UPDATED: MAY 21, 2014 Bière unique en son genre de couleur orangés. Nez sure de cuir. En bouche vin blanc,pomme,cuir, bonne acidité. Une bière très savoureuse qui selon moi cache mal son taux tout de meme bas en alcool. Pas mon type de bière mais excellente!

Golden pour. Nice frothy white head (I say that a lot). Aroma- man I want to swim in this, lemon, grass, white wine grape, vinous..lovely. Taste, lots of saison like character at first, nice mild hops, grains, and then comes the wine barrel, slight sour, sweet, oak, very refreshing and crisp and extremely well put together. Theses guys are killing it! Really nice beer.

Wow!!!!! Excellent!!! Coup de coeur!! Une bière sublime qui goûte les fruits d’été tels que les abricots, les pêches et les poires. Une bière assez acidulée avec un bon houblon sans trop grande amertume. Un vrai délice!

Medium to full body with a tingly texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sour & sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet & sour finish of moderate to long duration.
