750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Blend 2, 4/3/2015.

Appearance - Hazy light orange body. Medium white head and a medium collar.

Smell - Impressive. Lemon. Oak. Gin barrel is most prominent and I'm sucker for it in saisons.

Taste - Wine comes out a lot more. Lemon flavor is delicious. Oak. Gin barrel lingers into the finish. Mild tartness. More of a saison than a wild ale, I'd say.

Mouthfeel - Medium low carbonation. Medium light body.

Overall - Fantastic. Great combination of flavors.

750 ml bottle. Hazy golden orange body. No head or retention. Looks still. Aromas are bright lemon peel and juice, orange, floral gin. Flavors are a smack of sour lemon up front, followed by the oak and floral gin notes. This beer is an absolute stunner. Incredibly refreshing.
