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 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.

Pours a hazy yellow with no head. Aroma of oak, citrus, funk. Taste is sour, white wine, oak and that good old Belgian funk.

Many glasses on tap at West Lakeviewís Zwanze 2013 event. Canít believe this didnít kick immediately. Really beautiful notes of lemon and light acidity. Some pineapple and white wine. Gorgeous mouthfeel. Outstanding.

Sampled at FOFA15 with Linh, Paul, Vin and Al. Pours a deep hazy orange with thick, active white lacing. Mouthfeel is essentially perfectly balanced between tart fruits, sour oak, and faint mineral character. Incredibly tart and beautifully sour with the funkiness perfectly controlled. Marvelous sour saison and one of the best offerings of the festival.

batch 3 bottle shared with a friend. poured a beatiful murky deep yellow golden colour with a nice white head on top. nose is incredible and unique in itís style. a nice clear funky brett aroma in the nose, dusty, and crisp malts, the wine oak and a nice subtle sweet aroma, combined with sweet white grapes chardonnay, yeast, lemon pulp, and sweet green melon. thereís a slight tartness of funk in the aftertaste. I was expecting more to be honost. but the balance is on of a kind, with no alcohol notice. with a nice clean dry finish. one of the better beers in itís style. fantastic beer by SP, had to come back at my rating after iíve cracked the fruited versions

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.

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

Lightly hazed yellowish/orange pour. White head. Man this is good! Stone fruit, wild grapes, yeast, plain yogurt, lacto sourness, lemons, tart and puckering, juicy and awesome.

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,Ö Lactic touch is far smaller in the taste than in the nose. Lively full body. Quite an interesting and fun beer.
