3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Orange-gold pour with an ample white head that quickly settles down. Nose is cinnamon, spicy rye, a bit of anise, and plenty of yeasty, rustic charm. Very nice. Flavor reminds me of tangerine marmalade spread over a tender, flaky biscuit and dusted lightly with fresh ground black pepper. Carb is slightly aggressive, and the body seems a little slick. The perceived sweetness in the finish holds it back a bit.
Interesting and enjoyable beer that I am glad to have tried. Great nose that I wish I could capture and carry around with me. Booyah body spray? Thanks, Matt!

On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear gold with an orange hue and an off-white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of spice, flora and sweet grain with a hint of citrus. Flavor has heavy flora and spice with backing sweet grains and light fruit.

Bottle to snifter. Lots of interesting notes on the nose. Lots of fruity notes. Peach, some orange, a little apricot. Lots of soft citrus. Some earthy yeastiness. Gold orange pour with moderate white head. Nice surprise on this beer. I enjoyed it.

Bottle - Pours clear yellow with a nice foamy white head. Nose is light, delicate spice--clove, cardamom, white pepper--with some banana notes and light, dusty yeast. Wow...loving this nose, and I wasnít expecting it at all. Taste is mellow tropical fruit, apple, pear, a touch of spice, and the same dusty yeast, though subdued. A bit of mustiness, but really, really smooth. Get the oats on the finish, and Iím wondering if thatís whatís giving it the big, smooth, slick body. Carbonation is a bit too high, but thatís all that stops this from being something I could drink all afternoon. Loved this one, and it was totally unexpected. May have to give this brewery a second look.

Draft at Milwaukee Brewing. Pours a hazed deep gold with orange highlights and a fluffy white head that persists. Nose is strange. Not a great Belgian profile, clovey and peppery but also kind of vegetal and banana. Some pilsner malt as well. On tasting, pretty dry and somewhat malty but again the yeast is strange. A weird appley note and some old bananas. Okay but doesnít really work for me.

Bottle courtesy of nuplastikk, thank you sir! Not much info on the label except "Farmhouse Ale" and the Surgeon Generalís warning. Good thing Iím not pregnant. Deep murky orange color, small white head, scant lacing. Aroma or orange peel, light spice, very mild funk. Taste is citrus and light spice. OK.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Poured medium golden with a colossal white head that never really went down. The aroma picked up yeasty notes, earth, and white pepper over pale and bready malts.. more yeasty on the back of the nose.. decent. The flavor found the same thick dose of yeast, with lemon zest, coriander, and cloves around.. spices were thick and quasi-enjoyable on the back. Medium-bodied with moderate carbonation on the palate.. heavy on the spices and yeast.. overall drinkable, but far from great.

Clear amber with a soapy white slowly dissipating head. Aroma of grains, spices, mild fruit, yeast, toasted malt and light caramel. Taste of yeast, fruit, caramel, light lemon and grains. Dry finish and kinda bland.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle.
It pours a nice gold with a large, foamy white head.
The smell is unique. It has a noticeable sourness to it with some vinegar, but also dominating characteristics of a saison yeast, it is big and spicy.
The taste is similar, spicy with a hint of tartness. for the abv it is pretty refreshing actually although the sweetness is there.
Not a bad beer, an experiment perhaps that turned out exceptionally well.
