Hazy yellow with a really nice white head. Great beer! Funky, sour, stone fruit, white wine grapes, perfect mouthfeel. Damn SP rocks.
September 2017 - Keg at Beavertown Extravaganza. As 'Side Project Saison du Blé'. Translucent golden yellow, very little head. Aroma is quite syrupy – mostly golden syrup on pancakes, pleasant golden syrup and maple syrup. Body is smooth with tingly carbonation. Taste is thinner than the aroma, sugary, little straw, raspy dryness. Good. (8-4-7-3-16=3.8) DroolYeast (1679) - Odder, DENMARK - NOV 10, 2017

(Sample @ CBC 2016 Red Session, Copenhagen) Pours clear medium gold with a white head. Aroma of wheat cracker, white wine, edgy sulphurous funk, fairly balanced, a funky wet wood character floats around above everything. Flavours of white wine, wheat cracker, moderately funky, cheesy, fairly bright and zippy, but with a relatively expansive grain profile, lightly fruity, somewhat grassy. Medium bodied, a bit creamy feeling, soft carbonation. This is quite solid but it doesn't feel as involved or focused as the best SARA or HF saisons, perhaps a matter of personal preference.

Keg at Beavertown Extravaganza. It pours yellow – gold with a pretty small white head. The aroma is bready, cereal, must, funk, hay, stone fruits and oak. The taste is crisp, dry, tart, decent mouth – pucker, acidic bite, funk, must, white grape, lemon, gooseberry, vinous vibes and some sherbet through the finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Pretty drinkable stuff, but it didn’t wow me. Perhaps lacking in a bit of depth. Hoprider (740) - DENMARK - OCT 2, 2017
Initial pour is clear but turns unclear as yeast is introduced to the mix. Let’s call it semi clear with a very small head. Aroma is loaded with wine barrel notes, tart white grape, bretty fruit, oak shavings. Taste is sharp, cutruc and with a good amount of saison yeast. Gets funky and a little peppery. Flavours are lasting on the palate, mouthwatering sour notes. Endlessly enjoyable. moldovan9807 (480) - Oradea, ROMANIA - SEP 17, 2017

On tap at Beavertown Extravaganza. Aroma has musty cellar and dusty grains. Taste starts tart with wild yeast notes and continues with grainy flavors. Overall it's quite clean and well made. ansalon (4117) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - SEP 9, 2017
