4.05/5 rDev -11%
Pour is a transparent pale yellow with a thin white head. Nose has a faint farmhouse note to it with a balance of wheat malt. Light oak and some white grape/tannic notes, a bit of lemon, some lacto, and a touch of citric acid. Taste is fairly subtle, nothing overpowering. I thought the citric acid would provide a light burn but it does not. Mostly white grape with hints of tannins. The citrus flavors don't add much, the farmhouse notes have mostly vanished, the lemon comes out stronger as does the lacto. Palate is quite soft with a nice level of carbonation and a dry and fairly sour finish.

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Pale yellow with a slight haze. Small white head.
Smell - Lemony. White wine. Citrus. Mild citrus, but its there. A little acidic.
Taste - Lemony tartness. White white follows. Some oak. Minimal grain. Citrus takes over. It's not super strong, but it's enough to dominate the finish.
Mouthfeel - Light and crisp. Nice tartness. Medium carbonation.
Overall - The citrus masks some of Flora's complexity. Still a very tasty beer.

Thanks to Jeff for this bottle. Bottled 07/2013. Poured in to HF stemmed tulip.
A - Translucent bright yellow colour with a very thin layer of cream coloured head.
S - Funk and oak up front with a bready malt profile. Not getting any of the mandarin at all in the nose.
T - Tart with a nice funk presence at first that give way to a bready malt sweetness and some yeast esters. A hint of mandarin orange flavour and a touch of bitterness in the finish that is not nearly as prevalent as I had hoped or expected. Still a solid oak aged saison.
M - Medium body and somewhat creamy. Moderate carbonation.
