Bottle: Poured a hazy golden color ale with a medium white head with light retention. Aroma of funky yeast with vinous notes is quite interesting. Taste is a mix of vinous notes with some citrusy notes and some barnyard notes. Body is about average with good carbonation. I really enjoyed the barnyard notes in this one but I would prefer it even more if the acidity was more subdued.

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy deep orange. Small white head. A little leggy with some lacing.

Smell - Orange and grassy hops. Light acidity. White wine.

Taste - Very hoppy. Orange and grassy hops. White wine is much sharper. Oak. Tartness builds and dies off quickly.

Mouthfeel - Medium light body. Well carbonated.

Overall - Reminiscent of Juicy. I like the wine barrel and level of hoppiness.

Pour is hazed golden amber with a small amount of tight white head. Nose has a strong bit of vinous notes with a hint of cheesiness. Has a light saison yeast and a fair bit of citrus. Taste is a bit more flat in the flavor, still tons of wine with a cheesy note and a faint touch of farmhouse yeast. Finish is a bit thin, soft carbonation, gets slick in back.
