Bottle to glass. Pours a murky deep yellow light orange color with an off white head. Aroma is a nice tartness, citrus, barnyard funk. Flavor packs a pretty solid sour, more than expected. Lingering tartness and funk in the finish. Excellent beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tasted on tap in a stemmed wine glass at Side Project Cellar as "Saison du Fermier Blend #3". It poured an attractive light orange amber, slight haze (but much less murky than their Foedre Beer), with sudsy, long-lasting white foam and Belgian lace. Grainy and lemony, tart and acidic, definitely heading into sour territory, yogurty lacto bite, young Brett earthiness but I couldn’t detect any aged brett characteristics, nor any wood essence, sadly. Extremely light residual malty sweetness. Light body, strong carbonation, crisp and spritzy mouthfeel, lingering aftertaste big on wacky fermentation notes. Very tasty and complex saison.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
~3 oz sample at the Boulevardia Taps & Tastes in Kansas City, Missouri. The pour is slight haze golden, decent white head considering the size of pour. The aroma is lemon citrus, fresh grass / hay, additional citrus fruit and soft earthy yeast presence. Bunch going on the nose, clean and fresh. The taste is tart lemon, lacto and Brett, the grass and hay of the nose and finishing cleanly. Wine and barrel were not all that present. The palate is medium bodied, active carbonation and a clean, softly funk yeast finish. Happy to have tried this one, though certainly left me wanting for more.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft to stemmed wine glass. Blend #3. Looks good; a milky apricot with white head. Smells of semi-sweet and mildly tart with notes of saison yeast, brett, and oak with a well-balanced Chardonnay influence. Tastes like it smells, but more tart, and with a nice lactobacillus presence. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied and lively. Good stuff.
