Not positive on the style of this one, so feel free to correct if needed, but all the right aspects were there.

Enjoyed this one while sitting by the pool on the 4th in the sun! Served from bottle into an RJ Rockers shaker. Poured red-orange with a half finger off-white head that subsided to a minimal amount almost instantly. Maintained decent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, sulphur, lemon, and fruit. The flavor was of sweet malt, fruit, sour, tart, wood, and a nice funk note. It had a light feel on the palate with medium carbonation. Overall this was a pretty decent brew. I was really shocked at what I found in this one upon investigation. I kind of went in blind not knowing what to expect and really enjoyed what I found. They said it was a Pale aged in oak barrels, but it just didn't feel right putting this one in the Pale category based on the persona it had taken on in the barrels. I figured this was a little more suiting due to the flavors and aromas I picked up on. Definitely a must try that will get you in trouble quickly as the 9% ABV was nowhere to be found. Tick.

FIrst had: on tap at TJ's, Paolia, PA

First thing I thought of when seeing this beer: "We are the Knights Who Say 'Ni'!" (The face you're making now is probably the same my wife made when I exclaimed this at the bar.)

Served in a tulip glass, a murky, ruddy brown color with a small wispy head that disappeared within seconds, leaving no lacing behind; not unusual for the style. Aroma was decently tart with cherries and lemon, mildly acetic. More mellow tart/sour notes in the taste, nothing jarring or puckering, lemon, chewy cherry, acetic acid, fruitcake, dank grass, definite woody quality in the finish. Medium body, soft low carbonation, higher alcohol barely detectable. Pretty good overall.

Bottle pour at the bottle share hosted by Adam Fine Wine & Liquor held at Sophie’s Place in Redondo Beach, CA.

Pours a hazy orange with a foamy beige head that fades to nothing. No lacing on this one. Smell is sour and tart with some grain, fruit, and slight wood aromas. Taste is much the same with a really acidic quality and a woody finish. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is quite tasty but really sour.

Some gentleman shared this at the Dive. Thanks!

A - Poured into a tulip a hazy golden hue with a fluffy two finger head that leaves a thick blanket.

S - Aromas of rather funky saison notes, horse blanket, light lemon, earthy.

T - Taste is nice and funky, very funky saison, light lemons, earthy barnyard very nice.

M - Mouthfeel is super carbonated was a slow gusher.

O - Overall this was a very tasty beer, think this is mislabeled on here as a Flanders this is not. Clearly this is a funky saison. Tasty.
