3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Wax sealed bomber served in a tulip. Hazy burnt orange in color with a huge off-white head. Good retention, minimal lace. Saison aromatics. Bright coriander, spice, orange peel, lime and white pepper. Light sweet flavor of tart lime. Light-medium bubbly body, thin creamy texture, and a acidic and dry finish. Quite nice.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Esters and belgian funk with a barnyard woodiness. A transparent copper with diminishing head. A mild fruitiness that quickly evolves into a dry finish. A decent amount of carbonation aids the crispness. A spicy farmhouse ale with slight tartness supplied by the oragnes. Great twist to the style that works.

Zwicklemania 2011 – Alameda Brewing
Golden orange in color, hazy with a thin off white head. Added Orange peel and blood orange juice added to the farm house ale. Tasty sweet and very dry in the finish. Nice malt build and added fruit flavors. Very good beer. Nice additions to the Saison style.
