Notes: Saison brewed with a whole lot of malted oats and NY wildflower honey. Fermented and conditioned in one of our large French oak foudres for over three months. Brewed in collaboration with our good friends at @otherhalfnyc.

Thanks to alefish for this 500ML bottle with light purple waxing & parchment-style label. Split with my wife.

The top pops & the bottle begins to slowly fizz over; ribald carbonation. The pour yellow, pale & opaque, & I pour just a touch too much. A few globs of brown, shit-colored yeast mar the surface & slowly move to congeal around the edges. Not very appealing. The nose is yeast & wood.

Oat Potion is supremely mild. Wildflower honey, lemon zest, strong yeast greet my innards. The yeast - oh, whatever it is, it’s overpowering & distracting. Oak plays strong back-up, lending needed depth & drier than your driest dry hump. Lick of tartness right on the end. Easy to drink.

Weirdly good & dull simultaneously, the oak saves this from anonymity. Decent enough.

My first saison ever and it didn't disappoint.

The look was a bright yellow with a nice head. Tons of carbonation. The smell is so fruity. For me it gave off a wine smell but for others it was apple juice or other juice like characteristics. The taste was basically like a sour apple, just great. I don't know what to expect for feel since it was my first but it was nice, didn't linger too long on the sour and you can taste most flavors.

Overall just a great beer.

Bottle purchased at release last Sunday. I must say that the releases are much more enjoyable these days, no real need to get there early. Show up 30 mins after opening and you pretty much walk in and purchase bottles.

Poured into a large snifter. Look- pours hazy yellow with an impressive white head that shows some bubbles throughout as it starts to settle. Good lacing as well. Off to a good start. Smell- Tart, with some wheat and spice, a little bit of pepper and coriander. Taste - very good, tartness with some mellowness from the honey which takes on a bit of sweetness to balance the tart. Has a wonderful wheat taste from the oats. Really a nice blend with depth and presence to all ingredients. Feel- for me the most enjoyable part of the beer. Very full even creamy sensation. This was really good. Overall- I would have to say that there is nothing that stands out as needing improvement. Quaffable for sure. I will keep the remaining bottles for a summer day for happy hour on the deck at the beach. Well done all around, a winner

A nice tart taste with a smooth finish. Pours a cloudy golden blonde with great head.

Such a great Saison. Mild tartness that's balanced very nicely from the honey. Really nice full body that leads to a great drinking experience. Glad I got to try it
