From 07/24/15 notes. Had this at Goodnight Sonny's in NYC on the LES; new place.

Pours a hazy golden yellow color with one finger of white head and moderate carbonation evident. Spices, pepper, white wine, fruity malts. Medium body and moderate carbonation. A nice beer. (271 characters)

750mL bottle poured into an oversized snifter.

The beer's got a big frothy head and persists forever. The body is copper-colored and cloudy. Lace is aplenty. 4.25

Lot of wine on the nose. Floral, yeasty and grape qualities. Light maltiness is the only suggestion on the aroma that this is beer. 4

Very much in taste as is the aroma: grapey, wine-like, bubblegum, floral and touches of yeasty, peppery spice. There are touches of plum and other fruit too. Very nice. 4.25

The body is light and feels of light yeast presence, sweetness and a vinous quality. Some hints of solvent feel suggest this beer may have been hot fresh, so I'm glad to drink it with some age on it. 4

This beer is nice. The base beer is tasty and the wine qualities are great. (754 characters)

A: The beer is rather hazy pale yellow in color and has a moderate to high amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high bright white head that died down, leaving a thick collar around the edge of the glass and a thin head covering the remainder of the surface.
S: Light aromas of Chardonnay wine barrels and oak are present in the nose; the oak becomes a little stronger as the beer warms up.
T: The taste initially starts out with lots of flavors of oak and associated vanilla—once the beer warms some spicy hints of rye also become noticeable.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. The oats seem to lend a bit of smoothness to the mouthfeel and coat your mouth a little bit.
O: If you like oak aged beers, especially those that impart flavors of vanilla, this is a really nice choice for the summer months as the underlying saison base keeps things lighter in body.

I originally had this at the Brooklyn Brewery poured by Garret Oliver at a really fun ghost bottle event. At the time I thought it was a pretty good Saison with an interesting grain profile. I had this again recently and was blown away by the complexity of the grain characteristics. The appearance is interesting; the bottom two thirds of the beer is a deep honey color while the top has a dark sandy appearance. The beers poured with about two fingers of thick foam. Its hard to describe the amount of things going on in the aroma. A bombardment of cereal is the first thing I get, tapering off into pepper, honey, and just the right amount of funkiness to bring things into perspective. Along with all the aforementioned aromas the taste produces a coriander like quality that always makes me think of fruit loops. The carbonation carries all of these amazing qualities to the exact high it needs and lets go at the right moment. Truly a superior saison. Special thanks to Sam at Other Half for explaining the name of the beer to me. (1,036 characters)
