3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On draught at the brewpub. Pours darker than expected, more amber. Nose and taste show an odd mix of spices, yeast notes, and too much malt. Not so good.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A: Reddish/Orangish hue, Off White Head, some Lacing
S: Orange, Lemon Zest, mild Funky Yeast
T: Malts, Funky Yeast
M: Decent Carbonation, Light to Medium Bodied, Funky Off Taste
Overall, a farmhouse ale with some very off flavors that doesnt really blend well together. A nice attempt but not a very good one.

Not my favorite saison or BBC by any means. A little darker than most saison and not as tasty but it will do in a pinch.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle, from Party Source. On close-out for $1.45. Didn’t realize it was bottled May 2012 when I bought it. Half hazy orange color. Some dark sediment pieces in the body. Big white head, that soon fades to a reasonable amount. Leaves some loose lace. Stronger, smooth carbonation. Medium body. More dry texture. Some orange rind, light pepper in the flavor. Little dusty. Some light spiciness. Light bitter, little sweet. As it is, just an OK saison. Not too bad to wash a sandwich down with.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Hazy yellow with white head. Smells of grapefruit and spice and it has the feel of champagne. Tastes of bitter hops and citrus. Not my favorite beer.
