Blend #1 (of SPON and a saison), April 2017 - poured from a 750mL bottle into my Brasseurs de Garde tulip.

Clear gold liquid supports a very active off-white cap which evaporates rapidly to a faint surface slick. No real lacing or legs.

Concentrated barnyard funk in the nose with hints of white wine, fine ripe cheese, sheep sweat, and lemons disintegrating among autumn leaves. Hints of fruit and grain.

Medium palate entry suggests pear, quince, and hints of rose. The wild notes present more as pepper, leather, and oak, with the vinuous/citrus flavors lower down at first. Pleasant malt bill is both soft from the oats and suggestive of "spice" from the rye - some phenolic character might be derived from the yeast as well. The sourness emerges in the mineral-laden, rustic finish.

Soft, medium-full mouth-feel, but without the carbonation you'd expect from a saison.

I enjoyed this blend, but I'd rather have an excellent saison cut with SPON, SPON alone, or a blend of variously aged SPONs if any were more readily available here. At the price point I am not likely to repurchase this.

A very hazy, bright apricot hue nears opaque and is topped with a moderate, foamy white head that uniformly settles to a creamy light blanket, lifting at the edges in ridges. Retention is low.

Smell is citric, bright and lemony with light, bright peppery oak and apricot spritzed with orange and white grape. As this boisterous, zippy and sense-awakening aroma warms, a minimal, round woody funk arises. Aside from that, it damn near smells like a New England-style IPA, but much more complex.

Taste is pleasantly tart, popping with notes of apricot and white and red grape with yellow apple and a slight, bright peppery oak that blooms with time. It's simple yet infinitely complex, with a moderately bitter finish of orange rind.

Body is light to medium with a medium to full froth and a semi-dry finish. A very deft touch here has developed excellent balance, perfect tartness and light acidity, making for a very drinkable Saison.

Blend #1 2017 vintage

Courtesy of Collins:

Oak barrel, leather, brettanomyces funkiness, 2-row sweetness, milky notes toward the finish, cereal grains, subtle twang. Mild acidity.

Clean funkiness runs throughout. Subtle vanillin.

Balanced and harmonious. The soft mouthfeel is a highlight.

Bottle. White head. Golden orange. Vibrant.

Farmhouse notes all around. Funky and yeasty. Light sour/tart. Smooth. Easy drinking. Very barnyardy with some Brett in the the finish. Lighter flavored.
