Much thanks Jim. Poured from the bottle into a tall wine glass.

Slightly murky, minor gush off open like typical HF Saisons. Solid topaz gold body with a bright white head. Mild gush but head has to pour aggressive for some creation. Always leaves a puck to simple even collar. No lacing.

Large brett nose. Medium acid body, hints of green leafy herbs like sage and thyme. Large strong buttery ghee component but not diacetyl sensing. Great warmth and mild green leafy hop. Slightly indistinct herbality as it warms.

Palate hits nicely. Sharp white pepper finish, and butter thick palate feel. Chewy sensing wheat (possibly) with earth hop dirt. Perfect balance of acid with the buttery sense providing some pastry dough sweetness. Light mouthfeel but large aromatics that carry with nothing distracting. Great mouthfeel that carries the flavors nicely, with some moderate carbonation and oaky roundness.

It may not be my favorite beer that Shaun has ever made, but it's a great creation.

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Bottled 7/2013.

Appearance - Pale orange. Hazy body. Nice white head. Thick collar.

Smell - Wine barrel saison is immediately prevalent. White wine. Oak. A little bit of yogurt lactic aroma. The lambic pushes through in the back. White pepper. Some hay and funk. Lemony acidic aroma.

Taste - Has that same lactic sourness. White wine right up front. Oak and some funky cheese flavors. Grainy malt. A little bit of sweetness in the back. Lingering oaky finish.

Mouthfeel - It isn't crisp, but it is light. Well carbonated with a pleasant sourness.

Overall - Truly superb. I never quite got past the lactic sourness, but nonetheless, I really loved it.
