In short: A tart refreshing semi-rustic Saison. Nice beer.
How: Bottle 22oz
The look: Cloudy dark blonde body topped by a large off-white head
In long: Nose is slightly rustic with citric and tropical fruits. Taste is plain crackery malts, citric/lemony notes, some citrus fruits. Rustic yeast here and there. Finish is rather tart and dry. Lots of soft bubbles. I thought this was a rather refreshing take on the style, one I would love to drink by the pints. My second and last rating in tasting where 1,000 beers were opened. Because after that beer itís all a blur. Iím not sure if I had a good time. At least when I woke up I wasnít sore in the part of my body Iím always afraid will be sore after passing out. Good.

Bottle thanks to Scott, shared with others at the post NotB tasting. Poured a cloudy gold with a slight yellow hue and a white head that last. Aroma was full of floral notes as well as some light fruits that had a slight tart note and a bit of backing pepper and citrus. Flavor was similar with notes of flowers, light fruits and citrus with a slight tartness and yeast note in the finish.

Bottle at the hotel tasting after Night of the Barrels at EBF. Pours a hazed gold with a thin white head. Fuzzy, with a nice citrus and wheat note. Caramel comes out a bit as it warms. Toast and a long musky finish.

Ughsmash (7172) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 15, 2011
Bomber. Poured light-medium orange with a nice cap of off-white head. The aroma picked up lots of spices (coriander and grains of paradise) and orange zest.. decent components, but they really didnít go well together.. spicy yeast was nice on the back of the nose. The flavor found the same tart spices and orange zest throughout.. grainy pale malts supported.. sour finish with a hefty dose of orange and more grainy sweetness.. a little heavy to be refreshing. Medium-bodied and scratchy on the palate.. I wanted light and lively, but it ended up fairly heavy and muddled.

Deep orange pour with a lacy head. Aroma is pepper, fruit, yeast and malt. Flavor isyeast, malt, grains, and spices. Hoppy finish. Not great.
