3.96/5  rDev -6.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

33cl swing top bottle served in my Treebs branded tulip.

A: Pours a hay orange color with a thick 2 fingers of pure white head forming on the pour. The retention on the head is great as it is heavy and thick Sticky and clumpy lace is left down the entire glass.

S: Oaky with a nice wine profile. Light, fruity and grapey with a sweet malt profile. The flavors blend nicely together with a body of yeast that provides a funk and dryness.

T: The saison style comes out more in the taste. Dry yeast with some stone fruit and a little cracker sweetness from the malts. The oak barrel comes back on the back end with some wine, red grape and a little fruity sweetness. Mild tartness.

M: Light bodied with a medium carbonation level. A creamy mouthfeel with a sweet finish.

O: Pretty nice overall. Balanced with a nice wine oak barrel presence. Would have liked a little more tartness.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A: Glowey straw gold beer. Giant cream colored head. Sticks to the glaass like cream cheese cake frosting. Big clumpy goodness.

S: Aroma reminds me of a more tart orval. Sweet dandelions, warm summer farmy smells, soft orangy citrus, wild stinky yeast, very floral.

T: Very dry, floral, puckering lemon rind tart, sweet crackery breadiness. Moderately acidic. Nicely done.
