3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Craftheads. Interesting. Aroma is saison like, grainy, and a bit unusual. Taste has bit of cherry, but cherry drop sweets or cherryade but with a bit of milk chocolate mixed in. Actually that sounds horrible, but it’s quite nice. Unthreatening, bit thin. But alright.

Dark malt accentuated light airy body.Some funk but more a smattering with a kind of cloy, confused finish. Decent but nothing I want too much of.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at 16 Tons Taphouse, Eugene. Pours a translucent reddish brown, decent amount of white head. Nose malt-forward, very different, hard to put finger on. Spelt? Dried fruit? Body lively and crisp, finish very fresh, super easy drinking. A lovely and interesting beer, perfect for sessions.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A darker version of Urban Farmhouse...still has the light farmhouse funk and is bright and vibrant, despite the lightly roasted dark malts. Not sure which is better...

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewery.
A: Mahogany colored with an off-white head.
N: Clove, dustings of cocoa. Light cherry, dark malt, and what I can only call flavored chalk.
T: Sweeter with some floral elements and bitterness.
M: Medium body. Drinkable enough.
O: A middling beer. Tasty, but very heavy, as is common for the darker saison.
