Batch 2. 500ml bottle poured into a teku

Appearance: Pours a light red, with hints of orange. 1 fingers of white head dissipates to a thick collar. Body is lightly hazy with light visible carbonation.

Smell: Plum, peppery yeast, light earthy funk and some mild oaken.

Taste: Similar to the aroma. Plum, hay, mild funk, fresh grain, light/medium lactic sourness, oak and red grape.

Mouthfeel: Light/medium bodied with a soft, almost lightly creamy mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Finishes mostly dry.

Overall: Another great one in the emptiness series. Worth seeking out.

Another thanks to rudzud for sharing, batch 1.

No real head, somewhat hazy slight golden orange red color.

Nose is pretty nice, big fruity aroma, vinous musty grape and light wine, big Brett funk, barnyard and phenolic acidic sour sharp Brett, oxygenated Brett thing, nice plums juicy.

Taste brings big tart acidic funk, almost lambic like sour acidity, flemmy, nice plum, nice vinous wine flavours, musty skin, etc. Plenty of funky Brett, sour Brett and little barnyard funk. So tart and sour, juicy sour fruit, blends with phenols and big acetic acid, faint tannin there, late, like berry seed. Finish long tart sour fruit and flemmy, vinous, light buttery oak way on the back end.

Mouth is med to lighter bod, little flemmy, lighter carb, big acidity.

Overall pretty good, nice funk, nice sourness and tart fruity with light plum and vinous notes, wish the plum was a bit more.

Bottle pour at the brewpub on Thanksgiving-eve. This is a batch two bottle. Pours purple-ish red with a one finger tall white head, quickly dissipating to a light ring around the edge, leaving small streaks of lace on the sides of the glass.

Smells of plenty of plums, light basement must and barnyard funk, woody oak, bit of wine grape and some bready pale malts. Taste is along the same lines with the plums front and center with the musty funk, oak and chewy malt rounding it all out. Fruity, tart feel from start to finish.

Overall a very nice plum saison. It has plenty of fruit, just needs a bit more musty funk, but that should come with some time in the bottle.
