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 shared by Kyle, thanks! Pours a cloudy pale yellow with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of sweet grains with a bit of light fruit and Belgian yeast with a touch of dry wine. Flavor has some citrus with light fruits, sweet grains and a bit of Belgian yeast/wine dryness.

phaleslu (6509) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 21, 2013
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.

UPDATED: JUN 29, 2014 Taster at RBWG 2014 grand tasting. Thanks to fail slew for sharing. Mmm! Awesome bigger sour taste, very satisfyingly sour. Mild sweet, light spiciness. Hazy golden orange color, thin white head, some loose dots of lace. Good lemony citrusy aroma. Floral, lightly estery saison notes. Medium body. Smooth, lightly soft, lighter carbonation. Very tasty sour saison. One of the best examples of this style I’ve had, that was clear from the first sip. 8/3/9/4/17
