EXTREMELY foamy. Last a long time too. I hate foam. This stuff continues to bubble like champagne. I hate champagne. Very bitter barnyard taste. Reminds me of some mooonshine dandelion wine we once made. Dandelions are bitter weeds. I hate dandelions. Smells like a portapotty. I hate portapotties.

This was a pretty strong IPA. The hop flavors were high and the spice was a little bit much coming from the saison yeast. I guess it was to be expected but much more of a belgian IPA in all around taste.

3oz cask pour is a lightly hazy orange with one ring of white head. Nose is fruity, pears, lemons, honey, perfume. Mouth feel is perfect, a little oily, a little astringent. Herbal flavors, grass, flower petals, white grapes. Medium bodied, oily finish.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 20, 2012
Draught at TJ’s: Aroma of hops, Saison yeast, slight Brett, peach, slight tropical fruit, and a hint of malt. Poured amber in color with a large, creamy, dense, off-white head that lasted throughout. Hazy. Very slightly sparkling. Excellent lacing. Flavor is lightly sweet and medium bitter. Tastes of Saison yeast, hops, light Brett, and some fruit. Medium body. Oily, then dry texture. Average carbonation. Hop, Saison yeast, light Brett, light fruit, finish is medium sweet, lightly bitter, and dry.

Bottle. Yellow, a little cloudy, tall foamy head. Floral hop and spice aroma. Strong bitterness, with a mild finish.

Draught pours cloudy light orange with a thick white head. Aromas are spicy, citrus and funk. Tastes are similar with hoppy bitterness coming up front and then the Saison spiciness coming though on the finish. Very similar to Raging Bitch, but unique at the same time. A nice effort.

12 oz bottle - clean orange-straw-yellow hazy pour, medium lasting tan-white head. Pepper citrus nose following through on the medium bodied palate. Pepper and bittering hoppy finish. Definitely yeasty farmhouse notes. Good, but nothing I’d "crave" again.

dbarnold (1126) - Bethesda, Maryland, USA - FEB 9, 2012
Sort of a blend between a saison and an IPA, left it as being a mild IPA with some grassiness to it. I liked it, but left me a little confused. I’m all for hybrids, but they have to have some special taste to them to be notable.

Location/Date:Bottle with Dave, Travis and Ben M-L on February 3rd, 2012.

Appearance:Smells a copper cloud.
Aroma:Smells really like a saison, herby, grassy.
Taste:Light amount of bitterness, some sweetness and spice.
Palate:Medium body.

Summary: An interesting take on an IPA, just not my preference for the style

lamas (1360) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 1, 2012
Bottle. A clear copper pour with a smallish off-white head. A wonderfully yeasty/funky aroma that features plenty of bubblegum, bananas, cloves, lemons, peaches, citrus rinds, candi sugar, coriander, pepper, and some grassiness. Floral. Relatively medium-bodied and kinda creamy on the way down. Some caramel maltiness upfront in the taste along with some peach peels, bubblegum, and hints of ripe bananas. A slightly drying grassy finish with some pineapple, light grapefruit, and plenty of citrus rinds. Nicely spiced throughout.
