Surprising sourness made it interesting and drinkable. Not really the style, nor giving BFM its run for the money.

Sample at Daily Growler Powell. Cloudy amber-orange color with a medium off-white head that diminishes steadily to a film. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of fruit, hops and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of mildly tart fruit, caramel malt and mild grassy hops. The finish is mildly hoppy up front with a fruity yeast aftertaste. Decent overall.

Really cloudy medium orange with thin white head. Sweet tart aroma, pert pear, but of raspberry and apple. Lighter carbonation, acidic thin mouthfeel, clean effervescent finish. Flavors are very funky, barnyard, tart Apple, butterscotch, bit of milk. Simple, pert but good and refreshing.

unclemike (2812) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - DEC 12, 2015
Pours hazy orange with a small off-white head and a fruity, spicy, yeasty aroma. The flavor is sweet with spicy yeast and fruit notes suggestive of light grapes and berries. It’s bubbly and light to medium bodied, a good though not great brew.

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 13, 2015
Pours a dark golden amber/copper color with a half finger white head that quickly settles into a very thin ring. Minimal spotty lacing left behind. Slightly earthy aroma with peppery spice, grassy hops, faint farmhouse funk and sweet malt. Some pepper and resinous hops along with a very subtle barnyard farmhouse character. This is followed by sweet malt flavors of red fruits, caramel and toffee. The nose is blander than expected and feels more like a biere de garde than a dark saison/farmhouse. On the fuller end of medium bodied with peppery spice and an earthy presence that lingers over the floral notes, hop bitterness, light fruit and malt backbone into a slightly dry finish. Subtle musty/funky farmhouse character along with pepper and clove. Light malt notes of bread and biscuit followed by sweeter dark fruit notes, notably red apple and dark berries. Complex, full bodied, well balanced and easy to drink.
