4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Split into snifters the pour produced a small white head on a nice orange yellow body which was cloudy.
The first hit on my nose was slightly funky with a little oak. Followed up with some light citrus notes spice and yeast.
Flavor was funky and that is what I like in a farmhouse, citrus sour and a hint of spice on the backend. Balanced out with enough malts sweetness to make it drinkable. The mouthfeel was medium to light with ample carbonation.
One of my favorite Saison’s to date I enjoyed every drop and added it back to my wants. Tons of flavor and the oak age added a lot of interesting character to the brew.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured into a tulip, 11/12 vintage.
3.5 A: First pour was a nearly clear light orange color. Every pour since then has been progressively more cloudy as is expected in a bottle conditioned brew. One and a half fingers of foamy white head that doesn’t last very long, but does leave a decent amount of lacing.
3.75 S: Tart and funky nose. A lot of dusty, old wood with dry-rotten sweat socks. An almost acetic tartness. Just hints of wildflower herbalness. Hay and a small nondescript light fruitiness.
4.0 T: Taste is like the nose, but amplified five fold. Lots of dusty old woodiness, basement funk, and old crispy sweatsocks. Hay, light grassiness and herbal wildflower, hints of light fruits and honey. Acetic tartness. Very tasty.
3.75 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation with a pleasant spritziness to it. Super smooth.
4.0 D: Quite a tasty brew. I can’t identify any faults. Give it a try.
