750ml bottle of batch 5. Bottled 7/2013. Poured into a Hill Farmstead stemmed glass today, 4/24/2014.
A- hazy straw yellow body with a slight orange hue. Thick, effervescent three finger white head that recedes to one finger quickly and retains for a long time after. Tons of thick, sticky lacing.
A- white wine, oak, wheat character, funk, yogurt tartness, slight vinegar, pale malt. Explosive nose that is very complex indeed.
F- even better than it smells. Tons of white wine, wheat, funk and apple cider tartness. Some vinegar as well, with a nice wet oak presence. This is incredibly complex and interesting.
M- medium bodied, well carbonated but a bit lower than that of Florence. So drinkable, lots of white wine character perfectly complements the tart wheat aspects.
O- I see what the big deal is. Showcases a perfect saison blended with white wine character. This rates as one of the best I've had from Shaun, and I still cannot think of a better wine barrel-aged saison out there.
