4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
500 ml, green waxed bottle served in a Tired Hands oversized wine glass. Huge thanks to xnicknj for the glass and the beer.
A: Pours a hazy golden yellow color with a dollop of white foam forming on the pour. It recedes to a thin film and sticky ring. Sheets of lace are left down the glass.
S: This smell is delightful. Great lemon zest, spicy yeasty and sweet oak. White grape with some light tannin wine qualities, but the lemon characteristics come back with a nice sweetness as well. Slightly tart citrus peel as well.
T: Even more stellar than the nose. Lemony and bright with a nice peppery yeast. Slight spice with a minimal oak character. Slightly tart lemon peel with a sweet, bready malt body. The finish as a little vanilla sweetness, white wine and a little grapey fruitiness.
M: Light bodied with a nice a fresh bite. Medium carbonation with a smooth finish.
O: Absolutely delicious. Slightly tart and sweet with a great saison yeast presence. Enough spice and esters to arouse the tongue and at the same time give a nice complexity. I really enjoyed this one. Thanks Nick!

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: AUG 23, 2013 Batch 1 opened by CaseyK.
I like these styles of saisons, ones that aren’t made with traditional saison yeast. Brett brux dominates this one with pedio. Plenty of barnyard funk and hoppy bitterness. Wine barrel more pronounced in the nose than in flavor, but overall very pleasant.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Not usually one for the style, but tried to be objective. Bright yellow pour with white head. A bit cloudy. Aroma is strong and of lemongrass, wine, oak, and other fruit. Great mouthfeel with nice carbonation and frothy head. Taste is crisp and fresh. A little funk/sour from the barrel, but still sweet and full of the farmhouse notes.

Clear golden pour with a frothy white head. Peach nectar, vinous funk, and tropical fruit abound. Very light and quenching body with an ultra dry finish. Could drink this all day...

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
lemon juice nose tannic, tart. Smells like art loads of wheat. The brett strain in nose and taste is incredible. It’s sweet, tart, vinous and dry. This could easily be a daily drinker for me.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thanks to thirdeye11 for sharing this bottle. Milky light yellow color with a white head. The aroma is full of peaches with some Belgian yeast thrown in. The flavor is more complex. I get the farmhouse notes from the yeast as well as some peaches, green grapes, white pepper and some light oak. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
