Side Project Saison Du Ble

Poured into a wine glass from a 750ml bottle.

Pours a nice golden straw color with a nice bright slight orange hue with a slight haze. There is a nice quarter inch white head that is pretty dense and recedes quickly down to a thin film.

Aroma is pretty nice. Notes of mild lemon tartness in the nose with some nice white grape vinous character as well. Notes of woody musty oak are present in the nose as well as some grainy and mildly sweet wheat notes. Fresh citrusy tartness and some slightly buttery vinous and funky wood notes.

Flavor is pretty awesome. Grainy and bready notes that are earthy and sweet start things off with a back note of mild lemony tartness. Tartness is milder than De Fermier and there is a pretty noticeable woody must to the brew along with some barnyard and husk notes. Great notes of mild vinegar are also present. Overall nice and dry as a saison should be. Sooo good.

Late sunset in the glass. Sharp and vinous nose. Tangerine, oak, Chardonnay and a bit of hay funkiness. The barrel character on this is one of the best I've had in a beer. Crisp, tart and completely refreshing.

On tap at CBC 2016 - day 2. Fruity and flowery aromas, lemons, cucumbers, white wine and very feint brett notes.

Batch 6 was a little bit of a gusher when opened.

Batch 7 was the best yet. Not going to change my rating, as I don't think that is fair, but much better than older versions.

Gold to straw colored with minimal light penetration. No head is present. The aroma is earthy,peppery yeast. Oak reappears at the back of the palate. The languages as it warms. The mouth is bone dry.
