COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is our trip!!
Combination of pale and wheat malts, with the addition into the mash of a special variety of coffee beans from a local specialist roaster. European and American hops then get combined with some fantastic unique Australian ingredients, like wattle seeds added at the end of the boil. Our aim is to create a dry, clean and very sessionable Saison, with hints of coffee, citrus and spice..

Serving: from tap at Seattle International Beerfest.

Aroma: none detected.

Appearance: small, white initial head with no lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Clear, dark-amber body.

Taste: lightly sour initial flavor and lightly sour bourbon finish with average duration.

Palate: light body with watery texture and fizzy carbonation.

Overall: not too exciting.

Bottle. Huge frothy white head on a hazy orange body. Esthers, banana, orange zest, bready malts, light sour coffee, some citrus pulp. Light esthery sweetness, turns tart and lightly bitter. Medium body with very natural carbonation. Lightly dusty, a bit astringent finish. If Nomad had concentrated a bit more on the core qualities of this brew, it could have been _really_ good. It's still a good beer and a decent Saison, but a little all over the place.

Idiosynkrasie (8068) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - SEP 7, 2017
330ml bottle. Hazy, orangey, deep golden colour with average, frothy, slowly osteoporosing, moderately lacing, white head. Spicy, minimally floral, yeasty aroma, citrusy hoppy overtones, a touch of lavender, sage, cilantro. Taste is citrusy hoppy, floral-spicy, yeasty, a touch of lavender, cilantro, sage, bready malty basis, very cautious coffee overtones. Not really concrete...

Pours hazy orange gold with plenty of foam even after the beer settles down. $7.50 for the 500ml bottle.

I get coriander, fruit..orange, wattle with notes of pepper. Smells decently true to the style.

Taste seems on par. Until I notice a sprinkling of something not only bitter but a burnt kind of bitter that must be the coffee beans. The American hops are there as well and push this Saison towards the wrong direction but not quite. The Saison qualities remain. Thank goodness for that.

Fairly light bodied and good drinkability. I was surprised to see an Australian beer available in Casper. It’s a good one.

Absolutely cracking farmhouse Saison with lots of flavours going on and really well balanced. pairs perfectly with the fish dish.

Tognetta (953) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - MAY 19, 2017
Dourada translúcida, espuma amarelada de abundante formação e persistência a ponto de atrapalhar o servir.
Aroma nítido de especiarias como lavanda, anis e pimenta do reino, perfumada.
No paladar leve amargor e dulçor alaranjado.
Corpo levíssimo e alta carbonatação em excesso.

PanMarek (464) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 5, 2017
Cloudy, dark amber pour with thick, beige, rocky foam that lasts. Fruity and musty nose with some bready malt and distinct coffee notes in the end. Light body, lots of active fizz and a good, dry, vinous finish. The taste develops like the nose. It starts with a fruity, yeasty tang then smooths into the malt notes and ends with the pepper and coffee points. The yeast and the coffee flavors mingle well, especially as it warms. A slightly slicker texture develops, which works well with the flavors. The finish is still dry, but not austerely so. Long Trip is on the sweeter end of the saison spectrum. I enjoyed the coffee touches and would like to try it on tap to see if the flavor is stronger.

Interesting combination of styles and flavours with coffee the most noticeable. Refreshing with a dry finish. Nice classic, clean design ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours a light copper with a big head that recedes. Aroma is herbal, coffee, malt. High carbonation but not overly fizzy. Taste is quite unique - Im not too sure what wattle seeds taste like, but Im getting some menthol, old hops, herbs and though the flavour of the coffee doest come through too strong, I think it adds a little bit of bitterness to the beer. Overall a fairly interesting brew but not something Id have often.
