Swingtop bottle thanks to lukaduke. It was for our agreed IP trade. Many thanks! Reads "Batch # 6" on the side. Luke had told me this had been aged in both bourbon, and blueberry wine barrels. Awesome! I can definitely taste a vague blueberry character by finish. It pours a sandy light orange with a soapy whitish head, two fingers in length. Aromas of lavender, pickled pears, Italian sweet pepper, refined sugar, tin, algae, lactic acid, artichokes, limeade, and wood. Tastes delightfully tarted, earthy, and bittersweet... much like a gueze. Has an interesting seawater bite by swallow, accompanied with dandelions and grape must. As many have mentioned, this has a dry texture. I liked this this.

Initial bottle at Three Penny Taproom. Huge thanks to Lukaduke for also sharing a bottle later that evening. Pours a clear golden color with very nice carbonation and a good eggshell head. Sticky lacing. The nose carries a distinct saison profile underneath a bit of acidity and a good dose of funk. The flavor brings the acidity more to the front. This immediately reminded me of some of the De La Senne saisons blended with lambic. Fairly similar to some batches of Saison Vautour as well. Hay, lemon, straw, faint grain, and earthy funk all blend incredibly well with the backing acidity. Body is light and very crisp. Smooth lactic finish. Very inviting. An excellent beer.
