12oz bottle also sampled at the brewery. Pours a dark golden very hazy color with a big white foamy head. Nose is peppery, ligh coriander, some other spices as well, and some light hops and lemon. Taste is a very subtle but welcome sourness, a bit of funk yeast here and there and a nice fizzy finish and a clean palate.

12 ounce bottle, handlabeled by Ron himself: Poured a cloudy yeasty golden hue with a small but tight frothy head and good lace. The aroma has notes of pink grapefruit, tangerine, noble hops, flowery and funky yeast esters, bready malts, and a hint of pepper and wood. The taste is quite interesting with a bold initial hop bitterness adding to the acidic and woody barrel character before leading onward with a soft grainy and yeast finish. The aftertaste is a twangy thought of the citric hop nature showing the dry hopping is still around even after some time in oak. The feel is a bit weak but then again it is intended to be a Farmhouse Ale and a session biere. Quite a different sort, again not easily classified into a style genre. One of those new bred hoppy Saisons.

UPDATED: FEB 3, 2006 Rerate: I love the intermingling of the yeastiness and the hops and the pilsner malt that (as my good friend says) cushions the beer. Fascinating. I take back my comment about a watery hole in the palate as that clearly was just the first bottle. The slightest sourness you could imagine. Upped the flavor and overall .1each. Original: Entered as a Saison, as Ron has said explicitly that this beer is modeled after Thiriez XXtra. And boy is it! The word that springs to mind here is pillowy softness; it’s not that the hops aren’t assertive, as they most certainly are, it’s just that the whole concoction is smooth and the flavors are so well-melded. The hops are flowery and smelling like pencil shavings, with a delectable subtle acidity. Straw and biscuit flavors, and the whole thing gets better with the yeast pour; softer, more expansive. A slight hole in the palate is detected (wateriness) midway through the flavors. Delicious, hits the intended mark, and scores better because of the value for your dollar. Having only had 1 bottle and a half of this beer, I cannot wait to drink it in large quantities, all spring and summer long.
