Springhouse is an aged Belgium Saison (Farmhouse Ale). 8% ABV, it pours gold-amber, is well carbonated but has a small to non existent head, and has a sweet fruity aroma with apples, green grapes and apricots the dominant taste. This is an interesting ale that deserves your attention.

Very good. Nicely balanced. Some bubble or hay here. Pours golden with good head and lacing. Finishes with light sourness and some tang. Tap at DC Beer festival.

Bottle shared by jayhawk73. Thanks Jeff! The beer is orange with a towering white head. The aroma brings some tart citrus, wheat, lemongrass, mild funk, sweet malt. Decent flavor. Crisp and zesty carbonation. Mildly sweet with light bittering hops in the finish. This was ok, but not what I seek in a beer of this ilk.

Picked this up as part of a set at the brewery in Williamsburg. The color is golden straw with a nice foamy head that laces nicely. Funky aroma as one would expect with this style. Taste is bitter with some citrus notes. Nice and effervescent. I like this brew. Nice drinkability.

Bottle. Given the name and rating date, perhaps I rot-boxed this one a little too long, but here goes. Pours hazy orange amber with a medium yellow-white head, creamy with nice lacing. So far, so good. Aroma is grainy, honey, grass, pepper, herbs. Flavor is spicy, pepper, medium sweet, medium zesty bitter, lemon zest everywhere, dust, herbs. Medium body and a bit hot. Meh.

Bottle. Crystal clear golden color, white edge head. Aroma of light fruit, hay. Taste is light lemon. Lacks the barnhouse funkiness that I like is most saisons.

Hazy copper in the glass. Nice fruity aroma with a touch of cardboard. A bit sweet for a saison, very nice... Some fruity flavors. Thanks to BZK...

December 2011. 22. oz bottle. Cloudy golden color with a white head. Aromas of lemon, malt, wheat and yeast. Acidic and hoppy finish. Good example of the style.
