Side Project Saison Du Ble

Poured into a wine glass from a 750ml bottle.

Pours a nice golden straw color with a nice bright slight orange hue with a slight haze. There is a nice quarter inch white head that is pretty dense and recedes quickly down to a thin film.

Aroma is pretty nice. Notes of mild lemon tartness in the nose with some nice white grape vinous character as well. Notes of woody musty oak are present in the nose as well as some grainy and mildly sweet wheat notes. Fresh citrusy tartness and some slightly buttery vinous and funky wood notes.

Flavor is pretty awesome. Grainy and bready notes that are earthy and sweet start things off with a back note of mild lemony tartness. Tartness is milder than De Fermier and there is a pretty noticeable woody must to the brew along with some barnyard and husk notes. Great notes of mild vinegar are also present. Overall nice and dry as a saison should be. Sooo good.

Bottle opened at Perennial 7/3/14 for on-site consumption. 2 bottles split between 3 people.

A - Pours a lot like Fermier with the yellowy white hazy. White foam head this dissipates back into the glass.

S - Citrusy funk tartness comes up on the nose with white wine notes

T - Taste follows the nose wight he citrusy mild tartness and funk that reminds me somewhat of fernier with a little more tart and citrusy

M - Nice card light mouthfeel

O - This reminds me a lot of Fermier but not quite as good. Not overly complex but definitely worth going after. I drank about a bottle and a fourth to myself
