My Bottom Line:
Citrus fruit splashes and air-filled haystacks whip up a tart and refreshing Wild Saison.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the hazy blond.
-The flavor intensity isn’t through the roof, which I appreciate.
-Citrus fruitiness is redolent of starfruit and lemon.
-Drinkability is extremely high.

Gold pour with a white head. This is a very oaky and tart saison. Not overly sour but the oak is the star. Has a lot of flavors similar to Feral One...just less sour. Really really good.

Bottle. Bangin’ sour saison. Fruity brett flavors and some hops come through -- or am I crazy? Whatever is going on, it’s wonderful. Plenty of tasty oak. Also, do any beers pour more beautiful than the sour line from Barrelworks? Deeply rich, complex and full of charm. I wish I had a hundred of these. This bottle has been aging just around a month but is significantly better than I remember it on tap at / in a bottle right after the release.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Corked and caged bottle courtesy of Doug. Thanks! Pours mostly clear yellow with lots of bubbles headed to be top and a one finger white head. Tart lemon peel aroma, hay, grass, oak, maybe a hint of sweet honey or apricot. Flavor is less tart than the aroma, some lightly tart Brett, bready malts, yeast funk, grassiness, light hop notes, and some citrus fruits. A nice vanilla oak presence in the taste. Very light bodied, plenty of carbonation, goes down easy. A nice balance of tartness, funk, and bready malts. Good stuff.

Hazy orange amber pour at Good Dog during a FW event. Much brighter and sharper than the original "Opal" and more thirst-quenching. Dark amber fruits. Yellow plums. Tangerines. Heart of palm. Key lime pie. Mango skin. Passionfruit. Bamboo. Nice tinge of sour. Lots of drying oak tannins. Like a lot!
