Side Project Saison du Fermier
Poured into a wine glass at the Side Project Release 9-28-2013
Copied from notes on my iPhone.
Pours a nice bright yet hazy golden straw yellow color. Golden hues on the edges with a nice dense and frothy head. Very tiny white bubbles pack in there giving the brew a whipped cream or meringue-like looking head. (5.0)
Aroma is delicious. Starts off with some grainy and hay notes followed by some great barnyard funk. Then some sharp lemony tartness hits the nostrils. Nice white whine vinous notes with some woody notes in the nose. The brew has some wonderful saison aromas with some mild pear and apple sweetness that mix well with the woody oak notes and the mild tartness. (4.75)
Flavor is wonderful. This brew is pretty impressive. Starts off with some sharp lemony tartness mixed in with some good fresh grain and fresh baked bread notes. Some nice phenolic and funky barnyard notes come up as well as woody oak notes. There is an underlying sugary and fruity sweetness that balances stuff out very well. And the vinous and white grape skin character of the brew. The brew is light and refreshing and has a nice dry character to the finish. The brew has wonderful playful carbonation that cleans the palette after each sip. (5.0) (4.75)
Overall this brew is delicious. I love the way the wine barrel adds some tartness and vinous notes. The interplay between the saison funk and some of the very mild fruit sweetness I near flawless. Well-done Side Project. (5.00)

The nose is light lemon, barnyard funk and white vinegar. On a first sip, this is a light and balanced saison that leans more towards the tart side. This has light vinegar and lemon as well as slight funk on the backend. The finish is dry and that dryness lingers on the tongue after the beer is gone. The body is a bit thin overall which would make this one that you could drink continuously on a hot day.
