3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at the barrel cellar - cloudy gold - frothy head - nose has a nice mix of mild spice (nutmeg, all spice), earthy squash (pumpkin, butternut) and earthy yeast funk - all are mild but well-integrated - soft carbonation - full mouthfeel - flavor is much like the aroma - very nice integration of spices, earthy squash, and mild funkiness - I really enjoyed this - when Chad nails it, he really nails it - too bad beers like this are few and far between.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle with the Medici- pours hazy light bet with thick cream head that sticks around. Nice lacing. Nose of funky barnyard, some cherry, maybe a little yogurt and vinous oak white wine notes. Nice carbonation with oak, vinous white wine grape and champagne characteristics along with some lactic acid, funky barnyard and tartness on the finish. Nice and dry, thirst quenching and damn good

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Slightly hazy golden copper with a large foamy and sticky white head. Lovely nose of crushed dead leaves and spicy funky saison with some barreled fruity sourness. Lovely bright flavor with Belgian blonde grains and hay behind some funky sour tones and bright herbal notes and a slight dusty and peppery finish. Really great.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours slightly hazy apricot with a fairly thick and rather persistent ivory head. Malty aroma has strong fruity and spicy overtones - cinnamon, dusty herbs, pear, apple, a hint of oak. Fruity flavor is mainly cinnamon and slightly sour apple plus herbs, cloves, oak, and whispers of licorice and butterscotch. Texture is firm and smooth, and somewhat fizzy. Well, it’s autumn south of the equator - enjoy it in any season.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle thanks to LeninCat. Nose is a minty, fresh cut grass, herbal explosion. Very pleasant and inviting. Slight ginger and coriander, licorice. Perfume. Lightly hammy. Hazy orange with small white head. Taste is lightly tart to puckering. Spices come through in the mid palate. Taste is slightly disappointing compared to the nose. I don’t think the sour works well in the flavor with the spices. Overall this is a nice beer.
