AdamJackson (2609) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 11, 2014
Received in a trade. Stored upright for about 6 weeks. Split the 750 5-ways which was a mistake

A - Really nice golden clarity, fluffy head that faded semi-quick to a light thin ring.

S - t. Lots of spice and peppercorn and Indian food spice with mushrooms Brett. Very interesting.

T - Loads of rose petal floral tastes. Spicy up front, honey and lime finish. Oily and coats the tongue with a fleeting lime only remainder when it’s gone. I get a little bit of apple and persimmon.

M - Nice dry mouthfeel at the finish but not as crisp as I was hoping. A bit too oily

O - This is still a fantastic saison! Really clean, lovely enjoyable. Classified here as a wild ale which is fine but has a lot of saison character.

Bottle thanks to Chow. Pours a cloudy orange with small off white head that lasts. The aroma is strong yeast, brett, oak, funk. Medium mouthfeel with light dry wheat, oak, lingering dry finish. Good.

hopscotch (9162) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Bottle... Muckfest 2014... Cloudy peach-colored pour with a tiny, brief, white head. I’m diggin’ on the shit-ton of fruity peach and nectarine with a hint of mango that the nose supplies. Medium-bodied with Key West carbonation. The flavor is lightly tart and biscuity flanked by a hint of farmhouse yeast spiciness.

phaleslu (6509) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 17, 2014
750 ml bottle shared by Puddintane - thanks again, Pudd! Pours a hazy dull gold with a white head. Notes of mint, sage, lemon citrus, farmhouse funk, grapes, oak. Really herbal and barnyardy, but also has a good amount of tartness. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a funky mouthfeel. I enjoyed this quite a bit.

> Great Ransom gin barrel nose, weak and dirty body

[ Bottle ][ 750ml ][ Trade ][ Trade ][ Tired Hands Stemware ][ 7.12.14 ]
>> Pours murky deep orange, gold edges. Weak foam. Nose is big gin barrel, big juniper, yellow rose, flowers. Reminds me of some Upright gin BA saisons. Taste is tart up front, grapefruit, lemon. Finish is a tad papery with mild butyric heat. Mouthfeel is watery, weak.

>!< butyric, watery, paper, murky
