[ Tap ][ Forest & Main ][ 4oz ][ Mini Imperial Pint ][ $2 ][ 2/16/14 ]
>> Pours a clear orange with medium white head. Nose is sweet orange, pear, more on the sweet/estery side. Taste is sweeter, tannic apple, mild cinnamon spice, fairly sticky, similar to Solaire....this isn’t really a good saison at all...but for some reason when these are barrel aged and funkified they are insane. Maybe that is what the base beer needs to be in order to barrel age well.

UPDATED: DEC 14, 2012 Re-review. Hazy, light golden-orange body, moderate sized white head, good lacing. Nose and flavor are lightly grainy, with some pale malts, lemon, grassy hops, light spiciness, and a little yeast zest. Medium to light bodied, dry finish with some moderate bitterness. Pleasant and invigorating .
