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.
