4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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. Iím 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).

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle and tap, multiple times. Served in a wine stem each time. P: Body is a nice, hazy pale orange with two fingers of white frothy head. Some lacing, and the head recedes to a nice film. S: Forward white wine and buttery oak, with some funk, eathy yeast, lemon rind, and light citrus. T: Tart lemons and citrus upfront, that quickly evolves into a vinous white wine. Toasted, buttery oak throughout. A nice dose of funk through the back half gives way to an abrupt dry, vinous finish. M: Nicely carbonated. Medium tartness, and juicy through the middle. Finish is bone dry. O: A delight to drink, and one of the best wine barrel saisons Iíve had the please to have. Intensely flavorful, but a joy to drink.

UPDATED: FEB 10, 2014 Sampled at Midwest Belgian Beer Festival. Pours a cloudy golden color with white head. Funky, yeasty, wet blanket aromas. Barnyard, cheese, yeasty flavors. Delicious beer. This was the standout beer at Midwest Belgian Beer Festival in my opinion.
