look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 5

Saison aged for 9 months in a chardonnay barrel. Used Westmalle yeast
Source/Serving: Draft

Smell: Very nice fresh, slightly tart apple and grape notes. Slightly sour, being more fresh than crisp. The wine/grape notes are perfectly balanced. Some grassy hops lie just underneath and is nice.

Taste: Tart, crisp, and fruity. Super refreshing - the PERFECT light summer beer. Fresh apple/grape flavors up front with just a hint of a sour touch. Perky carbonation tickles the tongue with a pinch of spicyness just below the surface. The middle has a touch of oakiness from the barrel aging and even more fruit flavors. Some definite Chardonnay notes with a play between sweet and sour going on. The finish shows a little more wine character, oakiness, and a sour, vinous edge.

Notes: Just a beautiful combination.
