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.

ctipping (2236) - Florida, USA - MAR 20, 2017
750 mL bottle. Hazy orange body with a big white head. Smells very oaky. Lemony and kinda grassy. Tastes of tons of oak as well. Some soft tropical fruitiness. Lemon and a bit of lime sourness. Dry grassy and an oaky finish. Medium body. While I still think Fermier is a phenomenal saison, this doesn’t quite have the depth of flavor without the strong wine component that it usually has.

750ml B1. Hazy bright yellow with a foamy white head. Aroma is tart lemon, some peach and berries.Taste is bright sour, mild acidity, lemon and peach. Doesnt have the wine subtleties of the regular but otherwise just as good as the regular.

Had this on draft at the brewery the day of the release and my main take away was how oaky it was. Two months later out of the bottle and it’s completely different.

From notes. Had at a tasting with the group at Erik’s house on January 22. 750 mL bottle. The pour is a slightly foggy golden orange color with a thinner white head that slowly falls off, leaving a couple spots of lace. The aroma is great. There is a light tartness right up front, a hint of some citrus zest, maybe a dusting of stone fruit, and a light funk. It’s light, well-balanced, and what I look for in a saison. The flavor is just as good. The light, tart, funky oak really pops and lets a slight citrus sourness poke through. There is a light pepper on the back end, but this is delicate, clean, and lovely. The mouth feel is light and crisp with a brighter carbonation and a lingeringly tart and funky oak on the finish. Very solid beer.
