On tap at the Brass Tap poured a golden color with aromas of funk, vinegar, light pepper, and some frjit. Flavors are the same as the aroma but with some light coffee. Intereating sassion, but decent none the less.

Tap at Engine 15 for 12 hours of RBWG. Pours a glowing, bright golden. Wispy lacing. Nose is all vinegar- very intense salty white vinegar. Taste is all vinegar as well. Couldn’t finish this. I don’t mind acetic beers, but there was nothing else here besides the vinegar.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Brass Tap Trinity. Pours a cloudy golden orange color with a foamy white head that fades into a small film fairly quickly. Aroma has a good bit of Saison funk along with sour fruit, pepper and a hint of coffee. The coffee begins to make a bigger appearance in the flavor although not at first. Initial sips have a lot of Belgian yeast and pepper. Coffee comes through a bit more as it warms. Dry tartness in the finish.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Holy Grale courtesy of Tyler, thank you sir! Cloudy yellow color, massive white ice cream cone head, delicate lacing. Aroma of straw, white pepper, subtle espresso and barnyard. Coffee is slightly more pronounced in the taste, but still subtle enough, with a bit of lemon and black pepper. Unique.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at Country Boy. Lemon and miso taste. Maybe sushi. Yellow body. Quite different overall. Almost a seaweed taste. In place of coffee, I really get sushi or green pepper.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at The Boilermaker in Philadelphia, PA.
Pours a very cloudy, golden orange color with a two finger frothy white head that slowly settles into a thick, lasting ring. Streaks of soapy lace left behind.
Odd aroma with a nutty coffee presence that clashes with the earthy farmhouse yeast. Zesty, peppery spices with some bready yeast and light fruit notes. Thankfully coffee isn’t too strong but it’s there with a subtle roasty generic coffee character. Weird.
Medium bodied but fuller than expected with an odd combo of saison and coffee flavors. Coffee flavor is subtle and doesn’t come until the finish but lingers long and dry. Lots of earthy spice, clove, pepper and coriander followed by bready yeast. Almost has a hefe flavor with some banana as well. Decent amount of farmhouse funk but it’s cut in the finish by the dry roasted coffee. Really weird how the coffee comes in and cuts things off. Strange combination that doesn’t work particularly well. Not terrible just weird with competing flavors.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draft at Swamp Head. Pours a hazy yellow with a HUGE white head. Nose is some sweet malt, bright tropical fruit and pineapple brett with brett all over and a nice coffee presence in the background. Flavor is similar with sweet malt, brett, and mild coffee in the background and finish. Medium body and interesting saison overall.
