2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tap at Ashley’s in Ann Arbor.
After a pleasant encounter with their Zaison, this was a terrible letdown. Very light hazy pour. Limited aroma, watery, with the dominant flavor of sewer water. I guess that’s funky in some way, but one of the few cases of a farmhouse beer where the funk and latrine is a turnoff. I didn’t bother to finish this one.

From sampler at brewery. Pale yellow cowl. Came to me with a thin ring of head. Aroma is of apples slightly spicy and dusty. Some graininess in taste from wheat. Mouthfeel is prickly with a little sour like quality. Overall refreshing with some character.

Pours a cloudy straw yellow with thick white head, decent lacing. Aroma of yeast, bread, citrus, slight tartness. Flavor matches pretty well and makes for a refreshing enjoyable brew. Not bad.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy pale yellow. Very foamy head rises quickly, and then subsides into little more than light lacing, accompanied by a static/popping sound from all that action. Aroma of grain and a little yeast. Flavor is mild, some yeast, slightly spicy. Light, crisp, refreshing...but at the expense of flavor. Toss in some lactic acid and it might be a winner.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear straw color with a medium thick and foamy white head that diminishes slowly. Rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of malt, yeast and herbs. Light body with flavors of wheat, mild funk, yeast and a touch of fruit. The finish is sweet up front with a grain and yeast aftertaste. Decent overall.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very clear, bright yellow, a little head that lingers. Pale malt and slightly fruity aroma. Very carbonated, foams up in my mouth a bit. But flavor is good. Crisp like a lager but with some fruity sweet notes. It got much better once I swirled in my glass to get rid of some carbonation. A pretty good farmhouse ale.

Can. Light yellow with monster white head and carbonation. No aroma. Cloudy. It's better than water alright but not by much. Decent lacing. I pity the old french.
