Oddly green and vegetal. Like celery with a weird oakiness.

Aroma is reminiscent of sweet-tarts, along with a touch of hay, musty grapes, and confectioners sugar.

Flavor is tart and vinous initially, with modest sweetness that soon vacates and is replaced with a dry, earthy, peppery finish. Really opens as it warms, revealing apple and moldy basement notes.

Fairly complex profile, with the perfect saison dryness and spiciness.

Golden straw with a fluffy white cap. Nose is of oak, wine, lemon, grass, skunk, damp hay, and melon. On the palate, lemon and grassiness hit first, with barrel coming in on the back end. Finish is of wine and lemon with some grainy wheat. Lighter body, firm carbonation. This is a damn fine saison filled with barrel character; right in my wheelhouse.
