Split with JLindros.
A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice crystal clear golden hue with a one finger creamy head that leaves wonderful lacing and a big creamy blanket.
S - Aromas of brett upon brett, sour funk, vinous blueberry wine barrels. Quite nice and appealing.
T - Taste is nice and sour tart barrel, delicious brett, funky blankets. There is a lingering bitter tannic note on the finish that doesn't jive with me. Aside from that this is nicely tasty.
M - Mouthfeel is super crisp, nicely carbonated. Very drinkable.
O - Overall I really enjoyed this beer, wish there wasn't this bitter tannic thing going on but yeah, this was worth it.

500ml bottle purchased at the '13 Goods from the Woods Festival at Oxbow, poured into respective festival glass.
A- Cap cracks off with a nice hissing sound leading to a somewhat slow-rising gusher (have that glass ready!). Pours a crystal clear golden with a nice 1.5-finger foamy/bubbly head that has nice retention receding to a thin wispy layer. Decent carbonation which is fairly fast rising and has a nice consistency.
S- Nice refined barnyard funk, a bit of hay, clean saison yeast, faint blueberries that blend in with the saison yeast, slight tart lemon peel, and a bit of oak. Fairly aromatic with a nice complexity.
T- Lightly tart lemons balancing with a hint of blueberries, light clean barnyard funk balancing with the saison yeast, finishes with tart lemon peel mixed with blueberries and a touch of oak. Nice clean saison qualities that meet a tamed funk and light tart fruits. The blueberry wine barrels add a nice uniqueness bringing out subtle balanced blueberry flavors.
M- Medium bodied, very clean, slightly acidic, carbonation adds a fizzy feeling on the palate, very easy drinking.
O- This was a nice unique barrel-aged saison that used great use of local fruit flavored wine barrels to produce a nice unique beer. I wouldn't say this is the best wine-barrel aged saison I've had but it definitely ranks among some of the better one's I've tried. This is without a doubt worth trying and I wish I picked up more bottles when I had the chance.
