COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A farmhouse-style Festbier. Malty but dry, creamy yet crushable. A gentle hint of noble hops and an enigmatic Saison aura.

On tap at Goods from the Woods 2014 with Festero. Not sure why they would confuse us with a name like oxtoberfest, Marzen this is not. Smokey light malty sweetness hints of floral spicy hops and a rustic earthy funk. Nice brew with a bit of a confounding moniker.

Bottle at Crooked Stave with friends. Pour is hazy orange with a big tan head and decent lacing. Huge smoky, meaty, some tang, woody, and bacon in the aroma. Taste is big lemony, smoky, woody, some pepper, lacto notes, and meat drippings with a semi-tart finish. Neodymium mouthfeel with high carbonation. Not very good.
