2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle dated 12/5/12. Orange gold with ring. Mild tart citrus and sweet peachy with some "in its own syrup" sweetness. Orange sweet fruitiness slightly overripe with finishing overripe orange peel rind gritty herbal bitterness and slight bitter fruity herbal cloy. Thick sticky body totally inappropriate (IMHO). Steers clear of cough syrup but the body is all wrong. Not good. Not sure I’ll finish.

On tap at the pub. Pours a beautiful bright pale golden with a fluffy white head. Aroma is nice and softly spicy, some easy sweet grainy and lightly floral notes. The hops are there and a touch spicy but mostly on the herbal side, creating an easy soft nose. Flavor is well rounded, moderately spiced and a touch hoppy, a slight citric note. Holds a light grainy straw character throughout before and earthy herbal finish. Medium body and an active carbonation. Nice saison, very refreshing.

A very nicely crafted Saison. The popularity of Farmhouse Ale’s are on the rise.

I do love me some Spalt. An ale that is spicy from the hops and yeast rather than kitchen-cabinet nonsense. Spicy hop aroma and flavor, going quite dry with a light malty sweetness for balance. Nice stuff. Unnecessarily strong, perhaps.

Enjoyed on tap at Revolution Brewery in Chicago, IL while eating dinner with some jabronies who I happen to be in a band with. Rated while watching Teen Wolf. Appearance a vibrant bright gold with thin white head that rims around the glass. Aroma of spices, coriander, wild yeast, very floral, stings the nostrils. Taste very floral and spicy, but smooth at the same time with decent carbonation. Wild yeast and spices are the prevalent ingredients, kind of sour in the finish. Really is pretty good.

Had this at their place in Chicago. All the beer unless noted otherwise were good to very good. Unfortunately this was rated with another program and I can't import my comments.

On tap at the brewpub. Very floral. Some spice and banana flavor. White head with some very nice lacing. A little too sweet for me on this, but some interesting flavors.

On tap at Revolution. Hazy orange with a small fizzy white head, fades quickly. Aroma is moderate malts with notes of wild yeast, light fruit, bananas, clove, caramel. Flavor is lighter than the aroma - barnyard/earth, citrus, cloves.
