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.

Bottle thanks to Corey again... Pours same as the rest. Hazy golden straw hue with a. Creamy white head ... Lemony white wine tartness. Clean with a bit of acidity... Flavors are more of the same with more if an intense lactic tartness but not overwhelming in any way. Lighter bodied with a mild effervescence. Splendid.

Wow, delicious. Flavor and smell of stone fruit, brett, wine barrel and pepper yeast, well balanced, reminded me of a BA hill farmstead saison

Lighter saison and a wild fermented one. THe malt bill is very biscuity and there are hints of diacetyl.

Bottle. Pour is deep gold with a medium white head. Aroma is funky and tart with hints of lemon, white wine, and dry a champagne-like finish. Flavor is lemony tart up front with hints of wild yeast and very faint funk following. Finish is mixed malt and pepper with a little lingering tartness. Very nice.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2014 Draft at Perennial for the Side Project release, served in a stemmed wine-style glass (roughly the same shape and size of those Goose Island glasses). Pours a cloudy bright gold color with a tiny white ring for a head. Aroma of farmhouse funk, lemon, herbs, grass, bready malts, oak, white wine, and spice. Flavor hits most of the same notes: wine, oak, bready malts, grass and herbs and spices, and a nice farmhouse-style funkiness throughout. Light-medium bodied, with a tart, funky mouthfeel and moderate to medium carbonation. So nice, bright, fresh, tart, and funky. A world-class saison.

Multiple pours at What the Funk!? Appearance is slightly hazy yellow with a big white head and good lacing. Big funky, bretty, pineapple, mango, light urine, biscuit, grassy, and doughy aroma. Taste is big lemon peel, doughy, citrus, brett, mango, a hint of black pepper with a medium sour finish. Light body with medium carbonation. I’m a sucker for wine barrel aged saisons - love the brett addition, as well.

Thanks joet for this bubbly, hazy pour. Horseblanket note appears in aroma and builds throughout flavor. Dominated by acedic tartness . Refreshing dryness and light mouthfeel (hides the 7%abv).
