vyvvy (6122) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - DEC 27, 2012
This was quite the interesting and different beer. Pours dark brown with a crimson hue and has a smallish tan head. The aroma is quite nutty with chocolate, mild oak, saison-ish yeast, caramel / toffee and some breadiness - really nice. It has a light body that is fairly smooth with a modest amount of carbonation. The flavor starts off with spiciness, earthiness, funk yeast, dry breadiness, oak, and smooth toasty malt. The finish has dry earthy herbal elements added. There is some anise as it warms along with some sourness. Really nice.

On tap at brewery. Pours dark brown with fizzy, fast fading tan head. Aroma is acidic with a touch of funk and subtle toasted grain, very subtle hint of oak. Flavor is much the same as well as dry and tart. Light body with fizzy carbonation. Overall, tasty, fun brew!
