COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The latest addition to our lineup. Our Farmhouse Ale is named after a good olí Nebraska farm boy. His work ethic is our inspiration behind this saision with the yeast doing hard work to produce the flavors you would expect. The namesake of this beer worked hard on his family farm and one of his chores was dealing with the pigs. Those wicked little pigs never seemed to make friends and brought about the name of this beer. With 6.4% ABV this beer will sneak up on you if you are not careful, just like those pigs on the farm.

Iíve seen some odd interpretations of the Saison but this one is particularly... interesting. Rather than having funky/earthy/fruity aromas, Wicked Snout smells like... Not much anything, really. The taste is underwhelming also. Little yeast and the malt hints most clearly at wheat. If drinking this blind, youíd assume itís a wheat ale - a thin, weak wheat ale. In short, this ale isnít very exciting.

Kind of a tinny, dusty flavor. Sour dough, sour fruit. Strange Saison. Very funky. Not my cup of tea. Odd sticker-like label on can, too.

The color of this beer is cloudy golden with a large white head (with fairly good retention), and the aroma is like a typical saison with the mixture of sour fruit and dough yeast (but this still smells really nice). The taste is mildly sweet and mildly sour, and the palate combines a medium body, soft carbonation, thin texture, and an abrupt finish.

Tulip. Pours a light copper, no head, almost no lacing. Mild odor of spices. A decent tasting beer. The spices are mild and just a hint of alcohol. The finish is pleasant, not too watery.

Parkville Fest 2013. Poured out of the can. This was a mess, everything that can be wrong with Belgian brewing. First of all, I thought I was going to get a stout but the label actually read snout. Silly name. The beer is nasty esters run amok, not much more to it. Too sweet as well.

Had I not read the canís label, I wouldíve been hard put to name the style as a saison. Has some citrus, but lacks the funky barnyard flavor and pungent aroma you get from the best saisons. A bit weak on every level, but I suspect that is an attempt to make this style sessionable.

This saison while certainly not the most pungent I have had was really the definition of a good drinkable product. Some nice fruity notes round out a fairly mild tartness with a palate and appearance that are really nothing to speak of. While this may not seem to justify the relatively high score above I feel it should be noted that this is a lovely product for casual drinking and really doesnít grow old flavor wise. A love beer for just relaxing, or having a casual day out. Well done!
