4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml in a Trip Karm glass. Beautiful Chardonnay driven oak on the nose. Nice balance of belgian yeast and hops, a little funk too on the palate. Very unique as I’ve experienced many chardonnay barrel aged brews, but none that showed as much chard as this one. Excellent.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Calling this a farmhouse beer.... Amber color with large bubbles. Aroma is wood like straight up french oak and oxidized apple sauce like you read about.... Taste is insanely oaky sweet amber ale with belgian candy sugar. This beer is really weird and tastes like oak aged apple and cardboard. Left half of the bottle unfinished at Asian restaurant.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear amber with a whitish head. Aroma of chardonnay, bubblegum, pear, and citrus. Taste is tart and a little spicy with some sweet and barrel elements and very wine-like. Medium bodied; very smooth and a little dry. Enjoyable, but not amazingly so.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Summer 2012 bottling #02213
From notes. Tasted on 12/9/12 from a 750mL bottle, thanks to Curtis for sharing. Pours muddy dark orange with an average off-white head that leaves average lace. The nose is banana and spicy yeast, bread malt, caramel, vanilla, and buttery chardonnay. The flavor is lightly sweet bread malt and caramel up front, with the same, nicely spicy saison and banana yeast, with vanilla and creamy chardonnay barrel. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long nutty, oaky buttery and saison spice finish.

Draft at Big Wood 2014. High carb, too much punch with the saison flavors. Sweet, thick... odd for these flavors.

The farmhouse post to shorten a barrel really gives a great funky taste. Unique.

Draft at Big Wood. Deep orange, yeasty, fruity. Body is sweet and rich. Farmhouse is muted, more sweet bw. alc builts. Tangy, grapefruit, not a standout.

Great aroma, cider like appearance. Can tell that it was aged in old oak chardonnay barrels.
