Pours pale yellow with thick white head. Smells like salt and citrus. Tastes of coriander, saffron, salt, yeast, bitterness, sour, and a bit of sweetness. Clean finish.

Bottle Batch 8 and served in tumbler: Slightly hazed golden hue with a nice frothy head and good lace. Well this is interesting with light sea salt playing off the house characteristics of malt and yeast found with almost all BFM brews. The juicy fruit and herbal nature of the hops (Cascade, Amarillo and Hallertauer) gives this a touch of Belgian IPA notes. Just not sure how this was all supposed to come together? One thing is for sure, it is NOT an Imperial Gose like someone told me.

Bottle - Batch 8 - Flowery with fruit esters. Hazy gold with a rich but small beige head. Bitter with lots of flowery notes, fruit esters and a nice sweetness. The salt is there but in the background and enhances the bitterness.

From a bottle, consumed January 2014. I didn’t realize this had some age on it when I purchased it. Opaque orange color and a thick head. Citrus and grapefruit aromas, also also flowers. Very earthy flavor, and dry with hops. An excellent fusion between a Belgian ale and a saison.

Bottle shared by John - thanks!! Hazy dark yellow pour with a nice white head. Great fruity nose on this one. Really nice. Sour grapefruit and funky finish, really slight floral hop character and a bright finish.

BVery (6826) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Bottle shared by John - thanks! Awesome aroma - lightly sour and yeast. Lighter and smooth clean palate. Could use a touch more carbonation for me, but this is really good.

Bottle, cloudy orange color with scant white foam, clean floral Belgian hoppy flavors, sweet bright candied finish

Certainly unusual... Didn’t really notice any salt. Tart citrus, caramel, yeast, grassy herbs. Not worth the entry fee.

Keg @ Capital Ale House. The pour’s medium gold with a small head. The nose is rotting peaches, cotton candy. Earthy Belgian yeast. The taste is dirt, pollen. Musty grape. Honey comb. A bit sickly, hot. Full body.

easily one of the grittiest beers i have ever had .. . pours a deep gold, light specks of stuff floating .. . musky, gritty, sandy and yeast .. . too BFM for me, and yes, that makes sense..
