Bottle, nowhere near as goed compared to the Saison du fermier, the foeder adds a clear strong wooden note to it, which masks all the bright and fresh goodness as the "regular" really is. To dry and earthy beskid (460) - Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - JAN 7, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 27, 2018 Bottle at Mon Petit Cafe, thanks to Christoph and Michelle. Aroma is flowers, apricots, some wood and funk. Rather sour for a saison, very complex mouthfeel with both sweet and sour moments, various fruits, orange zest, apricots, plants, lactic notes, wood which even adds some vanilla to the pool. Wow.

On tap at Side Project, pours a cloudy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out oak, light acidity, and saison yeast. Flavour is along the same lines, with oak, rustic saison yeast, and light tangy citrus. Oaky and bretty, with a light citric character. Very nice. beastiefan2k (4230) - HdG (past: NYC, KS, Rain City), Maryland, USA - DEC 30, 2017
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2018 Draft at Brewery. Hazy with head that sticks around. blend 2. Aroma is Brett, citrus, and moderate acidity. But more just acidity with a nice base malty breadiness. As usually it lovely but a bit too acidic. phaleslu (10957) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 21, 2017
750 ml bottle opened by djohanneman - thanks again, Dave! Pours a hazy gold with a small white head that settles into a ring. Notes of lemon, grapes, funk, oak, hay, yogurt, acidity, dry grass, and some tropical fruit. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a tart mouthfeel that's actually pretty clean. Maybe doesn't have the depth of other variants, but really nice to drink. Garrold (5927) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 17, 2017
Bottle, by way of a trade with b3shine. Cheers Beau. Hazy gold. Fizzing white head fully dissipates. Nose has baked apple. Vanilla. Nutmeg. Soft, sweaty, cheesy funk. Sawn wood. Wet leather. Hint of old balsamic. Taste has a baked apple sweetness. Turns light dry, and moderately sour. Soft mouthfeel. Some acidity. Tongue cleansing, in fact. Lightly tart and sour on the finish, tempered by that baked apple sweetness. Very nice.

Draft at side project cellar. Pours golden with an inch of white foam. Leaves some lacing in the glass. A fair amount of tartness. Massively sour on the tongue with hints of wood and floral. Lingers a long time. Not for the faint of heart.
