Big bottle picked up in Corvallis. Pours a mostly clear copper color with a large white head. Deep funky flavors with toast, leaves, lemon. Light tartness, some funk, white wine, vinous at times, fluffy palate, earthy. Caramel and more citrus zest. Really good. Mellow and drinkable but complex. Impressive.

750 ml bottle to snifter (shared by Dogbones). Looks good; a hazy lemon yellow with white head and a bit of tiny sediment. Smells good too; white wine, oak, funk, and lemon zest. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. Good stuff!

750ml bottle pours a hazy gold with some frothy white head. Nose is herbal, tart, lavender, dusty, flower pollen, white grape, white peach, fresh squeezed orange juice. Flavor is really heavy with unripened peaches, kumquats, orange juice, lemon zest, herbal, lavender, white grape, light wood shaving. Lightly sweet, otherwise herbal finish. Very nice. Well crafted.

750, corked and strung. Thanks, A & E! You guys are awesome. What a great treat. Pours a murky medium amber with bright golden blond edges and a dense and creamy platinum blond head that starts out as a gigantic PITA and never really goes away. Youre constantly dealing with huge cotton balls of lace and an endless supply of head that endless threatens to geyser over the top of the glass if youre not careful with the pour. Big tart swanky nose, lots of lemon, some basement, strawberries, some egg yolk...this cat just flat knows how to get parallel lines to fall into patterns like railroad tracks. The aromatics bundle together in a harmonious sequence of fairly disparate qualities that end up being much more interesting together. Creamy medium body with boundlessly lively carb. Tart caramel, lemon, basement, strawberries, moss, egg yolk, and mineral dryness on the mid palate. The mineral notes assert more near the end, along with the strawberries, leaving the swallow and the follow a nice cling of berries and rocks. This is a wonderful beer and I should drink it all the fucking time.

Bottle thanks to cocoapuph. Pours clear golden, small off-white head, dissipates fairly quickly, good lacing. Aroma is funky, cheese, feet, oak and lemons. Flavor is light tart, medium funky, some fruit, oaky lemons. Light body. Weird.

jackl (7188) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 26, 2013
Very fancy bottle. Cheers to deeblo for bringing this from the states! The pours slightly hazy gold with a medium white head. The aromas salty brine, tart lemon peel, light marshmallow. Wild funk. The taste is green apple juice, soft acidity. A bit of lemon drizzle cake. Ribbon candy. Very easy-drinking and smooth considering the ABV. Medium body, slightly chalky on the palate. Overall, pretty nice. I didnt get much of the wine barrel in this.

drfabulous (7118) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - JUN 6, 2014
750 ml bottle from Corvallis shop. Pours big carbonation. Aroma is wine and yeast. Tart taste. Lemon. Holy mackerel. Damn good. Saison all the way. Sour doesnt do the style justice.
