COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"The season of Carter" - brewed to commemorate the birth of our son Carter, this Belgian Farmhouse Ale is made to quench the late summer thirst and restore the work ethic, because in Belgium, the harvest is never really over.

Thanks to Bob for bringing this one, too! 2007 bottle #54. Poured hazy medium golden with a short cap of white head. The aroma was lightly skunky at first, but really nice when it had the chance to breathe.. lemon zest and funky, spicy yeast came through along with dried floral notes and white pepper.. complex and spice-centric, with the initial off notes dying off completely. The flavor found tart lemon and black pepper spicage on the tip of the tongue, and the spices were even more intense at the back and through the finish (almost to a fault).. pale and bready pils-type sweetness at the core.. very good, but a touch too spicy for my liking. Medium-bodied and spicy on the palate with a nice flow to it. Very glad I got to try this!

Ernest (6231) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 5, 2007
Multiple samples, GABF 2007. Head is mostly diminishing. Body is hazy medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (herbs), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with notes of coriander, grains of paradise?, and pepper. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Not bad, if maybe a little overspiced. Decent balance.

BBB63 (6051) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - DEC 17, 2007
Cheesehead YeAH 2007, thanks Bob (Skyview): Golden hue with a fizzy head which left good lace upon the glass. The aroma has notes of acidic pear and apple, funky cobweb yeast, white pepper and coriander, grassy hops, roasted malt and a hint of sea salt. The taste has a nice spiced and fruit character along with dry grains and toast. Herbal and even more spice upon the finish. The best part of this beer is the tight carbonation which is sprite and very refreshing, cuts through the spice. A wonderful overall brew and a nice surprise indeed.

[2007] Poured a hazy golden color with a medium sized, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of hay, citrus fruits, coriander, ginger, toffee, and yeast. Taste of wheat malts, more ginger, and other spices (coriander), toasted dough, honey / toffee, some pepper, and a dry finish.

Skyview (5215) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - DEC 17, 2007
Picked up 22-oz bomber at the Carter’s Brewing Company in Billings, Montana. Shared at Cheesehead YeHA. Pours a hazy blonde brew with a decent thick white head that has some good retention and lacing. First time I’ve seen lacing inside the bottle as well. Aroma of large yeast complex, coriander, light toasted bready malt, a touch of pepper and some orange zest. Taste is medium bodied, some upper carbonation with flavors of yeast, bready malt and enough coriander. Finish is soft, a touch of spiced yeast and a coriander aftertaste. A very good balanced saison.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 10, 2010
Tap at GABF 09. Pours a hazy golden with a fluffy white head. Aroma is lemony- soap, lemongrass and citrus zest, peppery phenolics along with cardamon and lavendar-like flowers. Flavor is doughy bready crisp malts, a bit DMS, flowers and spices dominate though and make it a bit messy oily and soapy- flavor and finish are a bit sweet.

Thanks to Skyview for this one. Cloudy gold color. Impressive, but unnecessary packaging that I’m sure raised the price. Coriander and wheat in the aroma. Flavor is a little sour with Belgian yeast, light spice including more coriander, and wheat. I like this.

OSLO and Guerde’s Memorial Weekend Tasting, 5/23/08. 2007 Vintage, bottle 53. Many thanks to Skyview for this rare Montana treat. Cloudy gold color with a bit of a head. Spicy and yeasty aroma. Strongly phenolic taste. Vegetal and grassy hop. Lots of the barnyard funk and dry finish. Quite a delicious brew.
