COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Saison du Fermier is a Chardonnay barrel-fermented Saison. It is the harmony of new and old. It is robust and has the paler color of modern Saisons, yet it is balanced with the brightness, depth and rustic character of Brettanomyces and Lactobacillus found in traditional Saisons. This farmhouse ale was fermented in and aged in wine barrels for several months.

Poured from a Batch #3 bottle. Aroma is really nice with some light grain notes, medium citrus, medium light tropical and stone fruit and a light peppery note. Reminds me a lot of Saison Bernice but with some light oak. Pours a slightly hazy, yellow gold with a large, pillowy white head. Head exhibits nice retention as it slowly recedes into itself. Moderate lacing and small legs. Flavor is lightly to moderately tart with a nice lemon, citrus note. Light grain notes with medium bitterness. Light woodsy, peppery phenolic note. Medium light tropical and stone fruit with a light mineral quality. Light oak notes. Mouthfeel is medium to medium light bodied with nice carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, this is stupidly good and very similar to Bernice. It might be a slight bit tarter with a bit more lemon and less stone and tropical fruit. The oak adds some complexity, but also a bit of tannins.
