Springhouse is an aged Belgium Saison (Farmhouse Ale). 8% ABV, it pours gold-amber, is well carbonated but has a small to non existent head, and has a sweet fruity aroma with apples, green grapes and apricots the dominant taste. This is an interesting ale that deserves your attention.

Bottle shared by Rob at July 4th hotel. Snifter. Pours an orange color with a thick head and some moderate lacing. Aroma of spices, light fruits, funky Belgian yeasts, and barnyard. The taste was light apricots and pears, Belgian yeasts, a little funk, hay, cereal and spice. Crisp carbonation, light and refreshing. Funky, almost tart finish.

Pours a hazy, dark golden orange with apricot colored edges and a frothy, two finger white head that very slowly settles into a lasting cap/ring. Very good retention for the style with large chunks of soapy lacing left behind. Floral, perfume like aroma with zesty spice, bready yeast, bubblegum and sweet citrus fruit. Not much of a farmhouse/saison yeast character with only subtle musty funk. Smells more like an American wheat beer. Slightly mineraly with some pepper and clove followed by the wheat, yeast and orange peel. Medium bodied with soft carbonation and a zesty spice presence up front that lingers over subtle funk, bread, bubblegum and citrus zest into a slightly dry finish. Again, the saison/farmhouse character is faint with only subtle grassy, musty funk. Feels more like a wheat beer with peppery clove and coriander followed by a strong bready yeast character and prominent bubblegum flavor. Some lemon pith/citrus sweetness towards the finish but thatís pretty tame as well. Not all that interesting or flavorful but at least itís easy to drink. Not a very good interpretation of the style in my opinion.

Bottle... Pours clear and amber with orange highlights and a small, fizzy, white head thatís gone in a flash. The aroma features herbs and spicy phenols. Full-bodied with busy carbonation. The flavor is all about spicy phenols and fruity esters flanked by too much hop bitterness. Why donít we just take this farmhouse yeast strain that everyone (except FantŰme) seems to be using for their saisons and alter the grain bills so they are heavier on wheat and lighter on barley and whala Ė a bunch of Belgian and French farmhouse hefeweizens! Meh.

Bottle: The aroma consists of citrus, light sweet tarts, apple, and faint yeast. It pours a transparent golden-orange with a two finger white head that quickly fades to a minimal film outlined by a thick ring. There is some thin webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with light-moderate citrus and light yeast. The finish has light-moderate orange peel, apple, faint sweet tarts, and spice/pepper. Itís light-medium bodied with moderate-lively carbonation.

Bottle: Clear amber body, really nice clarity with a soapy, fuzzy off-white layer of foam on top with a nice collar along the glass. Aroma is estery with some Belgian yeast notes, faint white wine, tart green apple, & just a light touch of cotton funk. Taste is a bit spicier with some clove, phenols, estery spice, & a moderate medicinal tone. Slight grassiness. Touch of gummy yeast, toasted bread, & a bit of farmhouse in the finish. Small touch of white grape. Semi-wet finish.

Bought at a beer store on a trip up through Virginia. Completely opaque, a bit sour, a bit chalky. Doesn't really inspire me to go back to Virginia. A million small bubbles. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22 oz. bottle, from my secret Santa. Dated 10 April 2014. Cloudy, light yellow pour, with a big, bubbly, off-white head. Big banana aroma, with lemon, pear, riesling, cloves, and white sugar. Very sweet, with a light funk, and just a touch of bitterness. Medium to heavy body, sharp, bubbly, and a little dry. This is an excellent saison. Very complex and layered, with great fruity, yeasty, and (just a little) hoppy aromas. Thereís a lot of residual sugar here. I kinda wish Iíd let this bottle sit a few more months.
