Bottle pour at the pre-FWIBF bottle share held at the Adelaide Inn in Paso Robles, CA.

Pours a murky yellow with a foamy off-white head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, fruit, white wine, and wood aromas. Taste is much the same with sour grain, fruit, and white wine flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer that is tasty and refreshing.

Bottle shared by yourefragile. Thanks Michael.

the beer appears orange / yellow with a thick, pure white head. Lasting retention with ample lacing. the nose brings brett, oranges, citrus, yeast. Oak and white wine in the flavor with a lemony tartness. Zesty with crisp carbonation. A very tasty beer indeed.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Bright yellow/orange. Hazy. Big white head. Settles to a medium collar.

Smell - Lemony. Wine barrel. Some oak. Even more lemon. Like a lemon Sour Patch aroma.

Taste - Grain. White wine. Oak before the lemon kicks in. Really intense lemon. Tart.

Mouthfeel - Very tart. Well carbonated. Light bodied.

Overall - I expected great things. This doesn't quite live up. The flavors are all there, but in the wrong proportions. No subtlety to it, but I still enjoyed it.

750ml bottle poured into a Drie Fonteinen stemmed glass 9/5/2014.

A- Brilliant straw-yellow, slightly orange tinted, body with a fairly large two finger white head with good retention, eventually dropping into a medium collar. Not much lacing. [4.25]

S- White wine, lemon, oak, must, hints of pale malt sweetness, lactic acidity and a bit of funk. [4.5]

F- Plenty of white wine and lemon, supplemented by oak, a slight hint of caramel, and a fair bit of leather and hay. Not a ton of it, but the funk is there and adds a good bit of complexity to the beer. This is remarkably similar to Hill Farmstead Flora; perhaps it has less white wine barrel and more lactic acidity to it. [4.75]

M- Medium bodied, substantial. Plenty of lemon and lactic acid to go around. Good carbonation. [4.25]

O- Very good wine barrel aged saison, easily one of the best I've had thus far. It's not subtle, but it is quite complex and brings together a very nice blend of lemon, oak and white wine. [4.5]

Final score: 4.575
