Hazy pale orange with small white head. Aroma is citrus, grapes, oak, brett, white wine, spicy yeast notes. Taste is tart, dry, light sweet, vinous. Finish is tart fruity with lemon, apple and grape skins, light sweetness, dry oak and wine notes. Light to medium bodied, dry and crisp, average carbonation.
Very nice refreshing BA saison
750 mL bottle. Originally reviewed 11/7/2014.
Hazy bright orange. Nice white head. Medium collar and nice lacing.
White wine aroma is strong. Orange and lemon acidity. Some tropical fruits. A little oak.
Taste is oak and a nice wine barrel presence. Hefty malt. A bit of stone fruit. A little astringent. Light tartness, kinda lemony.
Medium body. Very light tartness. Medium low carbonation.
I’m going to sound overly critical here, so I only say this in comparison to the best of wine barrel saisons. This is just a little too sweet and malty to compare. Still a great beer, but doesn’t quite compare. Errl (2577) - Plano, Texas, USA - OCT 27, 2015

(750ml bottle) cloudy gold body, fine offwhite bubbles. Nose of heavy Chardonnay, medium tartness, saison yeast, dry grapes, juicy fruit, oak, and grape must. Taste of medium Chardonnay, dry grapes, oak, very tart but not really sour, Brett in the back, and super carbonated. The high carb takes Away from it slightly.

Bottle shared by John. Thanks!
A: Cloudy straw color with a thin white head.
N: White peppercorn, straw, grapefruit rind, lemon zest, some pineapple and mango, white wine grape, and oak.
T: Tart and a bit sweet. Doesn’t devolve into sweet-tarts, though. (Thankfully).
M: Light body, crisp carbonation, no alcohol presence.
O: Another winner from Perennial. A bit too easy to take this one down. douglas88 (9632) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 13, 2015

CBC 2015. Pours hazy golden with a low white head. Aromas of funk, citrus, orange, farmhouse and gooseberry. Taste is funk and citrus upfront with notes of gooseberry and farmhouse muskiness. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Very good! PhillyCraft (7935) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 10, 2015
Draft at FOFA, One of the best of the event for me. Pours golden orange with medium white lacing. Aroma and flavor are lemon and sour grape funk, lacto and plenty of Brett complexities, wet oak, peach, and light barn. Perfect amount of tartness and flavor in the finish. Excellent.
