COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Saison du Ble is the harmony of a fluffy wheat Saison with Brettanomyces and Lactobacillus. The wheat balances a very dry body with a creamy, billowy mouthfeel and our house Saison yeast adds complexity and acidity. This farmhouse ale was aged in Chardonnay barrels for several months.

PhillyCraft (3101) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 13, 2014
Bottle cracked by Alan at Ryans tasting. Poured golden with beautiful head and light lace. Notes are mostly minerals and sour wood with some dry fruits, and a touch of chardonnay in the finish but wasn’t overwhelming butter chardonnay which can happen to a lot of these saisons. Complex and dry in the finish.

Very nice saison on the sour funky side of things. Pours cloudy blonde and has some tropical citrus fruit aroma I can’t place. Comes together very well though. Medium sour finish with tartness thanks to noodleuser.

From a bottle at the Brewery
Pours a hazy yellow with a smallish, but well retained head.

It’s got a nice floral and limestone thing happening in the aroma with some barn-yard-y funk and a big of light fruit.

The flavor is dry & a touch boozy (surprisingly), It’s got a great strong minerally presence to it with some nice tartness and light bitterness.

Nicely balanced and really original.
