Bottle - This one is interesting. Built on what could be a boring pale ale base, they’ve added bubblegum yeast, oatmeal sweetness, piney hops, and a dry finish. Nice! DiarmaidBHK (6187) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 28, 2016
Bottle from Appalachian Vintner. Pours orange and cloudy with a white head. Leaves a shitload of lacing in the glass. Huge floral hop notes on the nose along with that Belgian yeast thing. Nice floral hops on the tongue along with that fruity estery thing as well. Finished clean. Nice! DialSquare (5220) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 24, 2016

6/31/16. 350ml bottle. Poured clean a and a bit fizzy w a one finger head. This beer achieves what it set out to do. Clean light taste w a nice hop nose. Astringency smoothed out by the oats w the Belgian yeast giving a nicely spicey edge.

Large white head tops a muted gold-copper body. Clarity is high and retention is fairly strong.
A very oat-like character emerges in concert with black pepper, biscuit and baked baguette. I dont want to call the oat note glue-like; it’s not, but it’s very odd with a plasticy-powdered sugar character (in all liklihood this is yeast derived and nothing to do w the oats). Hops arent completely faded but its mostly pepper, earth and grass at this point, which is fine.
More of the odd powdered sugar (hint of beet maybe) in the mouth with a good deal of sweetness. The phenols and tight carbonation are the high point here though the beer is perfectly drinkable in spite of its various "oddities". Liked the saison more but Im still curious to try others from them.
On tap at Churchkey. Mefium golden with creamy head. Soft aroma of Belgian yeast and hay. Oats smooth out the taste and body, making for an exceptionally silky mouth feel. Nicely done Belgian ale.
