"Meh. Pretty ho hum. A belgianesque saision yeast was really the only thing seperating this from a boring yellow fizzy beer. Not bad, but so lacking compared to the awesome saisons out today. "

Bottle. Pours slightly hazy copper with a nice head. Nose is mild citrus and some fruit. Taste is also very mild...citrus and some breadiness. Tart on the backend.

Golden color, white head, bottle was well carbonated. Light pilsner taste with prevalent doughiness, notes of spices and banana and a clean, citrus finish.

Brush Tail left me underwhelmed. It’s a sad thing, too. I like this brewery and I love farmhouse ales. I tend to be fairly open-minded when it comes to this category because these beers are so diverse. While Brush Tail offers some flavor of yeast and smoke, there’s just not enough. A farmhouse ale has to have big, mature flavors, and Brush Tail simply doesn’t offer that. Still, for a 12 ounce version, it isn’t awful.

~Pils malt aroma, bready with lemon and peppery spice. Refreshing.
~Pours a hazy light gold color with big foamy lasting white head.
~Bitter lemon peel in flavor with lots of spice and earthy hops. Kinda a strange spice flavor combo in there.
~Medium light bodied with high CO2, frothy mouthfeel, lingering strange spice finish.
~Its a drinkable beer, but the strange spicy flavor is a turn off for me. Luckily got this on sale for $3.99 a six pack!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear pale gold with a rocky white head...like a lager. Smells like bread crust and pilsner malts...like a lager (not giving enough credit here, though bread crust and pilsner doughiness are prevalent here. There’s also a bit of earthy floral tones and a touch of orange zest. And the head actually leaves good lacing and retains well). Flavor is packed with hay and orange rind citrus, a bit of floral hops, and a bit of doughiness. Finishes estery and clean with a touch of pilsner malt and orange sweetness.

Bottle from Sun devil Liquors. Pours yellow with inches of white foam that dissipates quickly. Very effervescent in the tongue. Has a bit of funk in the nose. Some subdued barnyard of the tongue. Solid but not amazing.

12 ounce bottle from Hayduke. A big white head has a cool looking cascading effect. It settles leaving sticky lacing. The aroma is banana and cloves with Belgian yeast. The flavor is more complex. Those are tasted but there are also noble sulfur hops, grass, lemon. This is kind of a hoppy-hefe-saison. A nice beer that defies style. Whatever it is it makes for a nice summer quaff. Enjoyable and interesting.
