3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Strange. Pours with a hazed golden hued body and a lasting white head. Aromas are spicy (phenols) with quite a few esters (notably apple). A rich saison yeast character. Flavors are medium bitter, spicy, phenol, clove. Medium bubbles, dry. Really nice saison yeast flavors (seemed Dupont-esque).
I liked this quite a bit more than the Patience Saison.

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.
