4.08/5 rDev -3.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Vintage 2009. Drank November, 2013
Appearance: a reddish orange color. completely opaque. it foamed up when i opened it but very little foamy tan head when poured. a lacing stays behind around the edges. a pretty tasty looking beer
Smell: immediately hits with vinous characteristics. fruity and oaky. very light brett funk. its a good smell but just a bit weak
Taste: opens up grapes and wine-like flavors. develops into a oak and brett flavor. those flavors dominate but cover up a nice yeasty belgian flavor. very complexity beer that comes from the aging. if you don't look hard you could miss the underlying beer.
Mouthfeel: pretty light. some feel from the saison. but a lot of brett funk and wood left behind
Overall: a great and complex beer. a bit pricy but is a nice treat when you are in the mood for something like this. I'd love to do a side by side of this age and a fresher one to see how it develops

4.1/5 rDev -2.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: 1/4 inch head, low carbonation, gold in color, hazy
Smell: oak and dark fruit
Taste: oak, dark fruit, toasted malt, and hay
Mouthfeel: sweet and funky, light in body, medium carbonation
Overall: An excellent saison that tastes like it is mixed with a healthy helping of fruit juices. I think this beer is right up there with the best that Allagash makes. I would certainly get this on tap if again.

3.96/5 rDev -6.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4
Poured from a corked & caged 750 mL bottle into a Brewer's Art goblet. Dated October 2013. Cork hit the ceiling, but no gushing.
A: Amber/rose-colored body with good clarity. Scant white head that rapidly disappears. Light lacing.
S: Light brett with vinous quality. Grapes and more subdued stone fruit. Mild earth.
T: Tart initially with a dry, even-handed Brett character shortly thereafter. There is the presence of red wine and associated tannins. Mostly dry finish. Lightly hopped. Alcohol presence is average for the ABV. Tartness lingers in the aftertaste.
M: Light-to-moderate carbonation with a fairly light body. Open on the palate.
O: Solid brew, if a bit less impressive than expected. Probably should have sat on this one a bit longer. I was hoping for a bit more complexity, but fans of wine barrel aging and brettanomyces will enjoy this.
