TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - MAY 12, 2012
Tap at TND. Pours a hazy yellow/pale golden with a medium creamy white head that left great lacing. Aroma of tropical fruits, lemon, spicy saison yeast notes, maybe some Brett brux? Nose reminds me a bit of Orval. Flavor of the same tropical fruits and spicy saison yeast notes. Really nice and dry, decent American hop profile along with the bitterness. Also seem to be picking up some Brett character in the flavor. Super dry, full of hoppy and saison character. A cross between and saison and a hoppy "west coast" style pale ale. Makes me even more excited about tired hands opening up later this month.

simont1 (517) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 25, 2015
Aroma of ’farts’, barnyard, a bit woody, mango, passionfruit with an earthy kick to it. Taste is lots of barnyard funk, very earthy, with a citric acid like fruitiness. This was quite nice.

Ernest (7025) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 22, 2015
Draft (Monk’s Cafe). Virtually no head. Body is cloudy light yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain, corn starch), lightly yeasty (basement), with notes of lemon-lime juice, sour apple. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Another disappointment from a new-to-me brewery. Just a generic sour ale rather than a saison and seems like fruit juice or lemonade has been added. Pretty dopey.
