Bottle purchased a few days ago at the pub. No bottle date but its a one off release so who cares. PiTA getting the cap off with all the wax but it finally opened up. Pours an absolutely marvelous shimmering flax blond. Very mildly hazy. Aroma too is out of this world. Wine and green grapes mixed with a touch of spearmint. Only 10 I've ever given on aroma. Texture is extremely light and delicate. Lots of champagne bubbles, perhaps a few too many. Taste is very winey with the Saison yeast coming in just behind. Finishes bone dry, just how I like. I'd really be interested in having a side by side tasting with this and FarmHands to see the differences. Excellent beer! One of my favorite saisons.

Shared bottle at Craft. Hazy straw pour with white head. Nose was yeasty, with notes of wine must, tart citrus. Tasted lively on the palate, tart, yeasty, citrus fruity, with oak and red wine grapey flavors. gephross100 (943) - Bellaire, Texas, USA - JUL 1, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 1, 2016 Cloudy yellow small white head. Medium mouth feel average carbonation that maintains a thin white blanket on the top of the beer. Lemon zest, barnyard funk, and red wine notes. Small Brett characteristic on the finish. Very good. Thanks Alex for sending me this bottle.

500 ml bottle poured into a teku. The beer is a very pale yellow with a very small bit of white head that dissipates quickly. The aroma has a nice fruity, wine like acidic funk to it. Some woody notes. The taste is more floral funk. Not really sour, but not sweet either. Moderate bitterness, but it’s balanced as well. Lots of subtle nuances to this beer. I enjoyed it a lot. Could have used a bit more carbonation, but otherwise i see nothing to complain about here. onceblind (10864) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 10, 2016
Hazy sunny gold with a thin white ring. Big funk bretty saison nose with a touch of peach and lemon. The taste is more fruity than the nose, but slightly light in body, earthy funky and just slightly grapefruity tart. Weird but complex.

Poured from bottle thanks Airforcehops nice semi clear golden color with a thin head. Aromas of musty grain tart lemon and white wine and hint of saison yeast. Taste is well balanced with nice tart lemon funk up front with notes of oak and fruity yeast. Many thanks Chris! WillRunForBeer (2803) - Massachusetts, USA - NOV 14, 2015
Wow, can’t believe Can’t believe I get to try this. Provided by AirForceHops, shared by Chalemeaux. Thanks, guys! Pours clear white gold, half a ring of white bubbles. Fantastic funky aroma, mostly farmhouse funk, a bit of lemon and cider. Flavor is tart, lemon, oak. Very nice.
