Nice saison thats a bit heavy handed on the rye. Taste is very strong rye with nice peppery woody notes from the saison. Dry smooth finish.

750 bottle. It pours a dark orange/ruby color with a nice off white head. The aroma has lots of rye malt with a touch of caramel and some spicy hops. The flavor is rather savory with some toast and dense, grainy rye malt. Theres a bit of cherry, bread and lots of peppery hops toward the finish. Pretty dry and full bodied. This reminds me of one of those freshly baked multi grain breads. Pretty nice, especially paired with the right meal.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ Urban Family. Pours a watery caramel brown. Aroma is sweet malts and just a hint of hops. Taste is rich and complex: oatmeal, toffee, dark chocolate, tangy pineapple hops, lightly roasted coffee. The rye shows itself on the back in the dry and hoppy finish. I can’t remember this much flavor from such a thin beer. I was expecting a Saison, so this was a surprising treat.

750 ml bottle. Pours a very dark brown with full head. Aromas of malt, raisins and spice. Definite sharp woody flvor right up front, followed by sour dark fruit and vinous notes. Interesting.

Good beer. Has a unique taste. Dark amber pour with a gray head. Tropical fruit smell. Tastes good. Only downside is a weird aftertaste. It's a particular element. Had in bottle.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is a complex beer. Some sweetness in the aroma. Orange-brown. A bit fruity for a rye beer. Some strange grainiess from the rye. Good but odd.
