3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2014. A nice bright golden looking slightly clouded one with a good looking white medium sized really lacing white head. Citrus on the nose. Also tones of lemons, lots of oranges, wheat sweetness and a loud grassy kick. Not bad at all, fresh. It’s mild oily in the mouth and just above average on the bubbles. Lots grapefruit citrus in the taste. Also, it’s really astringent with a month drying sensation after a while. Hay and lemons. Well, I really enjoyed the aroma but to taste did not completely match it. Still... 02.05.2014

Bottle. Pours hazy golden with a soft white head. Immediately smell lemon with a little hint of clove. Tastes of toast, cream, lemongrass, and a little peach. Definitely different from other Saisons. Has a buttery creamy smooth palate with just the right amount of carbonation. A crisp and refreshing beer.

Overall quite nice and complex. Has some light tartness with a good deal of earthiness and cereal. Finishes a bit dry with some nice pepper notes. Reminds me a little bit of sofie, though a bit more earthy.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
The beer is a pale golden color. It’s quite cloudy. They head is big, fluffy and white. Good lacing, retention. A nice layer sticks around for quite awhile. The aroma is a mix fruity and farmhouse flavors. There’s fruit from hops and yeast. Tangerine, apricot, honeysuckle, mango. Pleasantly sweet and interesting. Subtler farmhouse dustiness, mostly in the background. Mouthfeel is very gentle and full. Distinctly similar to Troublesome. Gives the taste a gentle, full character. The taste is moderately sweet with fresh grain. The fruit shows up strong. Firm bitterness, particularly in the finish. Mild farmyard flavor, mild funk. Interesting mix of flavors. The mouthfeel is really key to this beer, and I hope it’s a hallmark of Off Color. The beer is soft and easy to drink with lots of flavor. Tasty.
