BVery (11608) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - APR 15, 2018
Bottle. Clear golden yellow pour with a small white head. Aroma is funky, red wine, grape, very nice. Softer palate but still some liveliness. Slightly sweet, mild wood. Excellent.

UPDATED: APR 15, 2018 12oz bottle shared by Bvery, thanks buddy! Copper golden pour. Aroma is funky. Taste follows, red wine, tart, funk. This is well done. Where's the hate coming from?

rondphoto (4620) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - APR 10, 2018
bottle @ Jungle Jim's / Fairfield (Cincy) OH --- Cloudy amber brown color, off-white head that sinks quickly to a thick rim, bands of lace. Taste is malt that is steeped in sour. Medium carbonation, medium-long finish in which the status quo is maintained. Interesting, full-bodied, but seems more pretentious than other Farmhouse Ales I've sampled.

Drake (14492) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 9, 2018
12 ounce bottle. Hazy amber, medium fizzy off-white head, fair retention. Aroma of citrus, berry, and vinegar. Taste is jammy tart cherries, brett, funk, grapes, caramel. Medium bodied, lingering tartness, low carbonation. Solid.

gringo332 (654) - Richardson, Texas, USA - APR 5, 2018
2oz bottle. Poured an amberish color with a thin sized head. Tart fruits, earthy, and some funkiness.

Cybercat (6568) - Georgia, USA - APR 4, 2018
Pours clear copper with a thick and fairly persistent creamy head. Aroma offers tart pomme pine and tropical fruit, woody hops, a not-so-subtle funky tone, a bit of fresh malt. Flavor features bold sweet and tart fruit, apple and pear with some tropical, as well as fresh malt and woody, funky hops. Mouthfeel presents fair body, peppy fizz, and a fruity and slightly funky finish. Be eroic!

Metalchopz (3819) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - APR 1, 2018
2018 OneHitter Series, enjoyed in Vermont for Easter weekend (thanks Nikki). Mildly hazy golden-orange colour with a warm cap and decent lacing. Farmhouse funk smell with a mix of apples, caramel, sourness (light balsamic vinegar) and oak wood notes. A little more sourness in the taste, but not too crazy. All blended well the rest found in the nose. A nice sour ale that is milder on the sourness, so good to start with in this style. The wood notes are a nice added touch.

rollinsr (886) - Atlanta, GEORGIA - APR 1, 2018
Pours a clear amber hue with a very thin layer of off white head. Aroma is tart cranberry with a hint of raspberry. Flavor is sour and slightly sweet wild berries. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

superspak (6638) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - MAR 17, 2018
12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 1/20/2018. Pours slightly hazy medium orange/amber color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big lightly tart lemon, lime, peach, plum, cherry, berry, pear, apricot, red/green apple, red/white wine, hay, straw, grass, pepper, toasted oak, oaken vanilla, honey, brown sugar, brown bread, and biscuit; with light notes of nuttiness, caramel, leathery/musty funk, white wine vinegar, and yeast/oak earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/funky/spicy/light acidic yeast, bready malt, and red wine barrel notes; with great strength. Taste of big lightly tart lemon, lime, peach, plum, cherry, berry, pear, apricot, red/green apple, red/white wine, hay, straw, grass, pepper, toasted oak, oaken vanilla, honey, brown sugar, brown bread, and biscuit; with light notes of nuttiness, caramel, leathery/musty funk, white wine vinegar, and yeast/oak earthiness. Light Brett tartness and yeast/oak spiciness on the finish. Lingering notes of tart lemon, lime, peach, plum, cherry, berry, pear, apricot, red/green apple, red/white wine, hay, straw, grass, pepper, toasted oak, oaken vanilla, honey, brown sugar, brown bread, biscuit, light funk/vinegar, and yeast/oak earthiness on the finish for a while. Awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/funky/spicy/light acidic yeast, bready malt, and red wine barrel flavors; with an awesome malt/tart/spiciness balance, and zero puckering/cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Lightly increasing dryness from tartness and yeast/oak spiciness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready, and fairly acidic/tannic balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol for 7%. Overall this is an awesome barrel aged wild saison! All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/funky/spicy/light acidic yeast, bready malt, and red wine barrel flavors; very smooth and pretty refreshing to drink; with the mellowly tart/tannic/spicy/drying finish, never overly acidic. Really well developed Brett complexity, perfect bready malt balance, and a ton of red wine barrel presence. A really enjoyable offering. More of a Flanders red than a saison overall, but very impressive either way.
