3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap as 8.3% with 43 IBU. I dont think this is a proper saison, more of a strong alt. If it is a saison, it’s the most unique saison I ever did have. Amber in color. Pretty malty aroma, with biscuity caramel and some funky orange citrus. Taste was toffee, some citrus, and some brown sugar. Pretty medium bodied for such a high ABV. Dry ripe fruits on he finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
At first, I was suspicious of this being another entry, assuming it was the same as their other farmhouse ale - however, this is clearly a different beer - much drier and mor tart, with a higher abv - moderately phenolic, with a bit of crackery malt and quite a bit of citric tang - a bit of malt sweetness on the tail end is a bit unwelcome, but the tartness persists enough to balance it a bit - mild funkiness in the finish - decent.
