COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

markextrae (3330) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - JAN 10, 2016
batch 3 bottle shared with a friend. poured a beatiful murky deep yellow golden colour with a nice white head on top. nose is incredible and unique in it’s style. a nice clear funky brett aroma in the nose, dusty, and crisp malts, the wine oak and a nice subtle sweet aroma, combined with sweet white grapes chardonnay, yeast, lemon pulp, and sweet green melon. there’s a slight tartness of funk in the aftertaste. I was expecting more to be honost. but the balance is on of a kind, with no alcohol notice. with a nice clean dry finish. one of the better beers in it’s style. fantastic beer by SP, had to come back at my rating after i’ve cracked the fruited versions

_angst_ (4350) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 11, 2015
Draught @ CBC2015. Pours hazy vibrant deel yellow with a big frothy white head that slowly dissipates while leaving some thick lacing on the glass. Smell is fruity and funky with crackers, lemonade, white grapes, hay, dry soil, minerals, barnyard and lemon zest. Taste is sour, fruity and slightly funky. Mouthfeel is sparkling, dry, tart and light to medium bodied. Finish is sour with crackers, lemon juice, lime juice, white grapes, hay, dry soil, minerals, barnyard and lemon zest. Good stuff but much of the complex funk is hidden behind heavy citric acidity.

ctipping (1039) - Florida, USA - NOV 20, 2015
750 mL bottle. Originally reviewed 11/7/2014. Hazy bright orange. Nice white head. Medium collar and nice lacing. White wine aroma is strong. Orange and lemon acidity. Some tropical fruits. A little oak. Taste is oak and a nice wine barrel presence. Hefty malt. A bit of stone fruit. A little astringent. Light tartness, kinda lemony. Medium body. Very light tartness. Medium low carbonation. I’m going to sound overly critical here, so I only say this in comparison to the best of wine barrel saisons. This is just a little too sweet and malty to compare. Still a great beer, but doesn’t quite compare.

thirdeye11 (5975) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 10, 2015
(750ml bottle) cloudy gold body, fine offwhite bubbles. Nose of heavy Chardonnay, medium tartness, saison yeast, dry grapes, juicy fruit, oak, and grape must. Taste of medium Chardonnay, dry grapes, oak, very tart but not really sour, Brett in the back, and super carbonated. The high carb takes Away from it slightly.

Bottle shared by John. Thanks! A: Cloudy straw color with a thin white head. N: White peppercorn, straw, grapefruit rind, lemon zest, some pineapple and mango, white wine grape, and oak. T: Tart and a bit sweet. Doesn’t devolve into sweet-tarts, though. (Thankfully). M: Light body, crisp carbonation, no alcohol presence. O: Another winner from Perennial. A bit too easy to take this one down.
