3.73/5  rDev +8.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Bottle: Poured a hazy beige color ale with a large foamy head with average retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of vinous tart notes with light fruity ester and easily discernable rustic malt is quite interesting. Taste is also dominated by vinous tart notes with rustic malt notes and some light fruity ester. Wine barrel is more prevalent then I was expecting though based beer is solid enough to sustain it. Body is quite full with limited filtration and good carbonation. Solid offering!

3.4/5  rDev -1.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

In the genre of the Belgian farmhouses, their Saison takes on a "sinful" tone with its barrel aging that unleashes a bourbon-esque tone with sweetness, fruit and an agitated sense that the beer's trying to be something it's not. It's an angry beer!

Rusty brown in its tone, deep honey gold, chestnut and amber hues are shielded by the beer's cast of haze. Its tarnish ivory head is creamy and fluid while retaining the session well, smattering the glass with specks of lace with a swift swirl.

Its biscuity, spicy and winey aromas start off fine enough, but a quick rise of apple dominates the nose- those delicious red apple aromas overtake the orange, lemon and white grape scents and simply won't allow for the spices of peppercorn, fennel or clove to make any head-way at all. A barrel-influenced note of caramel, brown sugar and toast almost take on proportions of Circus Peanut candy.

Its steely caramel taste is of toast, over-cooked caramel, pecan hulls and barley grain. While the middle is reliant on the spice and fruit blend, the fruit really takes the lead- doing so with the apple medley of granny smith, golden delicious and fiji types. Its slim orange, lemon and grape taniness is dampened by the over-ripe apple character. But that's all brought back into balance in the beer's closure, where it finishes with a presence of toasted oak, wood spices and extracted maple-like sweetness.

Medium in body, its lush caramel taste gives richer and toastier impressions that keep the beer feeling less dry and zesty than expected. Though warm, spicy and laced with a soft vanilla character, its finish is slightly tannic, spicy-warm and peppery.

This angry beer is largely upset because the common, tried and true taste of Saison has been tampered with. As dry as those Saisons become, they are open to the domination of the barrel or any other alterations to the style; and it is not happy with it at all. With the out of balance apple character that ensues, wrath is about to be had!

2.8/5  rDev -18.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 2.5

The colour is brown-amber (25 EBC), the liquid is clear. The three finger head is beige and airy. OK retention; lots of lacing.

The smell is yeasty and a bit tart. Alcohol, solvents and green apples. Bitter almonds, dried herbs and some red berries. It is a bit rough, as it is supposed to be.

The taste is raw with solvents, paint and alcohol. Yeast, red fruits and tart flavours. Wood and bitter almonds. Medium body. The aftertaste is even more alcoholic with green plants, tree sap and fresh cut wood. It is rather dry. Bitter almonds and caramel in the finish.

The carbonation is strong; the bubbles are large and short-lived. The liquid is dry.

This one was way to rough and chemical for me.

A Saison aged in pinot noir barrels and pours a slight hazed golden amber hue which leaves a two finger head and sporadic lacing,the smell is pinot noir grapes,oak,barnhouse funk and mandarins,the mouthfeel is medium bodied and has tastes of cherries,funk,grapes,candi sugar,oak and finished with a sherbet sourness and overall its not bad and would drink again cheers.

3.13/5  rDev -9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

A: Massive beige head at first, light but also compact. Then the pale copper liquid starts to rise. Rich lacings.

S: Stable and leather. Rich sour yeast. Grass and even some smoked ham. Oaky smell, a bit vineuos and grapy. Spicy.

T: Oak and funk. Yeast and a sour grapefruit-like vibe. Spices but a bit uneven and a bit harsh when it comes to the bitterness.

M: Long sour dry aftersmell. Body is thin and carbonation rather strong.

O: Well, the oak and the wine made this a bit to rough for my liking when it comes to Saisons. The Saisony sencation was almost lost due to the oak...

Appearance: Apple Pie - Auburn - Amber - Clear - Caramel
Smell: Sweet Apricot, Sweet Cherry, Ripened & Syruped Apple w/cinnamon, acidic and tart smelling, some sourness present
Taste: Apple and Cinnamon and cumin is ever-present after swallowing.
Mouthfeel: Carbonation is dense and heavy - smells farm more sour than it is.
Overall: creaminess is pretty high my comparison to the dry saisons I’m used to.

Flavor: Apple, Cinnamon, Fig, ripened cherry, a bit of ripened banana at the back
Feel: Dense carbonation at the front, effervescent at the back. Hop character dries me out at the finish.
Finish: a bit dry, a bit of bitterness - activates the back of my tongue right at the center more than anything else

Last Impression:
Sweet apples and bitter orange peel, with a tinge of sour/tart cherries.

Serving type: on-tap
