3.65/5  rDev -12.9%

Appearance - Pours a light amber yellow, relatively clear. A thin white head quickly forms and dies down. Very little lacing, after a few minutes no head remains.

Smell - Aroma is overwhelmingly cider like. Smell apples, slight citrus and some barnyard muskiness.

Taste - The beer is modestly sour and tart. The taste is very un-beer-like and I do not mean that in an entirely negative way. This is tasty and refreshing, and would be a great drink on a hot summer day. Taste is dominated by apple, vinegar and white wine. Some grassy, barnyard flavors, lemon citrus and perhaps a little oak. Hops and malt flavors are undetectable to me. I am really amazed at how apple wine like this beer is, not your typical Saison. Very tasty if you are looking for something like this. I think this would be more interesting with a stronger hop or malt presence to balance things out.

Mouthfeel - A bit thin. My bottle had very slight carbonation which I see differs a bit from other reviews. The flatness of the pour may have effected the taste profile and my review. I will try to weak out another bottle for comparison someday.

The beer has a big fruity, tart winey nose joined by a touch of wet horse blanket and barnyard with some light biscuit and lemon in the background.
It pours hazy peach under a thin white cap that quickly reduces to a film.
The palate is tart all the way through with traces of lemon, fruit, light biscuit and funk.
Very fine soft carbonation, medium low with medium body.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: Pours a very hazy medium golden yellow to orange in color with light to moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and some lemon yellow + apricot highlights. The beer has a finger tall dense foamy off-white head that reduces to a large patch of medium thick film covering about 95% of the surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of funky wet hay and horse blanket funkiness from the brett with slightly less strong aromas of oak from the barrel aging.

T: Upfront there is a light flavor of grainy, pale, and wheat malts with some light to moderate flavors of lemon citrus. There are moderate flavors of vinegar and a distinct brett funkiness that reminds me of the barnyard. Mildly tart but not overly sour.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Light to moderate amounts of acidic prickliness and a light amount of dryness.

O: Very enjoyable and a nice example of a saison with brett that is barrel aged. Tart without being overly sour. Very approachable. Nice amounts of complexity.

From the label: 2014 Batch 13

Appearance: Light hazy golden orange color. Short white head that fades very quickly and leaves no lacing.

Aroma: Musty old barnyard, a bit of pepper, and a bit lemony.

Taste: There is a medium sourness up front, with some funky musty barn flavor, and a bit of a wheat-like grain on the finish. After drinking the beer and waiting for a bit, I get some hop character coming through which is slightly spicy.

Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel is great. It's tart up front but it has a fairly low amount of carbonation. It finishes clean and dry without being puckery from the sourness. Very easy to drink.

Overall: I recommend it and I would drink it again. It's a great tasting saison that isn't over the top sour, and isn't so mellow that it bores you to death. It's right there in the middle where it should be.

Shared with me, $11.50 from Brusin' Ales

Appearance: Hazy gold

Aroma: Sweaty horse, mustard, and pickles. I mean that in the best way possible.

Flavor: Lemon-lime esque tartness, light grain character and shock tarts candy.

Mouthfeel: Bone Dry

Overall: One of my favorite saisons yet. A must try!
