3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle... Hazy golden ale with a mid-sized, soapy, white head. Great retention. Spicy, herbal nose - white pepper is front and center. Medium to full-bodied with champagne-like carb. The bittersweet flavor is a mélange of toffee, herbs, roots and spices. Finishes malty, spicy and tongue-numbing. Thanks to biggsbowler for sharing this beer with the south Florida crew!

Bottle courtesy of Paul at Andy’s for Paul’s birthday and Joey’s going away (and hopefully coming back at some point) tasting. Pours a hazed amber with a thin white head. Lightly fuzzy yeast, a bit of sweetness, musky. Sweet, lightly vegetal, sweet and a touch of popcorn, turning into a light spicy note. Weird. Soft funk and musk on the finish. Weird.

Bottled at the Festival of Farmhouse Ales. Orangish-yellow, quite dark, with a very fine, high head. Malty nose, a lot of biscuits, bread, a little citrus. Really similar to Saison Dupont. Flavor is grass, citrus, bread. Again, close to Dupont. Lacks the complexity and the crispness, but close and likewise very nice.
