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.

Prufrockstar (1386) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 13, 2014
Batch 2 bottle, shared by Dice at a tasting (thanks!). Here are my awesome notes [why the hell donít I rate these live? No idea]. Hazy orange, no head. Bretty, pear juice, funk. Juicy, tart, fruity. Medium body, slick oily texture, short tart bite at the end. Nom Nom nom. 8/4/ [<--- literally, thatís where my rating leaves off. Why are people even allowed to drink and rate, huh? Anyway, my gut and my amazing memory says 3.8.]

beastiefan2k (2771) - Emerald City (formely NYC & KS), Washington, USA - DEC 12, 2014
750mL bottle at a tasting. Cloudy golden beer with a small head. Its like a funk sour candy beer. It has sharp but not too sharp pear esters. That makes a sour, estery, and funky beer without the negatives of those aspects. Fun beer.

Bottle thanks to Chow. Pours a cloudy orange with small frothy white head. The aroma is lactic, tannic, and white grape. Thin mouthfeel with nice lacto, brett, tart, juicy, oak, very impressive.
