3/5  rDev -29.4%

Pour is pale golden yellow, light haze, white head that dissipates quickly. Nose has some tart grape skin, light notes of sulfur, grassy hop, pepper and lemon. Taste has a bit less sulfer, a bit thin, light tart grape skin, faint grassy hop, moderate bitterness in the finish. Carb is very low, a bit buttery in the finish.

Thanks to Skuter for sharing this one at Retsinis' tasting.

Pours a hazy light yellow with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is slightly sour with malt, grain, fruit, and wine aromas. Taste is much the same with sour malt, fruit, and wine flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of wood bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a nice wine barrel aged presence all around.

* Not consumed on this date just finally posting my review

A- A bright straw color, minimal cap of head that clears out to a few bubbles very quickly
S-Chardonnay,Pear,white pepper, lactic tartness. All very restrained
T- Pear, minimal earthiness, a bit of spice, oak, lemon tartness
M- Light bodied, almost thin, soft
O- Saison hands is a top 5 beer for me but this bottle of Handfarm was anything but spectacular. Very soft but next to no brett development. I'd love some carbonation on this beer as well. This was so lightly carbed that it was almost still. Could be bottle variance but most of the bottles I've had from them have been the same.
