A huge improvement from the Lineage Wheat.

A fine barrel wild saison with tart qualities up front of white wine, stone fruit, lemons, funk throughout, a good wheaty mid palate and drying finish.

Pours a dull, honey-gold with a mostly translucent clarity. Nose express tart fruity notes and a light peppery quality. Taste is really quite enjoyable - stone fruit, buttery, soft and toasted oak. Mouthfeel is light-medium in body with a lively carbonation and a pleasant astringency. Wow - really quite tasty as it warms. The oak imparts a nice dimension.

Shared with rudzud and Ricky.

Light fizzy head fades fairly quickly, slight hazy golden color.

Nose mild sour funk, tart lemony funk, light saison floral spices, sour funk and little apple skin phenolic note, lacto funk, mild toasted oak.

Taste brings mild wheat, creamy wheat with sour lacto funk, light lemony grassy funk, hint saison spices, little yeasty note, mild bitter grassy floral hops. Sour in general. Finish is little sticky flemmy sour, dry quick finish.

Mouth is med bod, light carb.

Thanks for the bottle Kevin.

A- Mostly clear pale golden body to a wine glass. One finger foamy cap with decent retention. Wide ring at the edges donates spotty lacing.

S- Big woody oak, heavy lactic acid bacteria with some funky barnyard feel, a touch of vinegar and musty pale fruits.

T- The oak barrel wood grows to become woody off the top leading the beers flavor profile. This oak overshadows a base of lemony yogurt lactic acid, a touch of Brett band aid, raspberry, green apple, pale white grapes, citrus zest and vinaigrette acetic acid.

MF- Light and crisp body with an effervescent very high carbonation. Slick and foamy consistency with a medium sour finish.

A good base Wild Ale with a too much oak but a great lactic and acetic sour base.

750 mL bottle. Bright orange. Medium white head. Smell is oak, some yogurt, white wine. Taste is stone fruits with white wine behind it. Grainy malts. Tart and a little lemony in the finish. Lingering oak. Medium body. Well carbonated. Really nice.

Thanks to JLindros for sharing.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice crystal clear golden hue with a thin white head that fades to leave a thin wisp.

S - Aromas of light wine barrels, tannins, oak, light funk. Very lackluster.

T - Taste is similar to the nose, light funk. Decent saison yeasts. The light funk and tartness are decent enough, but, nothing special.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, decent crispness.

O - Overall this beer was really underwhelming. Really doesn't hold a candle to other ba saisons.
