004: 8/10/13 - 22 ounce bottle poured into a 12 ounce tulip.

Just pure diacetyl. The smell and taste both remind me of going to see movies at the AMC 30 when I was a kid. Remember when you could get a whole cup of popcorn butter and pour it over whatever you were eating? Think about how nasty that is. That's freaking nasty.

22 oz bottle of the FUN 004 batch pours a hazed gold color with a dense cap of white head. Excellent retention and lace.

Nose is similar to Barn Burner with some pinot gris added in. The spices used in BB are thankfully muted and this smells much better than the base beer...I did not rate Barn Burner very high - I hate spices added to a saison. Still sweeter than I would like to see though and the malts heavier.

The tartness from the green grapes/wine barrels evens out the sweetness nicely. Much better than Barn Burner me thinks. The spices have toned down from age and are almost to a bearable level. The wine barrels have added some much needed depth and white wine could not have been a more perfect choice. Love the tartness added and the wood is mild but noticeable. While not my favorite from the FUN series, I thought it was an immense improvement on the base beer.

Seeing as how I've been trying to get more into Saisons (especially wine barrel-aged) I was very excited to try this puppy.

For all of the back and forth in terms of ratings for this beer, I thought it was right in the middle. Simple Saison flavor profile enhanced slightly by the Chardonnay aspect. Being a wine drinker, I definitely appreciated the malic acid, butter, apple, pear and oak you traditionally find in a nice glass of Chard. Surprisingly tart with a little sweetness to balance out the mouthfeel makes it finish dry for the most part.

Very tasty beer that went down easy. A real treat.

22 oz. bomber poured into pub glass
(drank on 7/21/13)

L: orange, about 75% clear; super thick white head, 1/2-inch thick ... real foamy

S: sour grapes, white wine; hint of yeast, chicago-style pizza crust; more wine as it warms up

T: semi-dry white wine, not much sweetness, slight sour finish; it tastes like bubblegum with all the sweet sucked out of it, very interesting; gets a hefeweizen-banana note over final 1/5, still distinctly lacking in sweet

F: perfect; big carbonation with solid midweight feel ... so drinkable

O: ironically, this barrel-aged version of Karbach's saison is probably more saison-like than the non barrel-aged version ... it tastes like Barn Burner with all the sweet sucked out of it. very interesting and bonus points to Karbach for trying something different that isn't liquid hops
