this one didn’t quite sit with me .. . pours a melted crayon gold .. . solid foam .. . triangle .. . floral, barnyard, and week old yeast .. . mouth was a bit off too .. . not necessarily bad, just didn’t like it that much .. . . american football would be a lot funnier if the balls were big slippery bars of soap..

Growler shared at Craft Ale. Poured hazy dark straw colored with frothy off-white head. Nose is grainy pale malt, hopcitrus, spicy white peppery notes, some funky yeasty and Saaz hoppy notes. Tastes dry, white peppery spicy, mildlly funky, and amazingly complex and easily drinkable.

A - Pours a hazy golden-orange with a big finger of frothy white head. The head fades down very slowly leaving behind some nice lacing. S - Aroma is a mix of sweet grainy and pilsner malts, lemon zest, Belgian yeast, coriander and other spices, and some farmhouse smells. T - Starts off with a mix of sweet grainy and lightly bready malts with some lemon zest, citrus hops, and a bit of bitterness. Through the middle, the Belgian yeast comes through with some coriander, other spices, and farmhouse flavors. The finish is a mix of sweet bready malts, lemon zest, citrus hops, Belgian yeast, and some coriander and other spices. M - Medium bodied with heavy carbonation. Feels smooth with a dry and estery finish. D - Very drinkable. Great overall balance with good yeast character coming through.

February 11, 2012 - with JoeMcPhee, blankboy, jercraigs & mabel. 750ml bottle. Semi-gusher. Hazy gold, nice and bubbly with a huge frothy head. Smells great - peach sweetness, champagne yeast, spicy and floral - dry. Taste not as fruity, dryer, more prominent grain, not as pungent or spicy. Solid body, solid delicately frothy carbonation, finishes quick, dry and floral - really good, not boozy one little bit.

Older style plain silver cap. 750 ml bottle into a tulip glass. A - Pours a nice golden amber body. Ever so slight haze. Massive white head forms and settles into a thick cap. Swirling just crates another massive head. Tons of sticky lacing. S - This one is way funkier than it is earthy. Really great barnyard Brett funk with lemons, grass, and a light spice in the background. A touch of booze on the end. T - Similar to the nose. Bright lemons and grass with some light spice and malt. The brett funk is cheesy. Its sounds so wrong, but this is the cheesiest beer I have tried but it works so well! Finish is dry and abrupt. Mouth feel is crisp and lively with ample carbonation. O - The best American made sasion I’ve tried so far. Such a great brett presence right now.

This was fantastic. An unintentional success. A brett infection snuck in and really made this rustic, musty, and funky to compliment a nice herbal, spicy saison.

lol at this, this was a brett bomb that worked. Seems over half of the beers I drink from this brewery are infected. They are ahead of cigar city, what an accomplished. Except for here it works well, the bottle was a huge gusher but the brett in the saison gave it a hill farmstead flavor. Lucky bastards.

Bought a 1 PINT 9.4 FL OZ bottle of this from Amity Wines & Spirits in New Haven, CT for $10.99. Poured from the Tan Labeled bottle w/ a Barrel on fire on the front into a 16oz Pint Glass. Has no bottled on or freshness date. Aroma- Tons of floral hops and mixture of fruit starts this one off. Light spices are present in the background? May have some funk as well but tough to pick out many of the characteristics. Appearance- Pours a 2 finger, long lasting head. Has a golden body with hazy background and leaves thick lacing behind. Flavor- Good combo of spiciness and fruit from the get-go. Light pepper attribute coming in during mid-drink and then dry effervescent with some funk again!?!? Wow... Mouthfeel- Medium Bodied, Highly Carbonated, Effervescent, Prickles with flavor, and tons of light tartness/funk is left on the palate. Bring this on! Awesome. Overall Impression- Wow! Really pleased with this Saison. If you get the chance to grab this one, go for it! Very enjoyable and worth the price. Especially enjoyed all the funk happening in here. That makes a Saison the best!

Glouglouburp (5998) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 14, 2012
In short: A countryside field and refreshing fruits in a bottle. Superb classic blonde Saison
How: Bottle 750ml. Consumed when probably 6 months of age or so. Bottle sent to me by speedwayjim, thanks a lot Jim
The look: Cloudy dark-blonde body topped by a medium white head. Also, a bit of a gusher
In long: Nose is a nice bouquet of countryside flowers along with some tropical fruits. Nothing trully rustic or barnyard about the aroma, but the countryside field character was fresh and vibrant. Taste is just as nourishing as it is refreshing. A big fluffy yeasty body, plenty of soft pale malts, fresh refreshing tropical fruits, sun dried straw, dried dead flowers, light tartness, dry grass. This a well hopped Saison but not to the point of denaturizing the beer. One of the best non-Hill-Farmstead American Saisons I’ve had in a while. Sad to think I spent the first 12 years of my life NOT drinking beer.

A nice Saison, but nothing particularly special. Has a sour apple character with a nice brett yeast funk. Nice medium body and effervescent character to the palate. Bought at the Good Beer store in NYC in 2011.
