I stopped tasting beer prior to bottling. Warm, flat beer tastes bad.
I'm going to have to disagree here. I always taste throughout the process.

I also have a Nelson Sauvin that I've been drinking the hydrometer samples from at 90* and flat. It's damn good and I can't wait to drink it cold and carbonated.

Mmmmmmm........Nelson..... 8)

+eleventy to Nelson! I'm drinking this beer now and man is it good! I love that white wine character with the Dupont strain. Really good combo if anyone was wondering.  8)

Glad to hear the reports of Nelson + Saison working out so well. I'm planning on brewing a 3711 + Nelson + white wine must saison later this summer.

That was my plan with my latest super saison, although I ended up not adding the white wine must. I used a mix of BA-11 (white wine yeast) and Belle Saison to give it a vinous character.
