The best beer of 2018 so far. Bottle from Mikkeller NYC. Nose is pure farmhouse w/ some acidity, apple, pear, and wet leather. The taste is perfect. There is subtle tart w/ funk and earth from the yeast and grains. The blend is perfect. The feel is amazing, a little heavier then the typical tart saison but goes w/ this offering perfectly. Well worth actively seeking out if you are a fan of saison or sour beer.

Shimmering, lightly sparkling gold-amber with a moderate white fizzy foam that settles to a creamy ring and thin central film.

Complex and mature aromas of vinous oaks and grapes are accented by peppery herbs, straw and honeysuckle.

Tangy and lightly sour, flavors of green apple come along with an excellently balanced note of bright wine oak that adds an infinite complexity of grapes, orange rind and a hint of olive brine, becoming more acidic as it warms.

The round, medium body comes in with a light, tingly fizz and finishes just barely semi-dry.

This reminds me a lot of Jester King's Biere de Coupage, and although SdF came first, I did enjoy BdC a bit more.

b1. Slight gusher, but it just flooded the immediate area with floral and citrus aromas. A closer whiff reveals the typical SP rustic characteristics, though this seems to be much fruitier than some of their other offerings (at least the few I've had). It's almost like sticking your head inside of a used wine barrel.
Not sour but tarter in taste than the nose lends one to believe, but fits well with the fruitiness; reminiscent of a Gewürztraminer.

Harmony of old and new. Fermented and aged in wine barrels for several months on the family farm.
