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

Poured from a 375 mL bottle into a stemmed glass. This was bottled 08/19/14 so is pretty fresh.

Appearance: Pours a hazy lemon-yellow/translucent light amber and gives a fluffy head of a couple fingers which fades slowly to a white layer atop the beer, leaving lacing. (4.5)

Smell: Nice funky lemons, grapes, green apples, citrus rinds, pepper, oak, a dash of cloves. Nice balanced, refreshing aroma. (4.5)

Taste: Interesting - different than the aroma. Some light lemon/citrus up front, followed by oak, a different type of funk, wheat, citrus rinds, grapes. Really mellowed out taste - very smooth but misses out on some of the best parts of the aroma. Not sour in the taste which is interesting. (4.25)

Mouth-feel: Medium to well carbonated with a medium, creamy body. Super smooth, especially in the finish. (4.5)

Overall: This one really warmed up to me. The aroma was wonderful right up front - but the flavor surprised me but got better and better - just so mild, drinkable and refreshing. A bit of nice funk and plenty of citrus. A delicious summer beer for sure. (4.5)

A - One finger of white, bubbly head. OK lacing. Pale, slightly hazy yellow body.

S - Oak and slight funk. Cooking sherry, tart cherry, and breadiness.

T - Mellow grain. Tart and sweet cherry. Tons of raw oak in the finish with slight grassy hoppiness and funk.

M - Light body. Very dry finish which I'm attributing to the oak.

O - Personally, I would have enjoyed a little more age on this in the hopes of mellowing out the oak, but it's a really interesting saison with a lot of depth of flavor.

From 10/02/14 notes. Side by side with Lenage Rye, 12 oz. bottle into a snifter.

Pours a murky yellow color with one finger of white head and moderate to high carbonation. Nose is sour and funky and has some fruity citrus and light fruity pebbles to it. Taste is way more funky, has some wheat, oats, grains, and earthy notes. Medium body and low to moderate carbonation.

Overall I thought this had a great nose, and the taste was good, but funkier and not as great as the nose. An interesting and good beer, but I prefer the Lineage Rye.

3.8/5  rDev -1.6%

Bottle. Pours a bright, cloudy yellow with a thinner, white head that bubbles down to a thin seam. Not a lot of lacing. Aroma is still Saison-esque but it has a funky quality to it. Some oak and Saison spice. Flavor is funkier than I initially remembered it being (tried at Belgian Beer Fest last year). Somewhat tart. Still has Saison flavors. Slightly spicy. Wheat presence is detectable. Some oak. Fruity. Body is pretty light but it has texture. Medium carbonation. Better than I remember it being. Always down for a Trillium.
