Draft at brewery with Ann, James, and Pat. Gorgeous hazy pour. Nice funky aroma, really bretty. Taste is very light and has just a touch of Brett funk to it. Not really sour as much as it is funky. Some minor floral and wheat flavors compliment the Brett perfectly. Really nice.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is a glorious beer. Soft yet flavorful. The wine barrel really took the edge off the saison yeast. Very smooth but with the flavor profile of a good, sweet saison. Malty and earthy with a bit of grape. Crisp yet rounded finish. Such a nice beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours hazy lemon in color with a nice bright white head. The aroma brings some sweet and funk, wine and saison yeast quite enjoyed. Flavors bring wild saison yeast and crispy lightly sweetened grapey malts. The body is quite nice and the wine works quite well with the yeast.
