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.

A touch too sour, but otherwise this is a great AWA with really nice fruity character reminiscent of nectarine.

750 mL bottle. Hazy orange. Prominent oak and vanilla barrel aromas. Wine. Pale malt. Tastes a little tart. Oak is still strong. Malty sweetness that fades away as tartness builds into the finish. Stone fruit in the finish. Medium body. Excellent.

Bottle. Clear yellow pour with a white head. Mild sour lemon nose. Lemon and tangy citrus notes give way to wet hay and yeasty notes. A bit one dimensional. Good body and mouthfeel.

daknole (10872) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 9, 2015
Cloudy yellow color, puffy white head. Great funky beer! Quite a bit of barnyard funk, suede leather, wet hay, toothpick flavors from the oak, some lemony flavors.

bottle thanks to Dustin, this one I loved. Much bolder than the usual subtleties of side project. Heavy handed on the barnyard and funk. And its awesome. more leather, touch of smoke, etc.

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.

beernbourbon (1547) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - OCT 24, 2014
Bottle along side Batch 1 and 2, Abricot, and Peche. Pour Is pale yellow with with a larger white head. Aroma is musty and funky with light tart notes and light chardonnay notes. Flavor is woody then tart with smooth sweet hints and an earthy finish. Easily the most complex of the group and Really so good. Damn.
