22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 7/28/2017. Pours slightly hazy medium golden yellow color with a 1-2 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big lightly tart lemon, lime, orange, peach, pear, melon, pineapple, red/green apple, white grape, white wine, berries, hay, straw, grass, oak, pepper, rye, and white bread; with lighter notes of oaken vanilla, banana, clove, leathery/musty funk, white wine vinegar, and yeast/oak earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/funky/spicy/light acidic yeast, pale/rye malt, and moderate oak barrel notes; with great strength. Taste of big lightly tart lemon, lime, orange, peach, pear, melon, pineapple, red/green apple, white grape, white wine, berries, hay, straw, grass, oak, pepper, rye, and white bread; with lighter notes of oaken vanilla, banana, clove, leathery/musty funk, white wine vinegar, and yeast/oak earthiness. Light-moderate yeast/oak/rye spiciness and light lactic tartness on the finish. Lingering notes of tart lemon, lime, orange, peach, pear, melon, pineapple, red/green apple, white grape, white wine, berries, hay, straw, grass, oak, pepper, rye, white bread, vanilla, light funk/vinegar, and yeast/oak earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/funky/spicy/light acidic yeast, pale/rye malt, and moderate oak barrel flavors; with an awesome malt/tart/spiciness balance, and zero puckering/astringent flavors after the finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from tart/spiciness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/grainy, and fairly acidic/tannic balanced mouthfeel that is fantastic. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 6%. Overall this is an amazing wild saison! All around incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/funky/spicy/light acidic yeast, pale/rye malt, and moderate oak barrel flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with the mellowly lactic/spicy/tannic/drying finish. Absolutely wonderful well rounded Brett/Lacto/Hefe/Saison yeast complexity; nice pale/rye malt backbone, and great oak presence. A highly enjoyable offering, and amazing style example.
