Chardonnay barrel-fermented Saison that uses our house blend of Brett and bacteria. Batch 1 spent 3 months in oak and then 3 months bottle conditioning. Bright citrus, billowy mouthfeel, classic funk round out the flavor profile of this rustic Saison.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy bright orange. Nice white head. Medium collar and nice lacing.

Smell - White wine. Orange and lemon acidity. Some tropical fruits. A little oak.

Taste - Oak and nice wine barrel presence. Hefty malt. A bit of stone fruit. A little astringent. Light tartness, kinda lemony.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Very light tartness. Medium low carbonation.

Overall - I'm going to sound overly critical here, so I only say this in comparison to the best of wine barrel saisons. This is just a little too sweet and malty to compare. Still a great beer, but doesn't quite compare.
