuff.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.375l bottle. Slightly murky golden body, white head. Aroma of lemon zest, cheese, vinegar and apple juice. Taste of apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, yeast and some floral hops. Sour and funky at the same time. Has way more in common with the gueuzes than the saisons. Nice though.

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.
