12 oz. bottle from Chris - thanks again, Chris. Minhas! Wow, that makes sense. Pours a clear gold if you can keep the yeast floaters at the bottom from pouring in; I spotted them in the bottle, and left the last ounce or so in there. Small white head that settles into a wispy film and a ring. A metric shit ton of banana in the nose, with caramel and sweet bread, dried fruits like golden raisins and figs, phenols, a lot of sugar, and a bit of a metallic note. Medium-full bodied, with moderate carbonation and a really sweet and heavy mouthfeel. This one’s a load. 12 oz. is too much. 5.5% but drinks like double that level.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. bottle poured to a shaker at the bar in the Shoreline Restaurant in Gills Rock, WI.. Displayed a hazed, orangey gold hue, with some lingering fluffiness to the off white head foam, and spots of lacing. The nose was lightly dank & earthy, with soft esters. Light+ bodied, with fair carbonation, the taste was honey sweet, with low, earthy bitterness, and noticeable, buttery diacetyl. Didn’t finish. Saison/farmhouse ale? Not enlightened.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Oh gracious this is made at Minhas?
Pours golden & perfectly clear with a loose small head that falls fairly quickly.
The aroma is sort of spicy with some lavender and metallic characteristics.... overall it’s really not very aromatic.
The beer is lightly fruity with a mild minerallity. It’s pretty sweet and has a sort of sweet corn thing happening. The beer is spicy a little soapy... sort of tastes like apples. ugh.
The beer sits unnecessarily heavy on the palate but has a carbonation that provides a little liveliness. It leaves a real bad lingering sensation on the finish.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Everything about this is too sweet. Floral aroma, caramel and fruit flavors that are just too cloying before an overly sweet finish.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This pours an orange bodied brew with a scrawny bubbly head that’s little more than a film. It smells fruity, cherries with an apple slice, and has some burnt light brown sugar. It’s watery and the light flavor is mildly fruity with a soft earthy bitterness. The finish is watery. "Drafty Window" somehow fits.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured a clear copper color with a fine head and minimal lacing. Aroma was of prune-like sweet fruits/malt. Taste is similar with a sweet malty front end followed with a slight prune flavoring and a light hop bitterness finish. Palate is decent. Overall, an OK farm house ale.
