COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This deep amber hued ale takes it’s inspiration from Germany while still nodding to the Belgian farmhouse tradition. The base is comprised of German two-row, wheat, Cara-Munich, and roasted barley. Generously hopped with a blend of Perle, Spalt, and Hallertau Mittelfrüh and fermented with a rustic Belgian farmhouse ale yeast. These elements together provide a melange of earth and fruit aromas backed with hints of caramel with a dry clean finish.

Was a real nice well rounded easy drinking beer with a good bit of creativity qualities flowing through. I got some cherries and a bit of fig hinting towards almost a Belgian style beer but it mellowed out with some other fruit like qualities and finished real clean and crisp.

Gusher warning. Red-brown pour with a white head. The aroma has some toffee, cherries and caramel notes. The flavor is full of grapes, cherries, toffee, tobacco and leather. Medium mouthfeel and high carbonation.

Pours very dark but has a nice after taste of a belgian. Very good and interesting.

CanIHave4Beers (3362) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - OCT 31, 2013
From a dang bottle!
Pours a deep orangish brown with a good head and some lacing on the glass.

The aroma is herbal and the malt character is lightly roasty & nutty, it’s got some reserved but bright fruit notes, some leaf rot & peppery elements... cool.

The flavor has a good bit of rich maltiness, it’s basically dry, spicy, and pleasantly herbal. The bitterness is enjoyably zippy. The beer has some nutty flavors and some doughy yeastiness.

Robust and satisfying.

På fat. Mörkbrun med vitt fluffigt skum. Röda bär och röda frukter samt karamell i doften. Citrus, lingon, jordgubbar och jordighet i smaken. Champagnetorr munkänsla. Känns mer som en saison än en BA. God var den i vilket fall.

Poured a very deep garnet colour with nearly no head. Nose is slightly grassy. Not very saison like in the mouth and a thin, metallic palate.

Doofgoblin (338) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 5, 2013
The aroma is great with lots of belgian banana notes and funky saison character. I really like this... The taste is some nice belgian notes, banana, malt, funky, with some hop character that really adds a good sort of bitterness. Love the finish! Delicious.

Draft sampled at Pizzeria Paradiso Dupont. Pours clear brown with an off white head. Aroma of saison yeast, citrus and spice. Flavour is moderate sweet and bitter. Medium bride with soft carbonation.
