22oz bottle, January 2013
5oz mini tasting snifter

A: Pours out a hazy, bright yellow orange like color. Thin layer of bright white head that sticks around a while before dropping into a collar on the glass. Leaves some sticky lacing trails.

S: You certainly still get the saison character on the nose. That barnyard funkiness. That peppery spice and some hoppy notes too. But that Chard barrel is there as well. It's pretty pronounced, but works well with the base beer.

T: Flavor on this is quite nice. Up front getting that saison spice and the hops on the tip of the tongue. As it progresses to the middle of the mouth, it's some of that vinous wine character meshing with the base beer funk. It's still a saison through and through, but that wine barrel oak helps to soften it up a little bit. Round the flavors. Almost creamy like. Dry white wine close.

M: Medium bodied.

The appearance of this saison/farmhouse ale is much like others. What stood out the most about this beer was the body and finish. The finish had just the right amount of tartness. Muy Bueno!

tart edgy saison. white wine character kicks in substantially. lacy on cloudy light yellow. John's bottle. Good drinkability. Smoothly integrated.

Batch 2. Waxed and capped 500ml bottle into Tired Hands stemware. Shared with schen9303.

Gentle pour yields a .5 finger fine white head with low retention. Beer is a clear yellow. Lacing is minimal with low stick. Average.

Nose is yeasty with hints of cove, coriander and lemon spritz. Sweet, light and refreshing. Moderately aromatic. Solid.

Opens yeast, peppercorn and clove. Light lemon tartness in the middle with coriander and other floral notes. Funk at the end with some spiciness and lemon at the finish. Aftertaste of yeast and a slight hop bitterness. Pretty enjoyable.

Light bodied with ample carbonation. Prickly and lively in the mouth and goes down spritzy and sparkling. Goes down foamy with a clean finish and a soft, yeasty aftertaste. Really nice.

This beer's not quite there yet but I see a lot of potential. The body is great and the flavor just needs the slightest bit more tartness which could potentially develop with time. I'll certainly revisit this one in the future.

big thanks to Nick for this

pours a hazy straw pale yellow. little to no head, a thin ring of lacing. a hint of brightness.

nose blew me away, smells like a belgian gueuze. lemon, apples, funky, oak. just brilliant.

taste is no way resembles a gueuze though. a very light saison. starts out funky and spicy with a light fruit aspect. starts to fade and thin in flavor through the finish. subtle white wine and oak on the finish.

light with some bite that builds then fades. fairly dry.

quite good but such a bigger bolder nose than the flavor. wish this had a bit more to match the nose. easy drinker, very good.
