4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Shared at an Ann Arbor get together at Jeff’s on July 20. 750 mL bottle. The pour is a cloudy bright golden yellow with a thick white head that lingers as a dense cap. The aroma is full of funk. There is a nice barnyard dustiness to it and a light spiciness. The lemongrass and wheatiness really shines through. The flavor is just as good. Lots of spice and funk. A musty barnyard leads into a great dried citrus zest and carry out to a nice hay controlled finish. The mouth feel is light and crisp with a bright carbonation and a lingeringly wheaty, funky, spicy aftertaste. This is a lot better than I thought it would be going in.

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

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

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.
