Head dissipates quickly. Strong rye aroma, lots of hops and booze, with enough caramel sweetness to balance them. Strong bitter aftertaste. Pleasant medium body.

Rather hazy golden orange color with a tan head. Has a spicy rye aroma with a hint of sweetness. It is pretty bitter and the rye flavor is very prominent. It has a medium body and is also very carbonated which gives it a nice liveliness. It leaves a bit of a doughy after taste. This beer is just okay.

(bottle) Having been impressed with 2 out of 3 Fulton beers Iíve had (the much improved Worthy Adversary and Patience Barleywine), I decided to take a flyer on a sixer of this. I did not have high expectations for what I believe is Fultonís First Foray into sasionville. Pours a hazed orange color with a thin white cap for a head. Aroma certainly holds an abundant amount of rye, with a prominent baked rye bread note prevailing thatís coupled with some spiced apple and lemon zest. A hint of vaseline. Iím pretty surprised that I kind of like whatís going on here, although it is a tad muddled with a couple off scents thrown into the mix. The flavor is not as pleasant since it contains an indistinct melange of competing flavors that devolve into a jumbled mess. Thereís definitely some rye, maybe black pepper, something vaguely sweet, and something bitter on the finish. Mouthfeel is medium and carbonation is fairly lively. Overall this was fairly pleasant to sniff but distinctly unpleasant to drink.

Very good looking beer, sets up nicely. Smell is rather pleasant, floral, light spices. Tastes like a saison with rye which isnít really my style but I like to try new Fulton stuff.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear gold with an orange hue and a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has lots of grass and a bit of dankness with a rye backbone and a hint of light fruits. Flavor is much more flora with light fruits and a strong rye backbone through the finish.

Draft. Gold in colour with fairly strong carbonation. Quite floral on the nose, backed by notes of candi sugar and under ripe peach. Spicy and dry on the palate with loads of white and black pepper, coriander and cut grass. Almost too sharply spiced. Just ok overall.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pour on tap at the brewery, golden yellow pour with white head, aroma brought biscuit, bread, spice, rye, lots of earthy notes into some slight white fruit, some grass and herbs. Taste is a mix of herbs, grass, slight bread into a hint of grain, touch of earth into more fruit, some slight spice with yeast and rye, finishing dry.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at New Bohemia. Gold with some minor lacing. Taste is right in the saison wheelhouse...pretty standard stuff. Rye spiciness. Some hop bitterness. Falls a bit short of great. Not bad though. Worth a sample if youíre coming through Mpls.

Nice addition of the rye spiciness. Your classic saison farmhouse qualities. Aroma was lacking but all around nice beer.
