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. 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. 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).

Cloudy golden with big pillowy white foam. Tart very tart, bits of tangerine, citrus, creamy and spritzy. Emerging as it warms, cidery. Brett is rustic horseblanket. Tart finish.

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.
