4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a hazy golden with a slight white head. Aroma is sweet, some hay. Flavor is great - slight sweetness, wheat crispness and a bit of typical saison spice and funk. Creamy mouthfeel on top of all that makes this a real winner

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
"This rustic ale was the surprise of the night and IMHO far superior to the solid year round and seasonal saisons from The Bruery. Bright and aromatic, quite fruity and spicy, with a good dose of fresh grassy hops and some oak that shines through as well. One of the better saisons I’ve had."

Thanks, Todd! Served in a Bruery tulip. Mild funk and a bit of backing phenolics. Mild grain and bitterness. Enjoyable.

Bottle. Pours a clear, golden color with a fluffy white head. Fruity aroma mixed with the belgian yeast esters. Nice lace as the head settles. Medium mouthfeel. Not as fruity as I would have expected given the nose but decent nonetheless. Some earthy tones. Easy drinking. Slight lingering bitterness in the end that I am not the biggest fan of.
