ctipping (549) - Florida, USA - NOV 19, 2015
750 mL bottle. Originally reviewed 10/6/2014. Murky and hazy orange. Medium white head. Lots of lacing and a thick collar. Aromas of stone fruits and some citrus. Some wine barrel. Lots of yeast. A bit of a mineral character. Taste is stone fruit and more wine flavor. Pale malt is stronger here. Yeasty and pushing a bit sweet before the finish. Mineral character is strong and it has kind of a rotten fruit flavor in the finish. Medium body. Not as light as I was expecting. Medium carbonation. Not as impressed as I normally am by Side Project saisons. It’s got a weird aftertaste.

Travlr (17716) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 24, 2014
Bottle. Hazy golden straw color. Nice aroma od dusty overripe fruit. Taste has deeply sour, funky, peppery, dusty haystacks and summer fruit. Delicious.

Lukaduke (2793) - Gray, Maine, USA - NOV 28, 2014
Bottle shared thanks to JBPortland. Pours a hazy straw yellow color with a finger of gaseous foam. Nose is tannic oak, foggy grain, citrus and paraffin wax. Palate follows with some nice layers of rustic grain, foggy wet horse blanket, lemon pith and a lingering minerality that carries the flavors out nicely but certainly not the best offering from Side Project.

JBPortland (1294) - Portland, Maine, USA - NOV 24, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 25, 2014 750ml bottle pours semi clear pale brown orange with a finger of head. Nose is a lot of rubber and some plastic, some funk and acidity and soft earthy cirtus, but unfortunately the nose is just weird, there’s no way around it...the taste makes up with juicy earthy rustic stonefruit, touches of toasty grain, some nice light oak funk, still some hints of rubber. Finishes dry with some light bready fruit funk and pretty nicely balanced acidity. Overall more that I liked about it than disliked but some weird elements for sure.

50belair (3083) - Florida, USA - OCT 7, 2014
Bottle shared by Collin. Cloudy burnt orange pour with a white head. Mild fruity aromas. Tart but wonderful fruity and citrus notes. Soft on the plate with just enough maltiness to combat the sour berry notes. Complex with a good mouthfeel and body.

decaturstevo (5613) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - OCT 2, 2014
Hazed yellow/brown pour with clean white head and lace. Aroma is a touch of fruity esters and sour funk. Sweet start goes straight to a barnyard funk with some fruity esters and spiciness. Meidum bodied with good carbonation. a nice unique flavor and aroma

Tasted on 2/8/14 from a 750mL bottle at the RBWG Grand Tasting, big thanks to phaleslu for sharing!!! Pours cloudy pale orange with a thin white head that recedes to a thin collar of lace. The nose is tart lemon peel with tons of brett funk, light bread, and traditional spicy saison yeast. The flavor is more lacto sour with a lot of brett funk, and the same lightly bready spicy yeast. The body is medium, lightly tannic, with light carbonation and a long tart and hugely funky finish.
