Growler filled at Big Z and consumed the same day. Pours a clear reddish brown with a moderate tan head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left very light lace. Pleasant aroma of malt and Belgian yeast. The flavor is very similar with malt and Belgian yeast both dominating with just a bit of fruit as well. Very mild sweetness. I would not have have imagined this as a saison. Nice solid beer as it is.

Thanks to Matt. Carbonated and dark in color. Nothing like a saison as description here reads. Vanilla. Malty. Some caramel. Nice.

Sixer of longnecks from the Patels’ rip and run. Nose of falling leaves and moist soil. Pleasantly musty. Pours a deep ruby brown with a thin tan head. Light bodied. an interesting yeasty spicyness that drifts directly to finish. Nice.

12oz bottle purchased at brewery. Toffee color, tall tan head, mild yeasty nose. Yeast and malt on palate with a classic sour Belgian signature. A real winner for me.

Growler from j12601. Pours a brown color, with a nice tan head. Aroma is fruity and yeasty with a slight funk/tartness to it. Flavor is good. Fruity, funk, caramel and a bit dry. Nice brew.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. Pours just barely opaque brown- little bit of dark copper shines through. Head is off-white or beige. Good lacing. Aroma of banana and bubble gum (well said Brewbie). Flavor is fruity with lots of yeast-i-ness. Dark fruit finish is really tasty. I live in Ithaca, and this may be my favorite beer from them, ever.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap for growler fills at Half Time. Pours a just clear brown with ruby highlights and a large tanned beige head. Malty, with a light roast, bit of hay, caramel, and a touch of banana as it warms. Fruity with some typical saison yeast flavors and a good plum note. Crisp dry finish with a bit of banana and clove. Rather different and neat.

growler from the brewery. dark with amber highlights, small thin head. aroma of bubblegum and yeast. taste is yeast and malt with a bit of tartness in the finish. a bit of earth in the taste, and smooth drinking with a solid mouth feel. very different from my ’normal’ drinking habits but i really enjoyed it
