4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 06/02/2014. Pours hazy straw gold, small dense foamy head rests to a fine haze on the surface, thin ring of lacing around the glass. Aroma is pale straw malts, yeast and mild grassy hops, overlying apple fruitiness, mildly tart, vanilla, vinous character,farmhouse finish. Taste is softly tart fruitiness- apple, white grapes, peach , some yogurt, moderate acidity, pronounce vinous notes, vanilla, oak, woody finish. Light body. Really a nice surprise, reminiscent of some HF beers but not as refined- solid barrel-aged saison.

Hazy orange color with red head. Apple skin aroma, oranges, some cinnamon. Taste is Bratapfel, more apple skin, more cinnamon, but also some yoghurt body. It has some sort of a christmas feel to it. The finish is with lots of minerals. Low carbonation. Oily mouthfeel. Good!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle. Golden pour. This is a unique beer that is dry but spicy, with some earthy apple skin notes and fairly heavy cloviness making it a good combo in a saison.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 75cl, at Baran. A clear, dark golden beer with a two-finger sized off-white head. Curtains occur. A bit weak on the nose, but pleasant, with tropical fruits, a faint pepper and citrus touch, as well as a generic fruityness and a malty hint. Some yeast in the flavor, with more or less the same elements as in the flavor. More evident though, and thereís also a pleasant bitterness. Pleasant carbonation, medium body. Fruity, lightly funky towards the finish. Refreshing and tasteful. 140906

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, shared by me in a location remote to my dining room.
Pours a hazy blonde with a good head and decent lacing on the glass.
The aroma is dirty laundry with some earthy funk, some light furriness and yeastiness with a nice floral character.
The flavor is tart and yeasty. The beer is basically dry with some fruity apple character, but more particularly focused on the more bitter apple rind. Itís got some floral flavor and bitterness to it as well.
Pretty cool beer I guess.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Good holy god, this was phenomenal. Iíve had it in the bottle, Iíve had it on tap, but just last night at Crescent and Vine in Astoria, Queens, NY, it was magical. Perhaps it rested in the keg for just the perfect amount of time to fully reach itís acme. Just the right amount of (mild) wild funk, yet fully tamed by the complex acidic fruit flavors and backbone of malted grains. You only need one glass of a beer like this, and itís emblazoned upon your mental palate forever.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: this beer pours pretty much all head, in fact it overflows as soon as you pop the too, the white head settles pretty quick but remains dense, the beer is a clear average golden color
Aroma: apple, barnyard funk, wild, some bitterness, lemon possibly
Taste: very sour, strong tartness, some apple, lemon lime
Palate: lively carbonation, sour bitter aftertaste, leaves mouth dry
Overall: a very delicious beer, very sour for a saison, tart as well, smells good, has a very nice wildness to it, still very refreshing and sessionable
