Poured into a tulip glass from a 750ml bottle. Shared with my wife.
Pours a very nice pale golden color. There is a nice thine white head that is about a quarter of an inch tall. It is medium dense and recedes pretty quickly down to a thin film.
Slight notes of tartness mixed in with some nice wheaty notes. Subtle and yummy mild lemon notes and some nice grainy bread notes and sweetness. It is very clean with some nice slight fruity sweetness in the nose. There are some nice woody barrel notes in the nose with some barnyard funk and mild sweet yeasty esters.
Flavor starts off with a very nice mild lemony tartness mixed in with some good woody funk. Nice notes of mild hay and musty wood. There are nice vinous and white wine notes of mild sugary sweetness. Bready notes of grain are present and intermingled with some slight fruit juice sweetness, nice funk and good vinous tartness. Body is light and refreshing.
Overall this is a very nice saison. Seems to have more traditional notes and some good woody funk. Nice job!

A: Clear golden yellow, with a massive white head that recedes to a thin film of bubbles on the surface. High levels of carbonation initially.
S: White wine, orange zest, and a bit of funk. Hints of tropical fruit sweetness and oak in the background. I'm guessing brett c was a major player. Definitely inviting.
T: Juicy tangerine, tart lemon, and white wine in foreground. Taste fades to tannic oak, crisp malt, and a hint of minerality I don't know how to place. Very drinkable, could put a few of these down pretty quickly without realizing it is 7%.
M: Light/medium mouthfeel with a lingering dry and slightly tannic finish.
O: Very easy drinking and enjoyable Saison. Reminiscent of a drier white wine. Wish I grabbed another bottle to cellar to see if the suspected brett c added a little more funk.
