3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft... RBSG 2014… Pours hazy and dirty-orange with a small creamy white head. Good retention. The nose is a yeast-driven mélange of esters and phenols - peach, pear, farmhouse spiciness and anise. Full-bodied and milky with tingly carbonation. The yeast-driven flavor duplicates the nose, except it supplies even more phenolic, farmhouse, clove-like spiciness. Spice-rack aftertaste as well. Pretty good, and thoughtfully crafted, but these farmhouse/saison phenol bombs are not my thing.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Bountiful pour of opaque golden-orange topped by some big, rolling piles of white foam. There is but a hint of yeasty funk in the aroma, otherwise it seems quite tranquil. The beers flavors are in line with tradition ... light esthers, tropical fruit, under-baked bread. Even keeled and easy to drink for an 8.5% beer, and worth the price. (#5573, 7/7/2014)

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer is slightly cloudy orange in the glass and has a small ring of white head. I am getting big time cherry fruitiness in the the nose. It is a bit on the sweet side but has a nice fruity character at least. It has brisk carbonation and light bitterness in the finish. It’s pretty tasty overall but definitely not my favorite from this brewer.
