After Saison du Fermier had been fermented in and aged in Chardonnay barrels for several months, we inoculated one barrel with wild Missouri yeast and bacteria and continued the oak-aging. This added deep layers of complexity and soft, rounded oak nuances to Oude Fermier. This old farmhouse ale was aged for 18 months before its release.

750ml batch 1 bottle 129/150. Hazy yellow. Sour lemon, a little funk, some Brett barnyard, oak. Less sour, less acidic, more barnyard yeasty, than the regular saison fermier (b2). Pretty good but I liked the regular one better.

hopscotch (10017) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 3, 2014
Bottle... RBSG 2014… Pours cloudy and straw-colored with a small, creamy, white head that hangs around a good while. The bouquet is both fruity and funky, offering heaps of fuzzy fruits and white oak. Medium to full-bodied and creamy with soft carbonation. The flavor is juicy, fruity and lightly sour. Loads of stone fruit – apricot, plum - and white oak. Yeasty, tart, fuzzy-fruit finish.

phaleslu (7386) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 30, 2014
Pour from a bottle at Perennial on the RBSG bus tour. Pours a hazy pale yellow-gold with a small white head. This one is gorgeous: notes of lemon citrus, white grapes, herbs (lemongrass in particular), hay, earth, fresh pears, oak, vanilla, and some musty funk. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a tart, funky, dry mouthfeel. Outstanding. Really hoping to try this one again soon.

Another wine barrel saison for these guys that like the others reveals light fruits, wine character, lemon, medicinal, funky finish.
