Bottle from the source.
F&M has been cranking out some really good barrel-aged saisons lately, and they've shown quite an improvement since they started.

Poured into a Moeder Seizoen stem glass, a golden-amber color, hazy, with a half-finger of foamy off-white head; nice retention and stratified lacing. Nice aroma, oaky, notes of apple skin and stone fruit, bready malts, spicy/funky yeast. Crisp taste and a bit tangy up front, lots of toasted oak coming through, apple and lemon, herbal hops, grassy funk, toasty bready malts, dry earthy finish. Great balance, medium body, good carbonation. Overall a very good brew, and easily on par with other great names from this brewery like Hermitage and Moeder Seizoen.

The flavor offers sour grape, lemon tartness up front. Then it is balanced out by some wheat and decent funk. The beer dries out nicely with a touch of oak.

A very refreshing brew that offers a wonderful balance of tart, funk, and oak. An "everyday" type of beer that is a great example of the new wild saison style.

Pour is golden amber with about 2 fingers of tight white head. Nose is assertively hopped with a strong musky pineapple character. Faint grainy character up front and the strong hop and fruity brett take over. Taste follows suit, extremely strong pineapple flavors and very hoppy. A bit of funky musk, moderate bitterness in the finish, creamy medium body, nicely carbonated.
