2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft at the Birch. Much darker than I’d anticipated, fairly solid orange. The aroma is full-on sour, also completely unexpected. But it drinks with a funky farmhouse character that’s all up front; virtually nothing remains in the oddly watery finish. (#4820, 11/10/2012)

Taster on draft. Clear golden pour. Hay and wet horse blanket, like it was brewed in the barn... Funky!

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Golden yellow to orange clear beer which becomes hazy with the yeast poured in. Makes little white head. Aroma is mostly sweet anise, not my thing. Flavor has anise, malts with little sourness. Finish is short with some bitterness. Palate is medium full with light carbonation. I don’t know much about saisons but to me the anise doesn’t fit and I’d prefer a heavier hopping. Still a decent brew with dinner (spinach omelette @ Tuulensuu).

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
@ Party Source / Bellvue KY - Cloudy bright copper with a head that drops to the rim, a few dots of lace. Taste is malt that is quickly obliterated by a tart, sour, acidic citrus, and a hint of pepper and ginger that carries to the finish. It is different (perhaps that is the Wallonian?), but not quite as drinkable as traditional brews, or even traditional lambics and guezes. It is its own breed - drinkable, but not one I prefer.

0.75l bottle. Clear amber body, off-white head. The aroma is like the air of a wine cellar with some champagne, apple and orange peel. Taste of toast and cherry. The texture is silky. Interesting beer, I like it.
