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.

Another stellar release from the good folks at Forest & Main. I respect the fact that they reserve the right to adjust limit bottles when they go on sale to ensure that everyone walks away with something. - other places near them could follow suit. As a result, their releases are quite enjoyable with no line cutting, etc that shows up routinely at other releases. These guys have it going on for sure.

Poured from a bottle that reminds me somewhat of MST3K; great artwork is always a landmark of their bottles and this one does not disappoint.

A - Poured into a Cape May Brewing Company snifter with a nice white head that steps back after announcing itself leaving some heavy lacing and legs on the glass. Pours with a nice yellow/orange hue.

S - Funky and sticky consistent with what you expect from a saison/farm ale. A little bit of funk and slightly acidic from the barrel and hops.

T - Tart with some citrus and a good amount of barrel oak to make it have a slight bite but still be very pleasant. Malty, hoppy, sticky, oakey, and biting, delightful as a nice beer with some Thai or Mexican food would be my thoughts for pairing or simply to kick back and enjoy on the beach as I did over the holidays.

M - Very rich and satisfying, not spritzy by any means.

O - Another winner from the gang and a beer that is a nice addition to their continuing stellar lineup. The best place in the burbs for sure.
