Bottle sample. Pours a hazy golden color with a small off white head. The aroma has tart fruits, citrus, some tropical notes, grass, oak, and some funk. The flavor is dry grassy, oak, citrus, apples, funk with a mild tart character and some acidity. Interesting mix of flavors.

11/14/12. 750mL bottle thanks to Lukaduke - thanks, man! After popping the cap, the foam slowly starts to rise to the top - but we had glasses handy. Hazy golden pour with a big off-white head that cuts but laces plenty. Nice funky, lightly tart aroma with plenty of lemon and a bit of wood. Really nice flavor with more funky tartness, lemon, citrus, funk, yeast, a bit of wood, and touches of pale malts and grass. Tasty and drinkable - I would drink the shit out of this if it were near me and cheap. I shared this with a few other people and they agreed it was tasty and they were going to seek out other beers from this brewery. Thanks, Luke!

TheAlum (6373) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - OCT 29, 2013
Bottle shared at Lightening Day. Thanks! Pours a nice decent hazed hue, golden orange, a bit dulled with some gentle darker glow. Frothy whitish head atop stays as a mellow frothy layer, decent ring laces ok. Aromas are gentle sweetness, dough and pear, some subtle tartness. Mellow touches of yeast, vanilla, oak. Some touches of gentle brett, dust, and mellow sweetness. Touches of oak, gentle tangerine, Chardonnay. Initial lighter end of the fold, some tangerine, white grape and melon. Nice mellow fruit presence meets a touch of dryness, oak, and mellow white wine. Subtle brett is gentle, touches of dust and cobwebs. Mellow oak, some more fruit presence, just a touch tart. A bit fuzzy, some gentle dryness, brett, and tannic oak as we move on. Some gentle sweetness starts to die out. Some nice dryness, mellow fruit, brett, and barrel. Solid.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 23, 2012
In short: A rustic, tart, acidic and oaky Saison-like ale. Good beer.
How: Tap at Hill Farmstead Farmhouse Saison Festival 2012.
The look: Cloudy blond body topped by a small white head.
In long: Nose is musty, a bit of funk and with plenty of oak barrels but not a bourbon character (I was told the barrels were bourbon, might be wrong). Taste is I very rustic, sun dried straw and hay, dusty attic, musk, salty/minerals sensation, fresh virgin oak, apples, lemons, bananas, ripe citrus fruits, a bit of funk. Razor sharp finish that is rather tart and dry with a fair amount of acidity. Not sure what happened to the “Pale Ale” part of the beer here, this to me was a truly rustic Saison even though its present ratebeer style is simply Belgian Ale. Enjoyed at the Hill Farmstead Farmhouse Saison Festival where I had way too much to drink, and if at a beer festival you have never been voted "Most likely not to live to the next year edition of the festival" than clearly we don’t have the same lifestyle.

Bottle @ The Clerkenwell Share. Thanks to whoever brought this along! Gold pour with a small white head. Nose is pretty sweet and fruity. Peach orchard. Apricot and nectarine fruit salad. Tangy fruit skin. Taste is has some wind barrel character. Lightly tart. A hint of booze. Some cheese/strawberry that I usually associate with sorachi ace. Plum and lemon zest. Very soft carbonation makes the beer feel a bit leaden on the palate. Interesting, but all over the place.
