Bottle poured into tulip. Hazy orange-yellow with soapy white head that leaves streaks of lacing. Aroma brings brett funk, green oak, tart citrus and grapes, and light malt. Flavors are tart citrus, barnyard funk, oaky bitterness, and earthy throughout. Medium body, thin texture, moderate-high carbonation, and a dry finish.

Batch 12 of 2014. Pours lemon-juice yellow with a thin head -- not much carbonation at this point. Not sure how it was cellared.

Smells like scored lemon rind with a bit of funk. Decent amount of oak but well-balanced, a bit of toasted white bread, and the smallest bit of spice, but mostly sour lemon.

Taste is very similar to the nose. Starts with mildly tart lemon juice with some nice oak, moving through notes of funk, and a smooth, bready finish with very subtle notes of coriander or spice and lingering citrus. Seems at least a little under-carbed, but I would probably guess that's the age at play.

Nice lemon sour tasting saison. Faint taste of oak barrel. Very well done saison. Wish I could get this on the regular
