3.6/5 rDev -10.7%
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.

4.19/5 rDev +4%
Growler poured into a tulip.
Amber with 3 fingers of loose, white head. Very low carbonation with good clarity. Great retention leaves behind thick, fluffy rings of lacing.
Peach, white grape, barnyard and nectarine.
Subtle lactic tartness along with notes of peach, tangy wheat and drops of lemon juice. Pinot Grigio wine characteristics. Hints of nectarine, white oak and chestnut. Great barnyard/Brett personality.
Light bodied, tart and refreshing.
A well done sour Saison with an excellent wine barrel character.
