Bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow with small frothy white head that lasts leaving sticky lacing. The aroma is strong floral hop and oak. Thin mouthfeel with herb and straw, light sweet finish, good.

I rated the regular version a 4 so higher than this. Dirty amber. Soft head. More depth in aroma. Grape flavour matches the spice.

Vaiz (3284) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 8, 2013
Bottle bought at Stone. Hazy murky yellow pour, thin foamy white head. Aroma is very fruity with loads of spices, pumpkin, red wine and a hint of barnyard. Flavor is quite fruity, almost sweet with some decent malts, but quickly becoming more spicy and slightly tart in the finish. Very complex brew and it takes a few sips before it becomes enjoyable. Definitely unique.

Corked and caged 500 ml bottle purchased at the brewery fourteen months ago ($15.00). Pours a slightly hazy peach-amber hue with two fingers of white foam. Aroma of significant spicy sage, rosemary and medicinal herbs, lemon verbena, and some sweet-spicy fruit. Flavor has more sage and other herbiness (perhaps some mint as well), spicy citrus, some dry oak barrel, tannic red wine, tart apple, and bready malts. Dry finish with a small amount of lingering hop bitterness. Itís just okay...the wine barrel does not seem to have added much and this BA version is not as "fresh" or refreshing as the regular version of the Saison du BUFF. Once again, the high price tag effectively makes this another BA miss from Stone as I prefer the original non-BA version. (40, 807)

Tmoney99 (10455) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 4, 2013
Bottle shared by brew3crew. Poured hazy golden color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate herbs, citrus, tannic wood and yeast aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy spice sweet flavor with a medium spice sweet finish of moderate duration. I enjoyed this with friends.

500ml bottle, shared by brew3crew. Mostly hazy golden amber color. Good thin white head. Good mountains of lace. Very nice floral, herbal, citrus zesty aroma. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, lighter carbonation. Lightly soft. Dry in the finish. Nice light savory taste. Very enjoyable special version of Saison Du Buff.

500 ml bottle to snifter (muled by brew3crew). Looks good for the style; a lightly cloudy orange with white head that dissipates into lacing. Smells doughy, yeasty, and spicy with citrus zest and a nice red wine backbone. A bit of aftershave too. Tastes like it smells, minus the aftershave. Nice and lively on the palate. Good beer!

I like the base beer much better. Seems like it was left in the barrels too long. The bold tannins from the barrel dominate the beer.

500mL courtesy of HH84. Thanks! A: Cloudy copper with a firm 1" head. Stains the glass. No complaints here. N: Saison yeast mesh at the top of the nose. Dry, and earthy with some tannins. Can smell the rosemary and sage. Some pine nut character. Granny Smith apples. Not sure what to make of this, but it is definitely unique. T: Lots of spices. Strong rosemary and thyme presence. The sage is also well represented. Itís very tannic, yet I donít get a lot of the wine flavor. Plenty of yeast character. Cedar woodiness. Some leather. Slightly sour. This leans pretty far to the bitter, biting side, as if stuffed with hops. Starts to really grate on me after too long. M: Well carbonated and very, very dry. O: A decently enjoyable beer for the first ten minutes. This is definitely in your face, and Iím not sure thatís a characteristic I want in a saison. I wish there was more wine character to tame the spices.

Bottle shared at RBWG. Nose shows lots of spice/floral/botanicals upfront, some oak, light vinous red wine notes. Flavor is similar and you can definitely taste the effects of the barrel, but like all of the base beers in this collab, the botanicals really run the show.
