Belgian style farmhouse ale from the Goose Island Clybourn brewpub; traditionally brewed strong to last through the summer months to the next brewing season. Raw barley is used for a round body as well as some caramel malt for color. Well-hopped with Strisselspalt and Styrian Goldings for a nice hoppy nose.

Tap at Blind Tiger Alehouse. Deep, hazy amber beer. Aroma is a bit toasty, lightly malty with a touch of herbal tobaccoish character. A bit fruity and a sort of cellery/corky character. Yeasty and a touch of noble/herbal hops. Earhty and chewy with some lingering rich French malt sweetness. Fairly atypical brew... more biere de garde than saison, but it’s still pretty interesting.

Draught @ BTAH. Pours hazy light amber, no head. Nose is grassy, herbal hops, and some sweet, raw malt. Flavor is richly sweet, caramel sweetness from the raw malt with a grainy, cereal edge. On top of that sits a big, grassy, herbal hop note from beginning to end. Bit of spicy yeast in there also, as an undercurrent. The rawness of the barley makes a huge difference in the flavor - the fresh cereal flavors come out much more clearly. Light in body, with a light, crisp carbonation.
