Lemon yellow liquid with a slight haze. White head forms a nice corona around the glass. Bright, lemon and clove aroma. Touch of funk on the nose. Flavor is fresh and citrusy with lots of lemon. Earthy. Grass. Floral. Sage and cloves. Delicate spice. Finishes with a somewhat aggressive funk. It's a nice flavor, just a little strong for my taste. Light, effervescent body. Mild grain texture on the tongue. A very complex and interesting saison. Well done.

Blend #2, bottle purchased at The Side Project Cellar on 2/24/18.

Pours a nice sunny orange with a bit of haze, and a big bubbly yeasty head that crawls all the way to the top of the tulip glass before popping out to a halo and some collected bubbles atop the beer. Smell is subtle oak, cidery vinegar notes, some tart white grape and apple essence, a hint of straw. Taste is tart muscat, Granny Smith apple bite with some lingering light oak, that rounds out to a nice cedary, oaky palate coat, that gets really fruity- yellow plum and ranier cherry. Sourness is very balanced. Feel is micro-bubble fizzy and refreshing. Overall a very tasty and complex beer. Lots going on. I’ve not have the regular Fermier, but would love to do a side-by-side to see what the foeder treatment does to the original. Exceptional beer.

Blend 2

Appearance: Pours cloudy and apricot nectar colored with a two finger head that grows rocky; a few shards of lace

Smell: Funky lemon/lime tones with the oak underpinning

Taste: Acetic lemon/lime flavors dominate the opening, with the leathery funk building, through the middle; increasingly bitter and sour, with an oaky finish; just a hint of apricot, almond and vanilla in the aftertaste

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate to high carbonation; rather puckery

Overall: A lot of subtle flavors in this beer though I think there is a lack of unity in the finished product; the bitterness, the tartness and the lemon/lime flavors seem to clash rather than complement
