375ml bottle. Pours golden yellow. Beautiful hazy color on this one. Big thick white foamy head lasting forever. Tiny micro bubbles rising throughout the glass indicating nice carbonation. Beautiful. Smells like a well aged Arthur. Oaky and winey with some light fruitiness as well. Some barnyard funk to it as well and some citrus zest. Tastes light and citrusy with a tiny hop bitterness. White winey and beautifully oaky to round it out. Very smooth and direct flavor. Perfectly balanced throughout. Beautifully carbonated. Tart and slightly sour mouthfeel. Great drinkability. Crisp and medium mouthfeel. Overall, extremely enjoyable. Not the biggest fan of the Arthur but absolutely love this one. Very well done by Shaun. JBPortland (1582) - Virginia, USA - SEP 4, 2017
375ml bottle pours hazy golden yellow with a finger of head. Probably the best aroma I've ever experienced on a beer. So much subtle intricacies of field grain funk, orange and citrus, stonefruit fuzz, lemon, hay, layers swirling in the nose and the taste follows with a wonderful super soft pillowy feel. Moderate tartness and lingering stonefruit. Arthur elevated to the sublime. Rivals 5/2014 Arthur for the best verison of Arthur I've had. czar (9680) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 27, 2017
bottle shared mixmastermcee, thanks matt. pours hazy light golden with a small creamy white cap offering some retention and lacing. very fruity berry maltiness, chewy lemons, tender oak, spot-on tartness and related complexity; rustic cereals, minerals, fair amount of oak wood from puncheon, well water. moderate carbonation, light body, tart woodsy-citrusy finish. saison yeast seems a lot more prevalent here in this declension - for sure not Art, and not quite Arthur either. mathieuc (4000) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 25, 2017
Thanks to Benjamin for this one! Nose is of winey oak with some dill. Taste is nicely vinous as well and oaky with some of the Arthur character but a completely different beast altogether. Body is medium, carbonation moderate. Vinous. A very nice barrel aged saison! Yum!

375ml bottle poured into a Black Tuesday taster glass.
A~ glowing orange with a slight head and a little lacing.
S~ pretty much like regular Arthur, citrus, lemon, lime, black pepper and some wine barrel funk. but the funk is definitely more present while the citrus is subdued.
T~ follows the nose, very delicate here with more delicious barnyard funk ending wth some floral qualities.
M~ nice carb. very soft, delicate and smooth tying it all together!
O~ trying to recreate the magical Blue Label Arthur!? i would like to think so! none the less a great iteration of a already great brew! the mouthfeel really blew me away! tapefuzz (975) - Massachusetts, USA - JUN 27, 2017
375mL bottle. Pours hazy gold with a small white head. Aroma is oak, funk, cheese, apple, and grain. Taste is oak, lemon, white grape, hay, light vinegar, and a hint of peach. Tart with a drying, lightly puckering finish. Very, very light peppercorn in the finish. Medium body. Spritzy carbonation. Crisp mouthfeel - an almost buttery smoothness. bottleforager (3211) - Gray, Maine, USA - MAY 28, 2017
UPDATED: MAY 29, 2017 375ml pours a pale golden straw color with a finger of white foam. Nose is bitter citrus peel and pith with classic arthur rustic grain, floral fieldgrass, soft lavender, tart lemon and traces of pineapple and stonefruit. Palate follows with nice blend of juicy brett and rustic grain. Harmoniously wrapped in some vinous oak influence that lingers in the background. Tart, slightly bitter and delicious with the most focused yet soft mouthfeel I may have ever experienced. Carbonation is dialed in to perfection. Trying not to chug this and enjoy it but every sip gets bigger and bigger. Johnsense (1822) - - MAY 23, 2017
Lighter gold pour, hazy, smaller white head. Oak, citrus aroma, funky, light tartness. Lighter citrus up front, lemon zest, light grape, toasted malt, oak, rustic, light cellar notes. Lighter body. Extremely approachable. Un Gros Merci! 50belair (3718) - Florida, USA - MAY 22, 2017
Bottle. Clear yellow pour with a white head. Tasty with grassy/floral highlights. Rustic with subtle vinous hints. Good body and mouthfeel. Tasty, thanks Collin.
