Serving: Draft at Fireworks in Leesburg. It pours a hazy gold color with a rocky white head. The nose is full of spicy hops, yeast, and grass. The flavor seems to lean more towards the grassy side with notes of hay, yeast, and spicy hops. Lengthy bitter finish. A nice take on a saison.

20120303 12oz bottle from Wine World. An acceptable hoppy saison, and I was hoping it would be that based on the name. Not much funk, but a bit of that herbal Dupont note that’s kind of woody with watercress and some root veg. Citra is a savior for many beers.Just knock it down a bit in ABV and let the yeast work more and this one could be a regular quaff.

Very unique beer. I love the hint of barnyard and the assertiveness of the hops. I think this beer could make it into my regular rotation.

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.

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.

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.
