4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
11/14/12. 750mL bottle thanks to Lukaduke - thanks, man! After popping the cap, the foam slowly starts to rise to the top - but we had glasses handy. Hazy golden pour with a big off-white head that cuts but laces plenty. Nice funky, lightly tart aroma with plenty of lemon and a bit of wood. Really nice flavor with more funky tartness, lemon, citrus, funk, yeast, a bit of wood, and touches of pale malts and grass. Tasty and drinkable - I would drink the shit out of this if it were near me and cheap. I shared this with a few other people and they agreed it was tasty and they were going to seek out other beers from this brewery. Thanks, Luke!

Bottle split at Jack The Sipper leaves for the FBI again tasting, big thanks to Leighton, 14/07/15.
Lightly hazed golden blonde with a moderate off white cap.
Nose is light herbals, spice, straw, citric peel, melon.
Taste comprises bitter orange, wood trace, tangerine, straw, melon, subtle barrel, farmy.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close.
Decent enough saison, not sure the barrel does much for it though?

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ The Clerkenwell Share. Thanks to whoever brought this along! Gold pour with a small white head. Nose is pretty sweet and fruity. Peach orchard. Apricot and nectarine fruit salad. Tangy fruit skin. Taste is has some wind barrel character. Lightly tart. A hint of booze. Some cheese/strawberry that I usually associate with sorachi ace. Plum and lemon zest. Very soft carbonation makes the beer feel a bit leaden on the palate. Interesting, but all over the place.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, thanks to my Uncle Gaines for sharing this with me. Pours a lightly hazy straw with a medium sized white head that lasts. Nose is funky, light hops, but more funky than hoppy, very akin to Green Flash Rayon Vert or Stillwater Premium with some age. Light oak, lots of brett. Really enjoyable and easy drinking. Even my parents loved it and they dont ususally like the funk.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of light malts, hints of tartness, some light fruity notes, and some notes of oak. Flavor the same with a nice blend. Average texture. A decent beer but not as good as some of the other Oxbow beers.
