Bottle thanks to tectactoe for sharing. Aroma is huge lemon candy with light brett, light yogurt and tropical fruit. Tastes awesome. So smooth. Great balance of lemon-y sweet tarts, brett, yogurt, stone fruit, and hay. Big tartness in the finish. Balanced, delicious and crushable.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 mL bottle. Batch 3. Originally reviewed 6/28/2013.
Golden orange. A little hazy. Big white head that leaves a bit of lacing and large surface wisps.
Aroma has Earthy notes, akin to brett, without ever being bretty. Lemon zest. Wheat grain. Wine and a hint of acidity.
Strong white wine flavor. Much more acidic, but not sour. Grainy. Bright lemon tang. White wine lingers in the aftertaste.
Light, but the flavors linger well on the palate. Well carbonated.
Lacking the complexity of the other barrel aged saisons, but still the barrel adds a great deal. I’ve learned to appreciate its simplicity, though.

Bottle: The aroma consists of light-moderate florals, lemon, lemon peel, and faint sweet tarts. It’s a hazy dull golden-orange with a small white head that fades to a minimal film outlined by a thin ring. The flavor starts with a quick dose of tart citrus. The finish has light-moderate lemon, sweet tarts, and a touch of funk. It’s light bodied with light-moderate carbonation.

Hazy golden colour, white head. Spicy aroma, vanilla, sour lactic acid, somewhat musty. Sweetish flavour, sour, quite spicy, peach notes. Bit herbal finish, light sweetnes, spices. Cool to have drunk batch #1, but think it was a bit on the old side.
