Batch 4, poured into a tulip. Crisp and tart with a really nice soft mouthfeel and a bit of funkiness - I could drink this everyday. Looking forward to seeing how this one develops!

Batch 4

Very tasty beer, but I would be hard pressed to identify this as a saison. Tons of oak and white wine as it is young, but much less dry and more tart than a typical saison. The only hints of saison are a few possible notes of saison yeast on the finish.

Batch four, pour at FOFA.

Straw yellow, hint of cloudiness, whisp of a just off white head.

Citrus and earthy funk in the aroma, a hint of tartness in the form of green apple and sweet tart candy. Wine grapes and earthy wood.

Soft and rich feeling on the tongue.

An excellent brew, complex and refined flavors.
