Shared immediately following Saison du Fermier to celebrate my graduation, courtesy Abbbp. Poured from a batch 1 bottle into a Prairie Teku glass.
Appearance: Light yellow/white, incredibly hazy, with a creamy but small head that goes away fast. A thick bubbly crown hangs around for a while afterward though and leaves some healthy lacing.
Smell: Lots of bretty funk, citrusy, fruity. Like any good saison should taste, but pales a bit compared to Saison du Fermier.
Taste: Not very tart, definitely brett funk. A hint of bitterness. Lots of saltine-like cracker malt, with an almost browned, roasted quality to it. Not getting a whole lot of the chardonnay here, or the oak barrel at first, but more of it comes through as the beer sits a bit. Becomes a lot more sour too.
Mouthfeel: Quite high, prickly carbonation. Lingers a while and is quite dry.
Overall: Quite good, like everything Side Project does. Wasn’t as good as the Saison du Fermier that immediately preceded it, but still nothing to shake a stick at.

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
