cmacklin (979) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 19, 2017
375ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy orange-yellow with a thin, short lived, fully dissipating, white head that leaves no lace. Spicy aroma of coriander, ginger, rye, yeast, peach, apricot, lemon, white wine, oak and light funk. Spicy, fruity flavour of rye, ginger, coriander, wheat, lemon, orange, yeast, brett, grainy malt, straw, white wine and oak with a dry, slightly tart finish. Light body with an oily texture and soft to almost flat carbonation. Not bad, has some complexity to it.

mathieuc (3594) - Qubec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 14, 2017
Pours a clear, lightly pale, golden with a thin white head that leaves no lacing. Nose is of oak and wine (felt more like red wine to me, but if you say Chardonnay...). Taste is more of the wine and grapes. Fruity and dry. Body is medium and carbonation moderately low and a bit weak for the style. That reinforces the winey feel, though. Overall a nice barrel aged saison that didnt feel affected by the "extended" aging (2 years IIRC).

Vignale (3508) - Malm, SWEDEN - JAN 3, 2017
Flaska frn Galatea/Craftbeer. Riktigt fin funkig och friskt syrlig doft. Smaken r initialt t samma hll med frisk passiosfrukt och aprikos med ltta fattoner frn chardonnayfaten men smaken dr vl snabbt i munnen och avslutet r vl platt. Riktigt trevlig sammantaget iaf.

reebtogi (5948) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 11, 2016
375ml bottle pours a hazy straw color with a finger of white head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is vanilla with some white wine grapes and hints of yeast and grains. Taste is white wine grapes and vanilla with a malty sweetness and bit of spice with a dry yeasty funk in the finish. Light bodied with good carbonation that pleases the palate. Overall, an interesting brew, with some different flavors, not quite in my wheelhouse, but still a quality brew.

mcberko (15439) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 13, 2016
375mL bottle, pours a hazy golden with almost no head. Aroma brings out light funk, light white wine and some miscellaneous spicy yeasty notes. Flavour is very wheaty, with considerable brett funk, leather, wheat, some spicy rye but almost no hint of the barrels. Dry and very uncarbonated - needs more. Lacking complexity, but its pleasant enough.

bigbish (697) - California, USA - APR 4, 2016
Pours clean yellow, thin head. Slightly sweet flavor, touch of sour with a fruity finish. Good beer. The wine flavor from the Chard barrels really comes through on the finish.

StefanSD (2416) - Ouray, Colorado, USA - APR 3, 2016
Waxed bottle. Cloudy yellow color with a small white head that receded to a ring around the glass. The aroma featured a good sized dose of vanilla, followed by mild woody aromatics of oak and cedar. Brett, if any, was way in the background. The taste is very lightly sour with wood, wine and citrus. The palate was lighter than I prefer. Finished long and dry. Overall: Decent
