4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the Falling Rock and served in a pint glass. Bright yellow-orange. Smells very interesting, spicy and sweet, floral, smells good. The taste was also sweet and made me think of honey and then spices. Overall this was a nice saison although it did have a bevy of different flavors so it was a little more intense than most saisons I’m used to.
Serving type: on-tap

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft. Dark gold amber pour. Foamy lacey white head. Pungent Brett barrel flavors coming off the top. Bit like a soured Chardonnay. Lots of grassy notes. Lemon pith. Straw. Earthy funk. Lots of flavor to this saison/farmhouse brew. Can see that the slightly acetic sour could turn some people off. Might be a bad pairing if you are eating something delicate. Interesting and wild. Clever but brash.
