3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours very murky dull amber with a huge fluffy head. The aroma has stone fruit, tropical fruit, dark bread, mushiness, overripe peaches and spice. It has a medium / light body that seems lush at first, but comes across as sharper as a huge amount of carbonation overtakes everything. The flavor starts off with spicy / fruity hops, earthy rustic saison notes, anise, dried apricots and spice. The finish has some sulfur and is very dry. There is a nice spicy / fruit / earthy hops presence that lingers. If the carbonation was taken down a couple notches this would have been even better, but quite nice as it is.

Great beer. Strong smell of horseblanket and it indeed tastes like a barnyard. This may sound nasty, but it’s a great beer. Very earthy, fruity, grassy and dry.

Had at Sheraton 4 Points LAX
500 ML bottle
Hazy yellow color. Firm, tight white head. good lacing and body to head.
Nose is bread, grapefruit, pine, and grass.
Taste is grassy with grapefruit notes and bread. More towards the malt side I thought.
Crisp and clean, very dry with touches of grass.
Not as good as the Bridge Roads version. far more complex

Draft @ Wildeman. Aroma is nice bretty fruity hoppy, light grassy/earthy. Flavour has a nice red fruit bretty note, fruity hops, dry, but not too much. Exactly what you’d expect. In a good way.
