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.

On tap @ Perennial. Hazed orange pour with a small white head. Bright citric acidity on the nose. Lemon, grapefruit, and white grape. Nice funk, some green apple, and yeast. 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!

THX!!! to Fux. Gorgeous looking bottle. Hazy golden with a creamy white head. Nose is quite interesting mix of sweet white dough with lactic sourness, sweet white wine with funk, faint white chocolate, sweet, funky and quite a bit of wine. Taste is full of white grapes mixed with funk and heavy on the white wine oak plus funk, touch barnyard,… Lactic touch is far smaller in the taste than in the nose. Lively full body. Quite an interesting and fun beer.
