A wild farmhouse blend, composed of three different years of oak barrel and oak tank matured Petit Desay batches. This presents expressive fruit character from the fermentation, a restrained acidity, and balancing oak and funk character.

750ml into stemmed tulip.

A: Pours a clear golden with a finger of thick white head that slowly faded into a fuzzy collar leaving wispy lace down the glass.
S: Musty, funky, and barnyard earth driven nose with tons of country funk and spice. Very dry and crispy smelling, with a clean kiss of acidity. I get fruity notes of pear and stone fruits mixed in with the barnyard straw and earth.
T: All the funk from the nose plus a touch of mushroom, damp basement, and moldy goat cheese rind mixed in with the straw and earthy spice. There is almost no sweetness, but I do get hints of ripe pear and a kiss of golden apple and stone fruit. Acidity is low and more of a flavor compliment than it is a lactic/lemon bomb. I even get a touch of baking spices.
M: Dry and crisp body, clean and fresh mouthfeel with a kiss of acid. Frothy and ample but soft carbonation.
O: Delicate and complex with a nice depth to the funk that is lacking from many American sours. Musty and earthy with that nice touch of cheese that takes it over the edge. Beautiful.

750 mL bottle. Clear golden body. Smells of oak, earthy yeast, winey aromas, a little sweet malt. Tastes of strong oak, sweet caramel, tart grape and stone fruit. Hefty oak and dry earthy finish. Medium body. An intense blend of sweet and sour. It's good.

Pale bright gold, thin layer of foam and minor spotty lace.
Aroma is minerally, lightly funky, lemon and vanilla.
Tart and seltzery feel, pretty light bodied. Lemon and vague passion fruit.
Crisp and well carbed, scrubs the palate. Overall it's nice though not really that complex for a 3 year blend. Thanks Thomas for sharing!

Certainly more of a Gueuze than a saison.

Pours a nice head, but it quickly dissipates, leaving a clear, bronze liquid.

Initially the aroma is quite fruity, with lots of guava and vague tropical fruit. After this dissipates, there's a bit more horse blanket.

Taste is certainly tart and funky, but it's balanced and not overly acidic. Great depth of flavour for such a light brew. It's not over powering, it's just a really pleasant drinker.

A nice body that's not overly attenuated and dry. Really good for its weight.
