Bottled. First I’ve tried in the "Trip" series. Slightly cloudy orange-brown color with minimal head and carbonation. Pleasant aroma of orange rind, apricot, pear, clove and raisin bread. A good dose of resiny sap from the aroma hops. Flavor is bitter fruit rind, grains of paradise, more clove and pear, with a nice biscuit yeast note on the finish. Dry and bitter finish. Very refreshing.

"Good use of rye here...melds well with the light farmhouse character of the beer, though I’d think of this as a rye ale before a saison, there are elements of both. Would have brought one home if there was room."

SlovakSniper (3219) - Out Of This World, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 1, 2014
Une bouteille qui n’est pas datée. Un liquide presque cuivré qui ne semble pas être trop actif. Un mince col de mousse. Quelques pointes sur la paroi de mon verre de plastique. Au nez, des parfums de seigle et des arômes de fruits doux montrent une timide affinité avec la levure qui fait le style. En bouche, des fleurs sauvages et des notes d’agrumes s’agitent dans un corps malté plutôt mince. Au palais, un liquide au profil moyen-faible avec un pétillement contrôlé et une texture légère. En finale, une petite touche d’amertume qui se combine à des tannins de feuilles. Cette bière n’est ni bonne ni mauvaise. Je n’ai pas envi de finir mon verre. Est-ce un signe qu’elle ne me plaît pas particulièrement? Je ne suis pas prêt à dire cela.

brandx (1) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 15, 2014 does not count
Tried this in a 22oz bottle. Poured with a finger width of dense white head. Bright copper color, slightly translucent Aroma of tart cherries with slightly earthy undertones. Taste-Apricot sweetness followed by floral and bready notes. No barnyard or funk that I would expect. More fruit and sweeter flavors but it finishes dry and slightly tart. A little creamy but not slick or oily. Fairly crisp finish. Overall tasty beer. Not very "farmhouse-like" No overt yeast character outside of a slight tartness and subtle earthy character. Nice drinkability.

arminjewell (6293) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 3, 2014
Pour on tap at the brewery, hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of rye, earth, spice notes, hints of white fruit, peach, pear, slight grainy notes with a hint of orange peel, grapefruit in there. Taste is a mix of grapefruit, orange, slight grass into spice, rye, slight white fruit notes, hints of biscuit, bread in there, touch of a yeasty note, finishing bitter.

Cloudy amber color with small compact head. The aroma is fruity and fresh. Malt and cereals flavor, with balanced bitterness and a very fresh fruity hopping.
Very nice.

joeneugs (3324) - Livermore, California, USA - NOV 3, 2013
On tap at the Livermore Saloon. It pours yellow with a small white head. The aroma is light citrus, spice and rye. A bit bready. The flavor is full with rye and spice and perfectly balanced with floral and citrusy hops. Full and silky mouthfeel. Mildly tart bitter finish with more spice and yeast. Yum.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 18, 2013
Bottle:   Orange hued straw, hazy, moderate to large frothy white head, nice lacing.   Light spicy nose, a little floral.   Has a faint apple and pear skin aroma too.   Not as spicy on the nose.   Rye is noticeable.   Dull floral and spicy notes.   Not bright or floral like most, but at least its spicy.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Spicy and hoppy on the exit.   Entertaining to drink, could be brighter and more floral, but its at least got some nice spiciness to it.   Decent if not really my idea of a Saison.
