I likely had the first or second sample at WVRST tap takeover.This was the collaboration saison with Ian of Amsterdam (although not credited on official list) aged in an apple cider barrel. The cider gives it a ice sour edge. The initial smell and taste is very winey. saison spices come through definitely in the secondary. Golden yellow.

Serving type: on-tap

On tap at WVRST, Great Lakes Movember Project X. Served in a tulip.

Paler golden yellow, light white head with mild retention and light lace. Nose lightly sour, some white wine, lemon, slight barrel with a touch of funk, green apple and pear. Taste is sour, light lemon, green apple, slight funk. Medium feel, a bit spritzy and a pucker in the finish. Flavourful and refreshing, light enough to consume large quantities of. This is being aged via the solera method, can't wait to try future iterations of this.

Hazy blonde colour, one finger of white head, goos retention, lots of lace. Smell is quite funky with lots of tart fruit, apple, lemon, spicy points, light oak, some acidic/balsamic as well I also got a little bit of chlorine at times. Taste is full of tart apple and fruit, spice, lemon, yeasty funk, quite tart throughout, more fruits in the finish. Light-medium drying carbonation, medium-full feel. Solid stuff here, tons of apple and fruity funk, very drinkable and enjoyable.
