Saison du Fermier is a Chardonnay barrel-fermented Saison. It is the harmony of new and old. It is robust and has the paler color of modern Saisons, yet it is balanced with the brightness, depth and rustic character of Brettanomyces and Lactobacillus found in traditional Saisons. This farmhouse ale was fermented in and aged in wine barrels for several months.

Straw, green apples, white wine grapes, sweet cream, and candied lemon on the mid palate. Long mildly funky finish. Wonderful saison.

Reynolds314 (3324) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 25, 2016
Good barrel aged saison but this brewery continues to fall a little short of the top saison breweries. Hazy straw color with light white head. Aroma is oak, funk, pineapple, dough and cheese. Taste is funky tart and a bit too doughy sweet. Overall nice but the sweetness detracts.
