“Ourison represents the progression and evolution of our Saison fermentation program. Ourison is Our Saison, SaisonHands, left to condition in oak and then allowed to fully express itself via a lengthy bottle conditioning period. The end result is a highly refined snappy and pungent Saison that, I feel, is one of the most simplistic and exciting iterations of Saison that we have ever produced.”

Poured from a 750mL bottle into a Tired Hands stemmed taster glass. Thanks Bsquirrelbrewer for throwing this in as an extra!!!
Pours a hazy bright yellow body with a pretty big white head that reduces pretty quickly leaving spotty lacing and a ring of retention.
Aromas are interesting. Quite honestly, when I first cracked this I thought it was skunked because I got a slight skunky aroma. Once it sits for a minute that completely goes away and leaves an excellent saison citrusy tartness, oaky aroma.
On the tongue is a delightfully balanced medly of tart citrus, grassy saison yeast, light pepper, finishes dry with a light oak and slight hoppy bite. Mouthfeel is amazing, crisp, refreshing, perfectly carbonated.
Overall a world class Saison, this is very well done.
