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.
