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.

Hazy yellow with a really nice white head. Great beer! Funky, sour, stone fruit, white wine grapes, perfect mouthfeel. Damn SP rocks.

Thanks to Mike for sharing this a few months back (from notes). Pours hazy gold with white head. Aroma: Pineapple, tropical juice nose. Taste: botanical, gin; again this "triscuit/snack cracker" thing I got in a previous Jester King beer in August ... maybe Iím not crazy? Or I am, but consistent. Medium body, lively carbonation, slick texture. A little vomit, but in the best possible way. Overall: really nice. I tend to be overly skeptical of these new hyped places out of our market, but this is great. Reminds me of all I love in Upright.

tectactoe (2338) - Michigan, USA - NOV 26, 2014
Tap: Cloudy & hazed yellow body with a humungous, chunky eggshell head that takes about a year to settle. Creamy. Aroma packed with musty Bretty, old cobweb, & dusty cellar funk up front. Lightly tannic oak with a stone fruit & peach skin tartness that wafts its way in. Some pear, a touch of lactic notes, & a strong barn stall funk throughout. Taste has a bit more lemon, peach, & stone fruit out of the gate. Tart, bordering on sour. Introduced some mineral acidity & a touch more lactic acid, though not venturing too far into the yogurt realm. Wet hay & barnyard funk with a hint of that rotten pineapple & sharp lemon zest that you often get from certain strains of brettanomyces. Woody back-end, not quite vinous but dry, woody, & with a nice fruity acidity to finish things up. Simply a great saison with a nice barrel aged character that adds tartness, complexity, & acidity. Bravo.

vyvvy (4135) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - NOV 16, 2014
On tap at The Side Project Cellar - Pours hazy yellow with a white head. The aroma has rich malt for the style, mild tartness, soft herbs, bugs in the back and some nectar fruit. It has a medium soft body with light soft carbonation. The flavor starts off with light citrus, lactic acid, lightly toasted malt, pepper, other spices and sharp fruit. The finish shows a bit of barrel, white wine and is quite refreshing. Another beer from side project that is on the subtle side. Nice.

Pailhead (5076) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - NOV 15, 2014
On tap: The aroma consists moderate florals, sour/funky lemon, oak, and a touch of apple. The flavor starts with sour/tart citrus and lemon. The finish has light oak, and the faintest hint of band aid. Itís light-medium bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel.

Very nice saison pours a straw peach color with fluffy white head. Aroma is very very fruit forward without actually having any fruit. Earthy, Pear, Apricot, quite doughy, and some melon. Taste is tart pear and apricot with quite a lot of doughy sweetness and some funk. Overall this is quite nice and I really enjoyed it but not up there with HF and Forest and Main.

750, thanks Matt. I liked this one a lot. Very crispy and biscuity. Lots of nuances and grainy type tartness. Brett is dominant. Soft carb and mouthfeel. I didnít want to like it but i did.

Bottle to glass. Pours a hazy golden yellow color with a small fizzy off white head. Aroma is a pleasant light oak, dry, light tartness, lemon citrus, barnyard funk. Flavor has a solid tartness to it, light lemon citrus, oak. Light in body with a lingering season citrus funk. Delicious!
