4.13/5 rDev -5.1%
750 mL swing top bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Hazy yellow. Nice white head. Great retention.
Smell - Bretty and oaky. Some farmhouse funk. Some hops. A bit of acidity. Very nice.
Taste - Brighter acidic flavors here, but nothing by way of sour. Grainy. Hops are muted. Grassy and lemony. Nice but not as complex as the nose.
Mouthfeel - Light, well carbonated. Easy drinking.
Overall - Delicious. Gets more acidic as I drink it. Less complex, too, but still good.

4.6/5 rDev +5.7%
combining separate notes for different batches since they aren't listed separately (hint, hint)
Batch #3: a gusher...their base pale ale aged in barrels used for their sour "arboreal"...was sampled about a year ago and my notes alude me...but from what I remember, this beer was funky, acidic, complex, slighty sweet and tart.
Batch #6: a blend of the base beer partially aged in bourbon barrels and partially in blueberry wine barrels. This version was quite tannic, oaky, funky, and complex. A bit of the bourbon...fluffy with layered notes of rye, pepper and white grapes.
Batch #7 (11/1/13): similar to #6...blended from two BBA batches. Tannic, oaky, fluffy mouthfeel. Juicy beer...lots of Brett complexities...stops just short of being tart to me, but one might call it that. This is such a great wild funky farm beer. Saison? Wild? Sour? Farmhouse? Great.
