3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml brown bottle. Yellow pour, hazy with a few dark flecks. Huge white head, very foamy, creamy and still. Lots of messy lacing. Nose has a faint funk, some bread and grain, a little sweetness, light spice and hay and citrus. Taste has a bit of a sweet start, some orange peel, hay, grains and grass. Finishes with lingering yeast and grassy bitterness and just an undercurrent of funk from the yeast. Pretty effervescent. Solid saison.

Sampled at TWCP Beer Fest 2013. It poured a golden color with a white head. The aroma was of peach, grapefruit, pineapple and some malts. The taste was sweet and fruity with some grapefruit and kiwi. It had a medium body and average carbonation. Very good.

Whole Foods, Bowery 12oz ($4): Pours golden with small white head. Aroma is sugar, yeast, farmhouse funk, and a substantial fruitiness. Taste is funky, with a small bit of bitterness. Has a rather bready finish. Some slightly hoppy aftertaste. Very easy to drink, but with plenty of off-beat complexity. I like it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle from newly released 4pks. Pours a rich golden color with two finger of sticky white foam. On the nose its got some fruit esters of pear, stale hay, yeasty spice and a touch of grass. The palate follows the nose nicely with great mouthfeel and a proper level of carbonation. Lots of esters and balanced spice that dries out in the finish.
