4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Purchased 750 ML bottle at BevMo in Redding, CA. APPEARANCE / THE POUR: Medium light golden color, with 2-finger rocky head, excellent Brussels lace. AROMA / BOUQUET: Very similar to a Saison- it has that fresh grass, fresh sourdough bread smell, yeasty, granny smith green apples. Has a bit of the brett funk smell to it. TASTE: Nice hoppy / sour balance- great astringent cidery character to it. Fresh herbs, I don’t get the slight sweetness that some people say that is in this beer... it tastes like a good example of the French Biere De Garde style. MOUTHFEEL / PALATE: Great fizziness, carbonation that hits the nose while swallowing. Great aftertaste, hop balance / sourness that hits the entire mouth. OVERALL: This beer exceeded my expectations... I will buy this again! Blessings and honor to this one!!

Pint poured at waypoint public house in San Diego. Pours copper with white head and good lacing. Server described their beers as having "funky"
Flavors and it was a good deScriptor. Little smell other than yeast. Taste was smooth with a peppery finish. Little carbonation. While it’s good, I don’t love it but I suspect it’s a style thing rather than a flavor thing.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma of malts and hops. The malt is on the sweet and metallic side, the hops are floral, blond. Lovely golden, hazy. Sparkling. Excellent head, frothy. Bittersweet taste. Not much of anything. Seems thin on the palate, bitter finish which I quite like. Not a bad beer, nor is it a great beer.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.75 bottle. Clear, dark orange color and a large, off-white head of good retention leaving notable lacing. The aroma is malty, mostly caramel with a touch of hops and an unfortunate hint of metal. The taste is sweet, mostly fruity with grains, malts, and flowers all adding to the composition. A medium body, a somewhat creamy texture, and a soft carbonation. Finish is long, gets slowly bitterer with time and strikes everything just a tiny bit off-balance. Overall this is certainly a good beer, hard to find much to complain, though it is not exactly praiseworthy either.

Yellow color with foam layer. Light alcoholic and yeasty nose with hints of fruits. Milky mouth feeling with a sweet and alcoholic taste. Strong and mild at the same time. Calm and light alcoholic aftertaste.

Bottle. Some apples, some grapes, but rather low in aroma. Some farmhouse. Very round and balanced, but not much of anything. I’m a bit torn about this, as it is easy to drink but rather mellow at the same time.

Rating #1508 - 16.03.2015 - On tap @ Moray’s Lounge in the Catamaran Hotel. Pours a hazy straw colour with a frothy white head, not much lacing. Aroma is of citrus, bread dough, yeast. Clean mouthfeel, medium carbonation, mild alcohol warmth. Taste is a crisp sweetness, tempered with herbal wheaty notes, and beautifully balanced. Mild funk, medium bodied. Lovely.
