2020 vintage. Mostly clear yellow pour with a fat finger of eggshell white foam, spotted lacing. I went in skeptical here, but actually I must admit this is top shelf! Smell capture a myriad of oak nuances catching fruit: peach, orange, lime, white grape, and green apple as the most defined, add a hint of dandelion and must to round out. Taste takes it a step further: honestly SP's best non-fruit wild saison, if not their best saison period. Add passion fruit, pear, and a whisper of grapefruit to the fruit from the nose, oak is now toasty and bright, vinous kiss adds layers in a gentle way, floral tones are more generic compared to nose though, must and funk elevate. Feel is bright, sour, sneaky funky, oak backing is refined, and dries out well through the sip with controlled acidity dotting the palate, very dialed in.

An enjoyable saison. 2020 Vintage, enjoyed in a tulip at a Creve Coeur, MO Courtyard. Dry oak, white wine, appropriate level of funk, but refreshing with citrus notes and the right level of sour. I've heard that this vintage wasn't as good, so definitely didn't live up to the hype, but I still found it fairly enjoyable.
