Bottle into second Anniversary SARA stem.

Appearance is a radiant dark straw color (really striking), hazy body, and compact one finger white head that leaves a nice thin cap atop the beer. A lovely beer to look at to say the least.

Aroma is juicy tangerine, mandarin, blood orange, tropical mango, peach purée, white grapes, soft spicy saisonesque phenols, and the lightest touch of barrel. I mean, DAMN, this smells better than a million dollars. Just tons of citrus, and I mean any citrus you can think of, gorgeous white grape touch, nice teasing oak, and an apple/pear edge.

Taste reveals a quenching lacto presence and lemonade-like tartness. I mean it's really citrus forward on the palate. Yet it's lime, blood orange, and ruby red grapefruit that dominate that citrus character. The oak is a bit more aggressive on the taste but comes in to help balance out the citrus. White wine has a grip on the whole charade while brilliantly coming in to maximize complexity is the Brett and saison yeast blend of spice and funk. Wow...

Body on this is in the sturdy light category and the carbonation is spot on, fluffy yet not spritzy. A substantial lactic pucker and at times seems aggressive but at the end of the day it's wonderfully played. An oaky dryness lingers on the palate after the finish.

This is the embodiment of a near perfect barrel aged saison. It's hard to find any faults really. Everything seems to be there in just the right amount. Love how the barrel interplays with the rest of beer and love the way it still tastes like a true saison. Carbonation is wickedly great as sometimes this style suffers in that category. Now if only SARA/Triple Rock would make this a regular part of their line-up. Among the best of the best, I'm savoring every sip!
