3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ the Brewpub-Copper/amber pour w/a moderate head. Malty aroma. Some maly, a little yeast, some grain, certainly didnít taste all that other stuff they talked about! It was ok, nothing more. Not up to what I usually expect from these folks

On tap at Brewpub. Pours a deep amber color with a two finger light tan head and a touch of lacing. The aroma has a honey sweetness over a mild spiciness. The taste has caramel maltiness, honey, Belgian yeast spiciness and a slight hop bitterness that carries through the finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation and crisp flavors thoughout.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
It pours a ruby red color, thin white head is formed. The aroma is pretty strong here like I said. Very sweet aroma from the honey with underlying spiciness and pepper. Caramel malt backbone. I will say this about this brew, Iíve never tasted a saison like this. So many ingredients here but in the end I donít think they really meld together really well. While the fiance and I thought this was better than the first beer we had, it was a bit funky, weird, and just didnít work well. The taste is spicy from the pepper and the rye. Sweetness from the candi syrup, molasses, and honey. Mouthfeel was medium bodied with a dry finish. Iíll give this beer this, itís unique. Just to much going on and it doesnít mesh really well together.
