look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Very slight chill haze on a glowing pale golden-yellow color. Head is small and bright-white. Clumpy and loose. Ok retention leaves a small wisp of a cap with a bubbly loose collar. Small splotches of lacing. Moderate carbonation on the pour.

Smell: Funky and fruity wheat. Solid wheat backbone with some slightly bready pale malts. Undercooked biscuit. Hits with peach, pineapple, fresh lime juice and zest. A touch of musty basement and grass. Lightly lactic. Lemon and lime. Soft yeast. Oak rounds out the back adding some welcome woody and mild dirt elements. Sweet and tart in good measure. Some pear as well. Perhaps green apple.

Taste: Vague spiciness coupled with an almost nutty finish. Oak shines through adding the aforementioned nuttiness. Deeply woody, like fresh green wood. A touch of pear and apple skin. Mango and some peach as well. Yeast is fluffy and light throwing some vague fruity esters. A touch of banana and a soft peppery spice on the back as well. Malts are a nice compliment, offering up a touch of sweetness with some solid cracker and toasted malt notes. A bit funky with a lactic finish. Hay and grass with a slightly damp earthiness thrown in the mix as well. Warming keeps up the nutty element (chestnuts) and pushes the oak a bit harder. Lactic tart edge smooths it out a bit.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with a slightly below average (medium leaning to light) carbonation. A touch of astringency on the sip and slightly dry on the finish. Juicy initial sip.

Overall: You could claim worse descent.

A solid saison. The oak adds some really unique flavors that don't quite jive with the base beer. It's good, but a little muddled in the long run.
