4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
375 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Originally reviewed 6/10/2014.
Hazy deep orange. Small white head. A little leggy with some lacing.
Orange and grassy hop aroma. Light acidity. White wine.
Taste is very hoppy. Orange and grassy hops. White wine is much sharper. Oak. Tartness builds and dies off quickly.
Medium light body. Well carbonated.
Reminiscent of Juicy. I like the wine barrel and level of hoppiness.

Bottle. Quite explosive so be careful...cloudy orange with an off white film. Epson salts, minirally, pepper, lemon, extra dry, leather and some hay, mixed mild citrus, moderate carbonation and strong body, some chardonnay and an acidic ending.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Drank on my birthday last year. From the backlog. Hazy peach pour. Pineapples, zebra stripe gum (you know what I’m talking about!), peach nectar, and really vibrant lactic acidity. Cheese cloth brett. Perfume and orchids. Guava, passion fruit, mango. Lots going on with this one. Like a antelope in the Sahara- getting attacked by lions from multiple angles. Except the lions are delicious. If I had more, I would drink it until I became fat.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
After drinking CD12 this beer reinstilled my faith in this series. Poured into a tulip glass a hazy pale peach color with light white head. Aroma is stone fruit, oaky vanilla, honey, citrus, and light white wine. Taste is moderate tartness and tons of stone fruit. Really a joy to drink this.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Poured a hazy golden color ale with a medium white head with light retention. Aroma of funky yeast with vinous notes is quite interesting. Taste is a mix of vinous notes with some citrusy notes and some barnyard notes. Body is about average with good carbonation. I really enjoyed the barnyard notes in this one but I would prefer it even more if the acidity was more subdued.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
bottle thanks to Matt, thanks!
Aroma, lightly subdued fresh malts, grapefruit, currants, tangerines.
Pours a light gold with a merange white head.
Taste is simply amazing, this is a nuance blend, not so much in your face but the incredible compexity is there between citrus fruits, leathery musty basement flavors and brett. Perfect balance.
One of the best beers, I love these barrel aged saisons man. Completely lapping the rest of the field.
Hopefully that is enough so that the tyrant AKA Adam Jackson won’t delete this.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle, 05/11/2015. Pours a clear golden amber, small pillow of a head fades to a haze on the surface leaving soapy lacing. Funk and fruit up front in the aroma with apricot, mango, grassy barnyard notes and citrus with sour dry-hopped notes. Taste of grapefruit and lemon, mild tartness with nice funk, wood, and hop bitterness in the finish. Light body, not overly carbonated. Really nice, reminiscent of fresh Iris.
