How we review

What the brewers say

“Our Saison du Fermier aged with blueberries in French Oak wine barrels. Wild yeast native to our family’s Missouri farm creates the brightness, depth, and rustic character. Fermented and aged in wine barrels for more than a year before being naturally bottle conditioned.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Lactic tartness and fleshy blueberry sweetness. There’s a lemon citrus or lemongrass herbal thing as well. Some Brett funk and subtle floral notes.”

Flavor: “As in the aroma, there’s lots of intense dark fruit, blueberry, and cherry along with lemon and lemongrass. The lactic and blueberry sweetness are very rich and well blended. Tannins (probably from the fruit) help round things out and make you want another sip. Finishes dry.”

Overall: “An interesting mix of dark intense fruit and light lemony acidity, which is strong but not over the top. Very drinkable! Well-balanced with nice berry flavors, sour, and tannic qualities.”
