Pours cloudy gold color with bunch of sediment floating around that leads up to a thick cloudy white head that faded slowly and left good spotty lacing. Active carbonation was visible racing up the brew.

Smells funky and fruity with yeast, lemon zest, orange peel, banana, bubblegum, coriander, pepper, light spices, wet dog hair and earthy funk. Complex with a soft sweetness, there are light oaky notes and candied sugar coming on late in the aroma.

Taste is also funky and fruity with more grains along with rye and some brett, then like the nose there is yeast, lemon, orange peel, bubblegum, coriander, pepper, light spices, barnyard and earthy funk. Its on the sour side but the spices level it out and make it quite complex with a sweetness that seems like it comes from fruit like green apples, tangerine and grapefruit and seem to showcase the hops. There are earthy notes that help hide the 8.5% ABV.

Light, zesty and smooth/slick feeling that went down easy due to very mild carbonation, this was tasty and enjoyable overall. Went well with blackened fish taco lunch and complimented / added to the meal. Way too expensive for a 17 oz bottle, but worth a shot.

Bottle @ beer tasting on 1/31/2015. Pours hazy light golden in color with minimal bubbly effervescent head. Aroma is tart citrus, yeasty funk, and hints of wood. Medium body, nice carbonation with some trub-like particulate. Taste is lemon, white grape, oak and funky yeast elements nicely balanced. Very drinkable saison and the barrel aging adds a nice dimension.
