[ Tap ][ 5oz ][ O’Briens SD ][ $2 ][ Shooter Tumbler ][ 1.31.15 ]
>> Pours hazy white straw with thick 360 lacing. Nose is an odd mix of fennel, licorice, lemon balm, allspice, dried orange peel. Taste begins with a squashy hoppy note, honeydew rind, super crisp and dry pils malt base gives a similar feel really to the STS Pils. Somewhat soapy. Light acid in background, lime squeeze. Malt base is an insanely crisp, crackery, sharp one. Crushable type of saison with no esters, sugar, alcohol, or other silly things that can kill a saison experience.

Very interesting blend of hoppy beer and farmhouse. From tap, foaming white head. Orange, tastes very farmhouse lemon, spice. Light body. Hops add a nice kick. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ron (2951) - Rochester, New York, USA - OCT 24, 2014
On tap at Russian River. Arrived at the table a hazed light yellow color with a small white head that left stringy lacing. Faint aroma, citric and sour apples. Flavor is sour apples, citric and a little funky, lemon and herbal notes as well. Crisp carbonation, medium body and refreshing to drink.

Sampled on draft at GABF 2014. Pours a clear yellow with foamy white head. Aroma is clean and yeasty. Mouthfeel is soft and lightly carbonated with notes of yeast, clean malt, grass, spice and wheat. Nice, clean and simple.

TheAlum (6193) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - OCT 12, 2014
GABF 2014 Rating (Denver, CO). Pours a pale yellow lemon hue, decent haziness, frothy bright white creamy head as a thicker film, nice lacing and retention. Aromas are spicy and yeasty, some gentle fruit, bitter earth and florals. Some firm yeast, estery fruit shows banana, apple and pear. Gentle citrus, a bit floral. Initial is a bit soapy, fruity, faint bubblegum, pear and apple. Touches of dry and spicy yeast, straw, mellow fruit. Stillk a smaller body leads. Itself to a more dry and spicy, gently bitter backend. Wjole some nice fruit jabs come in the nose and front, the beer itself finishes dry, clean with just a mellow spiciness. Touches of gentle tropical fruit, citrus. Tasty stuff.
