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.

Pour is slightly hazed golden orange with a fairly tight white head. Nose has a hint of oak, rubbery phenols, white grapes, faint farmhouse notes and some citrus. Taste follows suit, oaky up front with notes of the chard barrels. A hint of rubbery grapy phenol, tangerine fruitiness and some leathery brett. Body is light and creamy, with notes of acidity in the finish and some acetic burn.

Sampled at a STL tasting - Pours hazy dull orange with a small white head,. The aroma has barnyard yeast, mild oak, some wine notes, hints of sourness and fall leaves. It has a medium frothy body with somewhat sharp carbonation. The flavor begins with lactic sourness, wine noes, some bugginess and lemons. The finish has some spiciness and pleasing funk. Excellent saison.

Good crisp acidity to the flavor. Sour grape, green apple, and lemon. Lots of grapefruit as well. Subtle oak, some grass, and a hint of peach. Solid.

On draft at the brewery during RBSG 2014 Bus Tour. Lots of wine and citrus with a slight chest burning astringency. This hits more along the lines of a sour than a saison, so for that I like it, but for a saison, I think it is completely out of style. Enjoyable beer though.

This is a clear orange blond beer with a long lasting head. There is a good deal of complexity to the nose: lots of cloves, banana and floral notes. It has a light, soft texture which let’s the fresh fruity notes really shine. The finish is dry which lends a great drinkability. Side project impresses me again and again with their beers.

A delight to drink, and one of the best wine barrel saisons I?ve had the please to have. Intensely flavorful, and a joy to consume.

Bottle (750 ml). Shared by Fux, thanks! Hazy bright yellow/golden with a small persistent white head and good lacing. Aroma is fresh and enticing with a lot of citrus along brettanomyces, wine, yeast, lactic notes and pineapples. Taste is also super fresh with brettanomyces, citrus, pineapples, wine, yeast and a nice subtle but efficient malt backbone. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Slightly winey mouthfeel. Dry finish. Extremely drinkable/refreshing and really tasty. A super barrel-aged Saison that is definitely among the best. I loved it!
