500 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 11/9/2017. Pours slightly hazy pale golden yellow color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin spotty lace cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of big tart/sour lemon, lime, orange, grapefruit, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, papaya, mango, melon, strawberry, guava, red/green apple, white grape/wine, peppercorn, oak, hay, straw, herbal, grass, wheat, cracker, and white bread; with lighter notes of leathery/musty/lacto funk, white wine vinegar, and yeast/oak earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/funky/spicy/acidic yeast, pale/wheat malts, and oak barrel notes; with great strength. Taste of big tart/sour lemon, lime, orange, grapefruit, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, papaya, mango, melon, strawberry, guava, red/green apple, white grape/wine, peppercorn, oak, hay, straw, herbal, grass, wheat, cracker, and white bread; with lighter notes of leathery/musty/lacto funk, white wine vinegar, and yeast/oak earthiness. Light-moderate lactic tang/tartness; peppery yeast, and oak tannin spiciness on the finish. Lingering notes of tart lemon, lime, orange, grapefruit, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, papaya, mango, melon, strawberry, guava, red/green apple, white grape/wine, peppercorn, oak, hay, straw, herbal, grass, wheat, cracker, white bread, light funk/vinegar, and yeast/oak earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/funky/spicy/acidic yeast, pale/wheat malts, and oak barrel flavors; with a great malt/tartness and yeast/oak spiciness balance; with no puckering flavors after the finish. Moderate increasing dryness from tart/tang/spiciness and carbonation. Medium-plus carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp, bready/grainy, and acidic/tangy/tannic balanced mouthfeel that is great. Minimal warming alcohol for 6.4%. Overall this is an awesome sour/wild saison. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/funky/spicy/acidic yeast, pale/wheat malts, and oak barrel flavors; very smooth, crisp, and easy to drink with the modestly spicy/acidic/tannic/drying finish, not overly lactic. Outstanding Brett, Bacteria, and Saison yeast complexity; nice oak presence and pale/wheat malt backbone against acidity. A really enjoyable offering, and spot on style example as expected.
