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

On draft at Alewife. This is a sweet, juicy saison-like brew, one of the best tasting saisons/festbiers I’ve had. Plum, raisin, yeasty bread, and apricot. The aroma gets nice & sweet as it warms.

Smell was Smokey. Flavor of malt, yeast with a suttle smokiness. Pretty good representation of the style

jredmond (5031) - Manhattan, New York, USA - DEC 16, 2013
Draft at Proletariat with Linh and Andy. Pours a clear amber body with white head. Aroma is meat, earthy character and wood. Mouthfeel is medium with nice notes of meat, smoke and wood. On the verge of showcasing some band-aid character, but thankfully not really.

seth_lfod (322) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Growlette from the source. Pours a semi opaque amber color with no head. Smell is very saison like, peppery, yeast, and smoke. Taste is very smoke and spice forward. Good beer, just too much smoke.

callmemickey (2272) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 11, 2013
Hazy golden-yellow body, smallish white head, spotty lacing. Smoke, light toasted grains, a little must and citric and lactic acidity. Medium bodied, gentle carbonation, soft finish.

nimbleprop (4200) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 28, 2013
12oz at Meridian Pint. Pours a hazy orange with some thin, white head. Nose os a nice blend of malt, cracker, orange, biscuit, but also a nice, appealing smoke, applewood, smoked oyster, a little sausage. Flavor is well blended too, malty, sweet, orange juice, some honey, smoke is lighter, grass, burnt hay, a little smoked salmon. Crisp, dry finish. A nice riff on a fall beer.
