Poured into a Side Project long stemmed tulip glass from a 750ml bottle.
Pours a a hazy and slightly muddled dark orange with some nice copper hues. Some mild yet bright pinkish hues can also be perceived. There is a nice quarter inch head that forms that is pretty dense and slightly off-white. The head recedes pretty quickly though down to a nice thick ring around the glass. (4.5)
Aroma is pretty yummy and enticing. Starts off with some vinous and berry like tartness. Notes of mild raspberry mixed in with some nice slightly tart white wine acidity. There is some nice earthy, rustic and funky grain notes in the nose as well. Notes of fresh cut hay as well as some funky and musty barnyard notes. The rustic grain s very complimentary to each aspect of the brew to include the mild tartness and the wood notes. (4.5)
Flavor follows the nose quite well. Starts off with slight citric (lemony) tartness with some notes of balsamic vinaigrette. The tartness is quite mild and approachable. The tartness has some notes of berries especially in the finish. The grain notes are exquisite. Notes of fresh cut hay, bread and earthy malty grain say present throughout the middle and end of this brew. The finish is very dry with tart berry notes and a delicious lingering midl tartness. Mouthfeel is on the lighter side similar to a nice fresh saison but the flavors are complex and the mouthfeel goes well with the complex and rich flavors.
Another wonderful brew. Takes Saison to another level by blending a couple of Saisons with some other "wild" beers. Such great grain notes in the brew with great berry and citric tartness.
