BEENJAMIN (288) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 21, 2014
Pours a lot clearer then the base beer, really nice looking golden color. Flavors are clean and sharp. A lot of white wine acidity with herbaceous tones. You can tell the barrel selection was a big part of crafting this beer. The tartness is just perfect, what a delicious Saison, I wish I had five more.

Thanks to errl for sharing this bottle. Hazy orange pour with a white head. The aroma has some strong yeast notes as well as some oak and lemon character. The flavor is similar. The lemon and orange notes really stand out, with some biscuit and oak notes also coming through. There is a bit of funk and a hint of tartness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A very nice saison.

wedgie9 (1794) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 23, 2014
Tasted on 2/7/14 from a capped 750mL bottle at the Friday night tasting at RBWG Asheville, big thanks to GT2 for sharing. Pours hazy light orange with a thick white head that slowly recedes to average lace. The nose is gin botanical with a savory note (perhaps cumin), lactic sour, and has a tart vinous note. The flavor is a bit more lactic sour with all of the botanical notes on the back, but without that herbal savory thing from the nose. The body is medium with lively carbonation and a long tart gin finish.

Bottle share thanks to Homer321. pours a fairly clear, orange color. Funky, sweet, light barnyard, citrusy. Citrusy, sweet, barnyard, refreshing, very nice.
