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.

Lukaduke (2263) - Portland, Maine, USA - FEB 24, 2014
Bottle shared courtesy of JBPortland ! Pours a slightly hazy yellow golden color with a finger or two of fizzy white foam. The nose is spritzy lemon lime, with some lactic sourness and vinous complexity. The palate is bright and refreshing and follows the nose with great harmony of light rustic grain, sprite like lemon lime sweetness, round vanilla and tart vinous notes that fall into a heavy tartness late in the palate. A touch of acetic vinegar builds on the finish, but overall a delightful beer !

750ml bottle opens with a tiny gush, pours hazy orange with a finger of head. Nose is citrus, grains, earthy wood, tart. Taste is tart creamy citrus and grains, light brett, funk, peach, orange crush. Finish is dry tart lacto orange and lemony yogurt, some musty wine barrel notes. Great!

Suttree (5195) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 11, 2014
Sampled at 2014 RBWG. Yellow, with a small ring of foam. Pretty impressive - good mix of herbal, wine, lemon, and grass, all held together by a appealing tartness. Also some fresh bread flavors. More, please...

Bottle from Phallus Lou. Pours slightly hazy golden. Aroma is stankin. Big tropical notes and funk. Taste is peppery, some more lactic tartness and citrus fruits. Plenty of oaky notes. Palate is slightly lively. Finishes acidic and oaky. Really solid beer. One of my favorites of RBWG.
