Big thanks to Mike for this one. 16oz waxed and capped bottle into Hill Farmstead stemware. Shared with schen9303.

Pours a thick, white ring for a head that just sits atop the brew. Beer is a clear dark copper. Lacing is thick and layered with excellent stick. Real nice.

Nose is grape sweetness, oak and Brett funk. A mellow tartness serves as a nice background.

Opens grape sweetness. Lemon tartness in the middle with notes of oak, Brett, band-aid and some hay. Very well balanced with flavors that are nicely integrated. Ends tart grape seed and skin. Aftertaste is vinous with a mellow woodiness. Excellent.

Light bodied with ample carbonation. Prickly and foamy in the mouth and goes down aggressive and bubbly. Finishes puckering and filmy with a sticky, lingering aftertaste. Very good.

This beer is very well balanced and certainly one of the more mellow of the Emptiness series. Flavors are finely integrated here and even though its a pretty simple flavor profile, its done very well. A real good beer. (1,020 characters)

A- Honey colored with a slight grape tinge. thick creamy head that is suprisingly resiliant for a mixed ferment barrel aged beer

S- Right off the bat you get grapes, grape skin, that leads into some mustyness, ripe melon, oak, very vinious character

T- Grape skins, grape flesh, I get a bold grape jelly kind of taste,not Jammy though. It transitions to the musty melon notes, some hay,earthy grape vine, wheaty malts and ends with a firm tartness that really blurs the line between american wild ale and saison.

M- Good spritzy carbination. Really solid body for a beer that has been aged with a mixed culture. Not thin nor watery. Very substantial mouth feel that really helps back the flavors up.

O- I wasn't sure what to expect from this one but it far exceeded my expectations. This is masturfully created and one of the best saisons I have had to date. This is one of those beers that everything seems to fall into place with every ingredient working in unison to become greater than the sum of the parts. Hope to get this again if/when its released again. Seek this out you won't be sorry. (1,100 characters)

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

500 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Orange body with a darker tinge. Grapefruit juice colored. Hazy. Small white head. Medium collar.

Smell - Ah, nice. Grapefruit. White wine barrel. Oak. Grainy malt. Some grape fruitiness in the back end.

Taste - Pleasantly tart. Less intense on the citrus up front. Grape flavor up front, but only distinguishes itself from the wine barrel with a bit of sweetness. Wine flavor. Oaky. Grapefruit citrus comes back in the end.

Mouthfeel - Nice sourness. Medium light. Well carbonated.

Overall - This is the best beer of the night so far. Great combination of barrel, citrus, and grapes. (639 characters)
