750mL bottle poured into an oversized snifter.

The beer's got a big frothy head and persists forever. The body is copper-colored and cloudy. Lace is aplenty. 4.25

Lot of wine on the nose. Floral, yeasty and grape qualities. Light maltiness is the only suggestion on the aroma that this is beer. 4

Very much in taste as is the aroma: grapey, wine-like, bubblegum, floral and touches of yeasty, peppery spice. There are touches of plum and other fruit too. Very nice. 4.25

The body is light and feels of light yeast presence, sweetness and a vinous quality. Some hints of solvent feel suggest this beer may have been hot fresh, so I'm glad to drink it with some age on it. 4

This beer is nice. The base beer is tasty and the wine qualities are great.

A pretty golden amber. A thin,clean white head. Scant lacing. Nose is exciting with notes of honey, mango and pineapple as well as traditional light fruits like apples, pears and grapes. Taste delivers on the promise of the nose. A well presented hybrid. A Belgian tropical IPA fusion. Saison like malt core with a honeyed, caramel malt body. Hops offer up tons of tropical fruits that broaden the sweetness and malt flavors. Then those same characters dry and bitter the beer expertly. Nice crisp Belgian funk. A tropical/citrus IPA personality that is clean and short in the finish. Crisp feel with a smooth, effervescent swallow. Solid beer overall with a standout personality.

A: The beer is rather hazy pale yellow in color and has a moderate to high amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high bright white head that died down, leaving a thick collar around the edge of the glass and a thin head covering the remainder of the surface.
S: Light aromas of Chardonnay wine barrels and oak are present in the nose; the oak becomes a little stronger as the beer warms up.
T: The taste initially starts out with lots of flavors of oak and associated vanilla—once the beer warms some spicy hints of rye also become noticeable.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. The oats seem to lend a bit of smoothness to the mouthfeel and coat your mouth a little bit.
O: If you like oak aged beers, especially those that impart flavors of vanilla, this is a really nice choice for the summer months as the underlying saison base keeps things lighter in body.
