3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Iron Hill, West Chester PA, 25/05/12.
Clear golden with a thin white head.
Lemon, fruit nose slightly sour, funky-ish but a little muted all round.
Taste as nose, a little brett in there, some farm, again not a huge amount of flavour.
Wasn’t a fan of this but drinkable none the less.

Pours a fairly hazy golden blonde... fairly tart funky, some lemony and spicy notes, a little wood note... fairly easy drinking... really nice beer, not overly carbonated...

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
West chester...draft...kicked the last keg! Pours an opaque yellow with a medium white head...very nice retention and lacing. Aroma has notes of oak, spice, sourness, and funk. Flavor is lemony with funk and leather. Mouthfeel is a bit flat (end of keg maybe) but the finish is citrusy, leathery, tart, and dry. Drinks a bit like a gueze.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
In short: A barnyard Saison with a strong tart/sour white grapes flavor. Very good.
How: Tap at brewpub, West Chester location
The look: Almost clear blonde body topped by a small white head
In long: Nose is barnyard and also a bit vinous (white wine obviously). Taste is rather tart with plenty of tart white grapes, notes of lemons, cobwebs, horse blanket, sourness. The rusticity of the nose is lost in the tart white grapes taste. Quite tasty and uncommon. I liked it a lot. Would you belie that before I heard of this beer I had no idea what this beer was? I hope you do.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
On draft at IH WC location, pour was hazy golden yellow, ok head and no lacing. The aroma was freaking beautiful, tart and sour lemons, slight funk, spicing (coriander?), wheaty type elements. Flavor followed as expected, cellar/musty elements just making this so beautiful, surprised it was as sour as it was, but geez, what a great thing. Yeast, light fruits, and cobwebs in the finish just made this fantastic and very well done. Why, yes, ma’am, I think I know what I’m getting myself into, but I appreciate you checking in before I ordered it! Wonderful. Clean slightly acidic finish. YUM.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This saison has got to be one of the more unique saisons I have ever tasted. The nose was quite floral, with notes of spicy and dry hops, grass, lemon and fruit. The flavors were very tart and very sour, but enjoyable nonetheless. I’m not too sure how many of these I could drink in one evening. I think the sourness would catch up to me after about the third one.

This poured a cloudy yellow color with a white head. Aroma was lots of yeasty, musty, lemony notes. Flavor was very interesting, some some of sweet melon, coriander, light bretty funk, and some lemon grass too. Interesting.

On tap at Iron Hill, our fourth stop on the RBSG bus trip. Pours a clear gold with a touch of haze. Thin to medium sized white head. Gorgeous musk, light funk on the nose. Nice and crisp, light sourness. Crisp and lingering light acidity. Very nice stuff, and the favorite of everyone at our table.
