First had: on tap at F&M, Ambler, PA

Listed as a saison aged for two months on wine barrels.

This is a beer with potential, but I think it hasn't quite reached it yet, and I'd be interested to see how (or if) this one progresses with the years. On the other hand, this is a beer made to be more on the sessionable side, and not a "big beer," so you can't go in expecting a RR Damnation or something. A medium amber body, slightly hazy, with a small white head that receded to a thin layer of bubbles but laced nicely. Aroma was actually quite vinous, with notes of caramel and herbal hops. Taste of toasted grains, a more subtle wine quality than was picked up in the aroma, woody, leafy. Light-medium body and quite drinkable. In an attempt at constructive criticism, I'd sum this beer up by saying: it's good, but the recipe needs a little tweaking to make it great.

*Edit - Already showing improvement in the bottle.
