3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Super bomber into a large Belgian. Great voluptuous head, cloud white, inch and a half, solid lacing all over. Pours a hazed sunflower orange. Cloudy with hay in the background. Aroma of spicy orange pepper. Sour Mellon, white grapes, hops. Taste of the same, dry grapes and wine, smooth tart finish with bitter melon prevalent. Sour green apples punch in, say hello, then peel their skin and leave it. Pepper is omitted throughout. Crab apple feel as well. Alright.

Bottle shared by hammerslammer - thanks again, Matt! Pours a hazed pale yellow gold with a medium foamy white head that laces the glass. Notes of grass, celery, herbs, straw, lemon, pale malts, and dry grains. Not much farmhouse funk to it. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a bitter, earthy, floral mouthfeel. Good, but very straightforward in comparison to the others Iíve had from here. Not a bad thing, but donít expect any explosiveness here.

When I think saison, I think this. They hit the style spot on. Slight funk from the farmhouse yeast, peppery, wheaty, bubbly carbonation, and some nice hop bitterness. Faded gold color with huge fluffy head. Solid.

A very hoppy saison. Very good, but mightíve been even better with a bit less bitterness. Funk aftertaste, mild tartness. Plenty of yeasty spice notes. Resin, spruce hops.

On tap at Lord Hobo. Cloudy yellow pour with a white head. Wheat and floral aromas. Florally notes with the creamy smooth wheat characteristics. Mild spices. Might not actually be a wheat beer, but thatís the best way I can describe the mouthfeel. Which is good by the way. Nice body.

>> Came in here for a pint, no dice. Growler filling station only. Sparkling gold pour, great foam, great lace. Sweet banana and pear esters. Taste is clean, light pear, banana, chalk. Palate is fluffy, dusty, malty, clean pale malt grist. Love that.
