3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled on August, 2012: Golden amber. Persistent white head deposits wispy lace on the glass. Pleasant nose of lilac, cherimoya, vanilla cake, candied lemon peel, grassy herbs, tangerine, and white pepper. Hint of candy sugar and gum. Fine carbonation. Moderate punch of alcohol succumbs to a plasticlike phenolic snap upfront. Succulent hop smack joins the refined tangerine juice residuals which gracefully coat the tongue with a flowery brightness. Semi-candyish in sweetness, yet rather than hampering quaffability, the sugars lend tremendous depth. Ample counterbalancing crispness abounds as the sophisticated pils malt gains more vigor from the peppery yeast. Some wheatlike slickness in there, as well. Complex hoppiness ranges from coarsely leafy and bracingly herbaceous to lapping the palate with a Stryianesque lilac-tinged suppleness and ensuing waves of palate-stinging oils. Hints of chalk exude from the fairly high resin content (Columbus?), though plenty of floral elegance remains to keep it from becoming distracting or fatiguing. Well-attenuated finish features a soft mandarin orange explosiveness and a well-textured cakey malt base laced with sassy phenolic fervor and an intricate hop continuation. A tad resinous for my tastes, but there’s plenty of sublime yeast byproducts to make up for it. Comes off as a saison splashed with tripel. Pretty, indeed.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice barnyard aroma. Some cheese and peppers. Reminds me a bit of Dupont. Light golden color. Nice acidity on the tongue. Farmhouse yeast pops right out. Subtle bitterness. Extremely well made. I would well imagine that Dupont is the influence behind this beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light golden color with white head. Peppery aroma. Sharp bitterness at first and a bubbling bitterness stays on the tongue along with taste of herbs I cant identify. Good but a bit to long bitter aftertaste for my taste.
