COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This ale is our first venture into barrel aged American wild ales. A blond Saison base similar to that of Saison I, fermented on our proprietary Wicked Wild strain. After fermentation we moved the beer into Petite Verdot Barrels from Rock House Vineyards and added mango, papaya and guava where it sat for 6 months. This ale is tart and tropical with notes of musty hay and citrus. The tartness of this sour is moderate and the dry fruityness makes this beer a great palate cleanser and pairs well with delicate dishes.

Updated: Aged in white wine barrels with 250 lbs per batch of papaya, mango, pineapple and guava. The beer is blended from barrels ranging 5-12 months.

Clear pale blond beer, no head. Aroma: pretty fruity, sweet, funky, hint of cinnamon, stone fruits, some peaches. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: sourish, brett, lemon juice, artificial, fruity touch. Aftertaste: little bitter, tannins, slightly fruity, vinegar acidity, lemon rind, watery finish. I’m not impressed...

bytemesis (4767) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - AUG 17, 2015
Bottle. Pours clear golden, small fizzy white head, quick dissipation, some lacing. Aroma is a big up front burst of butterscotch, followed by some tropical fruit, caramel, oak. Flavor is there too - hella butterscotch, some fruitiness, pineapple note in particular, oaky tannins. Light residual sweetness, lightly tart. I am giving the benefit of the doubt here, but this is the butterscotchiest beer I have ever tried.

RickTheRick (655) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 3, 2015
Un liquide au visuel doré éclatant légèrement voilé surmonté d’une mousse fugace se verse dans le verre. Au premier plongeon du pif, le côté funky de la bière prend d’assaut les narines. En répétant maintes fois l’action, les couches olfactives se précisent et dévoilent des arômes de fruits tropicaux, de lait de coco et de vin blanc. Une belle acidité d’une véhémence moyenne attaque le palais et s’affale rapidement dans une vague fruitée voire sucrée. Le passage en barriques de vin blanc dégage des charmes vanillés fort agréables. Le funk est plutôt timide, ce qui laisse toute la chance aux fruits tropicaux de s’exprimer.

_angst_ (3649) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 20, 2015
750 ml bottle courtesy of Theydon_Bois. Pours hazy pale golden with a small frothy white head that leaves a small trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is fruity with crackers, lemon juice, lime juice, pineapple, peaches, star fruit, yoghurt, hay, dry soil, minerals and lemon zest. Taste is sour and fruity. Mouthfeel is dry, tart, mouthpuckering and light bodied. Finish is sour with crackers, lemon juice, lime juice, pineapple, peaches, yoghurt, hay, dry soil, minerals and lemon zest. Tasty simple citric-centered sour. Wouldn’t mind more depth though...

Light yellow color with a thin lacy head. Solid funky aroma. Sour notes are highlighted by the fruit additions.

Pours a hazy golden color with good carbonated and a quickly dissipating foam head. The aroma reminds me of a good buttery white wine. I also noticed mango, lemon citrus, yeast, some oak, and there is barnyard scents too. While tasting I picked up on medium tart intensity, salty sour flavor, lemon, yeast, and it had some acidity in the finish. This was a good beverage, very kind to the palate. Overall I was not too crazy on the finishing taste, still I?d try this again.
