MartinT (7811) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 16, 2014
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.

Bottle.

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.

Ontape (305) - Valley Village, California, USA - JUN 15, 2014
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.

From the bottle, pale yellow, quickly dissipating head. Aroma is funky and fruity, taste has wine notes, fruity and a nice dry finish.

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.

NikkTwist (1631) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 7, 2014
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!

CBC Session 4. Lightly hazy gold beer, small white head. Palate is light and airy. Light fine carbonation. Little vanilla oak, nice generic dried fruits. Light dry finish. Hangs together well.
