This one pours a mostly clear light straw yellow color, with a decent foamy head, and lots of lacing.

This smells like grassy funk, lemon rind and juice, white wine, oak, etc.

This is pretty simple, but it's very pleasant and very tasty. It's got a great soft white wine barrel character, a bit of grassy bucolic funk, and a pleasantly acidic finish.

This is very light bodied, soft and pillowy, and very drinkable, with a soft and lower level of carbonation.

This is pretty basic, but that doesn't detract from how well it's brewed.

Thanks to Sheldon for bringing this one to March Madness 2015. Pours golden, better than expected clarity for a saison, pristine virgin like white head 2/5". Aroma hit the yeasty side. Then you get all kinds of different fruit, green apple, citrus, lemon etc. . . and a hint of brett funk.

Taste imparts a little bit of white wine/barrel kind of notes. Bright oak relatively speaking. Nice light body, almost like drinking air when you take away all the flavors that got packed into something so air-y. Definitely combines aspects of a wild ale and a saison, which I would say this one is better for it. Its a little bit acidic, but there isn't much to absorb so much of this intensity going around. Was nice to drink it with an Arthur, they are similar beers, this one seemed to provide more levity. I guess I would recommend drinking this on an even hotter day.

Beautiful clear gold pour with a creamy yeasty head. Nose is grassy hay with a sharp vinous tang and some oak oils. Taste is saison yeast and funk with a good sour pucker with some wood. Very refreshing. Great pour.

Pours a fairly clear yellow with low head and plenty of bubbles.

Smell is very crisp, with apples and orange blending with some light funk and grapefruit.

Taste is just so layered, starting off with apples and oranges, adding some hard lemon candy, tartness and just a perfect bitterness.

Mouthfeel is medium, with lots of prickly bubbles.

Holy hell what a great beer this is. Second beer I've tried from Side Project and both have been world lass. So deep and complex, but still hugely drinkable.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A: Bright orange pour with gold highlights. Head is just a few centimeters high with restrained retention and lacing

S: Aroma is effervescent, earthy, and a tad bit grainy. Compliments of white wine, chardonnay, oak barrels, lemons, green apples/grapes, citrus, cloves, white pepper, fruit, some mixed spices and a proportionate amount of funk

T: More of the same with sensible acidity and complexity: Palate undertakes straw, hay, grass, floral and herbal elements with a lingering spice. Lays out for more pears, peaches, apricots, and pineapple with soft, smoky undertones

M: Well-crafted feel that’s light, bright, and crisp with a rustic, dry finish

O: A nicely done, aromatic, farmhouse that’s carefully arranged
