Bottle shared much thanks to Scott. Pours out a cloudy, golden color with a small white head. Aroma is of earthy notes, citrus, some lemon. Taste is of some nice tartness, lemon grass, lingering fruity notes, mild funk. Lots going on for the lower ABV

On tap at 2012 Hill Farmstead Festival of Farmhouse Ales. Big funky lambic-like nose, with a nip of manure and a tiny hint of baby diaper. Very raw and horsey. I like it. Sour. The grapefruit acidity was intense and delicious. Finishes with some great floral qualities. The most sour beer I had at the festival. I love the complexity of this. It reminds me of the awesome lambic-Saison hybrid Fantome La Gourmand. My festival favorite.

Stine (1760) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 12, 2012
Every element of a perfect sour blonde is present in this sneaky, complicated saison. It’s bright and funky with all the tart-but-deep characteristics of wild yeasts; cherries, pineapple, vinegars, and dusty cheeses. The white wine flavor of the barrel seems to be a perfect complement to the so lightly spicy, brisk flavor of the wheat. Punchy but still somewhat soft palate, arresting in tartness but reticent and friendly in a slow finish; masterful.

dmac (5589) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - AUG 6, 2012
750 ml bottle shared by Scott at Deans poolside. Poured a hazy murky yellow body with a large dense foamy mostly white head. Aroma of dusty citrus, light wheat, some spice and pepper, funk and lemons. Medium to thinner bodied with softer carbonation and a slight sourness. Flavor runs very softly on the sour side of the spectrum, almost reminds me of a berlinerweiss, lemons and light wheat round this one out. Not getting a whole lot of the French oak that this was aged in.

Bottle shared at Muckfest III, no idea on the batch - Pours straw yellow, hazy with a foamy white head. Nose is light white pepper, dry spiciness, with light herbal and floral hopping. Taste is nice juicy tropical fruit, herbal hops, floral notes, with a soft, mineral finish. Smooth and bubbly carbonation--feels like velvet in the mouth. Excellent.

arminjewell (9256) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUL 4, 2012
Pour at Scott’s saison tasting, pour is hazy yellow with thin white head gusher out of bottle. Aroma brought notes of sour lemon with lactic acid notes, touch of white wine, flowers, grass, some honey, tart fruits and slightly funky and musty. Taste is nice sharp lemony lactic, hints of wine, tart fruits, touch of floral, honey and grass notes, touch of funk with a dry tart finish. Very, very tasty.

RoyalFlushing (326) - Mamaroneck, New York, USA - JUN 10, 2012
At Tria Fermentation, poured a hazy golden straw yellow with a small creamy white head and active carbonation. Aroma is wonderfully complex with notes similar to a fine oaky chardonnay including grass, golden delicious apples, pear, kiwi, and guava joined by slight dusty barnyard funk. First sip is clean and crisp with flavors of citrus and tart fruits, tangy lemon, grassy hops, and wonderful wheat grains. Exceptional mouthfeel with the carbonation dancing on the tongue and the flavors lingering on the palate. Best saison I’ve had to date.
