4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Note this is the 2013 Batch that was just released, time will change this reviewA - Hazy golden with small yeast floating, Nice 2-3 finger head leaving after 2 mins, bubble lacing remaining on sides of tulip glass.S - Much like the Tank 7 from which it is derived but has more of the earthy tones with the "Brett " yeastT - Grassy, fruity, lemon pineapple, earthy slight bitterness that lingers with the funk that lingers on the back of the throat.M - Nice carbonation, light and musty lingering onO - Super beer to sip and enjoy all the flavors that come through and one of the very best of the Farmhouse styles of beer you will every taste ( at least from what I have tasted and read on the style) Highly recommended if you are a fan of this style and a benchmark of American brewed interpretation of the Belgium Farmhouse style

4.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
750 ml bottle from Wegman’s in Downingtown, PA. This is basically Tank 7’s interesting, funky, older sister who attends art school and goes hiking a lot. Aroma is yeasty, earthy and tranquillo lemon. More earthy compared to Tank 7’s floral. Strong carbonation, rather fizzy and pours with and solid 1/4 inch head and attractive lacing. Taste is citrus and earthy with a nice dry, pinch of pepper finish. Complex, yet fun and refreshing.

2013 bottle. Hazy, pale yellow with foamy white head. Dry aroma and taste of oak, grapefruit with heavy brett notes. Slightly grassy barnyard. Dry finish.

Not my thing. Cellared for 2 years, may have been too long. Overly bitter for a farmhouse ale.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml corked bottle pours a slightly hazy golden orange color with a huge white head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is lemon and yeast with some earthy notes. Taste is a lemon tartness with a spicy and earthy hop bitterness and a dry yeasty finish. Light to medium bodied with generous carbonation that pleases the palate. Overall, a solid saison that is quite tasty and nicely balanced and recommended.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Foamy white head that quickly left a small ring and light lace. Fuller-bodied than expected for a Saison. Complex mix of earthy citrus flavors. Blood oranges. Passionfruit. Chanterelle mushrooms. Mandarin pips. Fruitifully wonderful! Wow, actually a really nice full blend for a Saison. Touch sour.

Bright yellowish orange pour from draft at Temple Bar. Has the "diaper" aroma I usually get from Brett beers. Very good though. Yeast and fruits. Super refreshing on a hot day

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A very effervescent pour of light gold with a dense tight bubbled white head that is quite persistent. The nose is amazing with the sweet Belgian Brett yeast and subtleties of citrus and spice. A subtle flavor of lemon on a rich, crisp palate finishes with a hint of spice and caramel.

Not my favourite style. Had an aftertaste that limited the enjoyment. Person that shared it definitely liked it but I was not as big a fan. Not a beer that I would revisit; however, for people who like the style worth the experience.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours a cloudy golden yellow with a billowing white head. Cork shot out of the bottle during the opening and hit the ceiling. Aroma has a nice funkiness to it along with some herbal saison notes. Lively carbonation that just dances on the tongue. Flavor is excellent with an abundance of barnyard funk and horse blanket followed by a pleasant amount of hoppy bitterness in the finish. Very nice beer!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at JL Beers on July 4th -- Good looking Saison, golden with lots of pillowy foam. Aroma is sweet and bretty. That’s a good bretty-saison. Really best way to describe it is a Saison who’s sweetness was dried out by brett. yum.
