Served from tap in to a Trappe Door tulip. Poured a golden yellow with a one finger white head. Maintained excellent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, fruit, alcohol, sour apple, wood, and peaches. The flavor was of sweet malt, fruit, wood, spice, sour apple, chardonnay, and white wine. It had a light feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a fairly good brew. The chardonnay going on in this brew was definitely letting you know it meant business on the flavor. It seriously overwhelmed this one making it quite dry on the finish. This brew was very wine-esque. While that is definitely not a bad thing, it just didn't fit in with other brews of the style. Granted, if it would fit in to any category for a beer, it would be this one without a doubt.

From 04/09/14 notes. Had on tap at The Jeffrey in NYC. Menu said this one was aged in Chardonnay barrels with lacto for 2 full years...sounds promising. 12 oz. pour.

a - Pours a somewhat hazy golden brown color with high carbonation evident and one inch of white head.

s - Smells of a ton of lacto, vanilla, oak, spice, fruits, floral hops, earthy notes, and light white wine. Nice nose, lacto dominates though.

t - Tastes of lacto, more white wines, spices, oak, vanilla, pepper, floral hops, earthy notes, and light fruity malts.

m - Medium body and low carbonation. Pretty easy to drink.

o - Overall a decent saison. White wine comes through more in the taste, and the lacto really dominates it throughout. A good beer, though I liked the cherry berlinerweiss much more.
