I'd call this beer a not so poor man's Saison du Fermier. It really delivers on almost all those same notes. I did not get a lot of wine character or barrel/oak on this beer, but it didn't need it. Lively nose with some lemon, hay, and almost a light spice like ginger. The taste is all you'd want from a wild saison. I get a ton of brett and just some nice lemony tartness. The carb is also great for a real bounce to the mouthfeel. I'd drink this anytime I could find it.

Thanks to Dan for sharing and hosting :thumbup:
Quick review from written notes.

Bright gold with a thin skim across the top, drippy arcs of lace around the sides of the glass.

White wine and barrel aromas.

Tart grape fruitiness, light cheese rind funkiness. Goes pretty nicely together. Medium bodied with a smooth feel. Overall very enjoyable and easy to drink.
