I was expecting a Saison, but tasted more like an American Wild Ale to me. Pretty tart with some fruit/citrus flavors, but I detected plastic/rubber off flavors. I'm hoping that this was a one off bottle issue and not the entire batch. Great body for 4.8%. Aroma is nice citrus and tartness, but I also get the plastic phenols. Color is between orange and amber, a bit cloudy, but not off-putting. You definitely get barrel and chardonnay, but the plastic ruins it for me. I've liked many of the Side Project beers, this one didn't do it for me.

Pour is a hazed deep amber with a dark center and white head with some larger bubbles on top. Nose is very big but quite messy. Tons of lemon and dirty muddled wheat, aggressive tang and marmalade with a hint of fish. Taste is quite sour, a bit of chemical cleaner, loads of funky lemon, lighter yeast with an aggressive carbonation and quite a dry finish. Fuller body for the style, not really well integrated.

Thanks to Wowcoolman for sharing this one at GRG1313's tasting.
Pours a murky orange-brown with a foamy bone head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, funk, and Brett aromas. Taste is much the same with sour grain, funk, earth, and Brett flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with nice sour and funk qualities in the taste.

Cloudy pear like color lends to the overall experience as pear seems prevalent. The aroma had orchard pear and Apple with a cidery sour and peppery scent. The flavors followed with pear and Apple but the sour is more balsamic and white wine. Though sour and tart the feel is smooth and seems more like a cider. Very enjoyable beer.
