3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750mL Bottle. Thanks for sharing Ari! Aroma gives a floral, almost soapy fruit and spice flow. Softer, subtler presentation on the palate. A light tang, followed by some piquant spice. I appreciate the restraint, with spices, fruit, and base marrying well without too much screaming from one element. Intertwined is a good idea.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 bottle hand carried home from the brewery by my buddy Adrien. Hazy orange gold color with a bubbly white head. Aroma is heavy on the white wine, with nice notes of dried apricots. The flavor is extremely well integrated. Mild hay, barnyard, again dried apricots, nice light lingering white wine hints, weak Brett hints. Very nice.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slight cloudiness from the yeast, light golden yellow 2 finger tight creamy head. The nose is great. Tart, saison very yeasty, grape skins and very wheat forward. smells a little tart. Pretty yeast, almost no tartness but there is brett funk. some sulfur and faint rotten model tastes but the creaminess and apricot forward funkiness is really nice. I don’t get a lot of wine or oak.

750ml bottle, big thanks to voodoofish65usf for sharing. Golden orange color. White particles in the body. Thin off-white head, some short ropes of lace. Awesome apricot, mildly peppery nose. Moderate sweet taste, light tart. Light spicy herbalness, good pepper and belgian yeast profile. Pretty nice stuff. Pepper seems to balance out the sweetness. Good balanced stuff.

Bottle shared at Dave’s Bachelor Party, 9/27/14. Thanks to whoever shared this.
I enjoyed this beer quite a bit. The fruity flavors and the barrel aging worked extremely well together. I found the aroma to be the standout component. Really quite an excellent brew.
