Notes: A Rare Beer Club exclusive, this barrel-aged, dry-hopped saison is aged for 10-ish months in neutral white oak barrels that had previously held the brewery's grisette, and has a bit of the brewery's foudre-aged sour blonde blended in (around 20% of the total). It's dry-hopped with Citra, Mosaic and Amarillo, and even employs some tangerine peel.

Poured from 750 mL bottle into cervoise.
A: Pours a slightly hazy bright lemon hue with 1 inch bubbly white head with decent retention.
S: Definite citrus notes with clear tangerine at the front. Some lemon and orange with a hint of lime. White pepper in the background.
T: Loads of tangerine with sour blond ale. Subtle tart lemon, lime, and orange.
M: Light body. Citrusy crispness. Sour and refreshing. Lingers nicely on the palate. Some rind astringency.
D: Wish the tangerine note wasn’t so overpowering. Overall a very nice brew though. Refreshing saison.

750 ml bottle from Rare Beer Club. Pours hazy orange with tall, long lasting, fluffy white head and lively carbonation. Aroma is of funky yeast, sourdough, wheat malt, lemon zest and spices. Body is medium and tangy. Herbal hops, funky yeast, wheat malt, lemon, spices and some woody notes fill the mouth. Finish is long and sour. Nice refreshing brew.
