3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slightly hazy, light amber pour with a tall, chunky, off white head Aroma of spicy yeast, tree fruit, cereal, light funk, berry notes and spicy, light citrus and floral hops. Flavor is raw bready yeast, sweet malt, cereal, tree fruit, sweet and tart plums, spicy, floral and citrus hops. Lightish body light to medium body with a syrupy, slick and slightly solvent-like feel, a little like getting a bit of acetone in your mouth. A strange feeling that I usually only notice in higher ABV beers, probably has to do with high gravity/high temp. fermenting, but I donít really know what it is. Aside form the odd feel, pretty decent.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Canned. Poured clear, bright golden with a sticky white head. The aroma picked up sweet plums and clove spicage over bready malt. The flavor found black pepper, cloves, and banana over bready malt and a touch of plum.. back to the spices on the quick, dry finish. Lighter-bodied and dry.. ok feel and flow.. overall not that interesting.

Gold pour with crazy white head. Aroma is light, soft sweet grains, and stone fruit. Flavor is somewhat sweet, flavors mimicking the aroma, only a hint of plum in the lingering aftertaste.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a lightly hazy golden with a really big white head.
The aroma is just really a lot like bread dough. Itís got some decent spiciness to it. Not bad, not especially exciting...
The flavor is yeasty & a touch tinny. Some light tartness & fruitiness... but itís much more focused around the yeast driven spiciness. I could do without the metallic flavor, but itís not an offensive beer... maybe not something Iíd really get down on too often though.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tall can, thank to jsowers, 01/21/2014. Pours hazy gold, huge rocky head takes quite a while to die down. Aroma is a cloud of yeast up front, soft, mild fruitiness and cereal malts, light dampness and funk. Taste is yeast, hay, subtle tartness, grassy bitterness in the finish, touch of fruit lingering in the aftertaste. Light, crisp body with medium high carbonation, finishes dry. Not much plum as others note. Still, donít understand the relatively low score, this one seemed decent at least, going in the right direction and pretty enjoyable.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear gold color with tall foamy head. Aroma is some funky grain and a bit of sourness. Taste is wheaty, a little spicy, some grassy hops and a bit of fruitiness from the plums that lend some tartness. Plum is very faint but there. Overall, just ok for me.

A can I received in trade from UNCLEMIKE
Pretty typical as far as a "farmhouse ale" goes.
I canít really detect the plums..
I could drink this again.. Just wish it had more plum.

Big can shared by Ed5388. Ed told me that he choose the screen name Ed5388 because thatís the highest number he can count to. Poured with an appearance that seemed infected, all head at first followed by a long slow settle. Body of an orange/gold body under that ridiculous head. Aroma is all Belgian style, lots of yeast, slight fruitiness, bubble gum and chalk. Medium body with average carbonation, chalky, long lasting aftertaste. Flavor of yeast, plums, bubble gum, dry bread. Meh.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
16oz can. Pours clear, light golden in color. Aroma of citrus, coriander, sand plum. Flavor is citrus, sand plum, coriander. A decent saison, but has the added wild sand plum flavor that reminds me of sand plum jelly that my grandmother used to make.
