COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Complex flavors and aromas come from a variety of sources. Barley malt and wheat help create a smooth body and attribute a pleasant golden hue while the addition of malted rye and oats brings out a solid earthy flavor. Czech Saaz Hops help create a citrus nose. What makes this beer truly special is the Saison Ale yeast strain used to ferment this beer. The subtle hints of tangerine, peach and licorice are the hallmarks of this particular yeast.

On tap at Old Fashioned, pours a clear golden with a thin head, the aroma has some fruity touches and yeast, the flavor has a ton of barnyard funk with must, kind of dirty tasting, really didn’t dig this one all that much.

UPDATED: JUN 18, 2013 Lots of different aromas (spruce and pepper) and tastes (bitter and sour) going on here. Nothing overwhelmingly successful, but in MKE you always appreciate the effort!

On tap at the brewhouse. The aroma wasn’t too great. Some decent flavors and spiciness to it, but pretty thin.

notalush (4795) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 14, 2013
Light copper with a tiny bit of haze - soapy lace - nose is very sweet, with strong apricot and mango notes, light rye, light starchiness - low carbonation - flavor is quite sweet - moderate apricot, peach, and very lightly musky pineapple - husky rye late - some starchy and doughy yeast - sweet and mildly spicy finish - not much of a saison.

From the 12-ounce bottle, this had a ridiculous pour. Its white head filled a good 7/8s of the glass and took a long time to calm down. When it finally appeared, the body had a rich golden color. The aromas (when it finally appeared) was warm bread with a touch of floral scents. The flavor had dull lemon and zest and was tangy, seltzer-like, with an underlying pale malt sweetness. The finish was quite dry. This is drinkable, but the pour alone makes it not worth the effort.

Bottle. Very zesty, with lots of citrus flavor, but felt fizzy and unsubstantial. Good on flavor, but lacks body.

Dark gold color. A smell of belgiany yeast. Served at 60 degrees, I can appreciate the beer but the Belgian smell is a little too much for me. It’s a simple beer that may need a little more temperature control.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - NOV 23, 2012
Bottle. Pours a hazy apricot with a big fluffy white head. Nose is sugary and lightly cereal. Palate is quite carbonated. Flavors of light sugar sweetness, possibly infected. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

As soon as I smelled it I knew I wasnt going to be something I enjoyed. Unfinishable for me.
