3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a cloudy, pale golden straw color with banana hues and a 1.5 finger frothy white head. Good retention, slowly fading into a thick, lasting ring. Spotty lacing left behind.
Musty aroma with funky farmhouse yeast, light fruit, bread and peppery spice. Subtle brett presence as well but smells more like a standard saison/pale ale hybrid. Pale biscuit malts with cracker and light fruit.
Medium body with nice balance of farmhouse/saison character and pale ale notes. Dry and musty with farmhouse funk and musty brett countered by light fruit, peppery spice, banana and bread. Slightly dry in the finish. Not overly complex but well balanced and easy to drink.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Oxbow, Portland. A dense, white head forms curtains over an unclear, yellow colored body. Citrus, orange mostly, and some pale malts in the aroma. There’s a decent bitterness in the mouth, it’s dry and medium bodied, with oranges, citrus zest and a weak malty backdrop. Soft carbonation, and a lasting bitter, almost herbal finish. Yet another nice saison from Oxbow. 150609
