3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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!

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of tartness, wine and light barrel notes, pale malts, lots of light fruits and oranges, and some light sour notes. Flavor the same with a cool blend of everything. Average texture. A really cool beer.
