Cloudy amber color, white head, solid lacing. Aroma of funky caramel. Taste is similar. Nice. Reynolds314 (3477) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 25, 2013
Rich malty saison with a bit of caramel and nutty sweetness on the back end of this classic saison with nice sweetness and german noble hops. Marheb (6193) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 23, 2013
Pain grillé, courants poivrés sur une bière au goût franc et à la finale sèche. Encore agréablement surpris par Oxbow. Ernesto987 (6050) - Arizona, USA - SEP 23, 2013
growler thanks to Matt, THANKS MATT! Light and crisp, probably one of the first malty saisons I can get along with. Is caramelly without the sweetness that does the trick, light saison flavors and a good hop bite for a finish bottleforager (3208) - Gray, Maine, USA - AUG 28, 2013
Pours a glowing amber color with a finger of sticky eggshell foam. Nose is rustic grain, touches of apple pie, crusty bread and spicy funky yeast esters. The palate follows the nose with a big malty backbone that has traces of honeyed sweetness, autumn fruit, doughy bread and a peppery grassy finish to clean up the palate. Nice beer.

Draft. Cloudy amber body with medium beige head. Aroma is medium sweet, straw, grapefruit, some white pepper, light funk. Taste is medium sweet, straw/grapefruit, light funk, white pepper. Light-medium body, somewhat dry. MartinT (10036) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 9, 2013
My Bottom Line:CamdenD (1204) - Madrid, SPAIN - AUG 9, 2013
Cloves and bubblegum are greeted by straight earthy yeast and spicy hop resins in this flavorful but unpolished brew.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the murky amber.
-The flavor profile needs some smoothening out.
-The spicy character is compelling.
-Don’t know if I got the bottom of the keg, but this one was smothered in yeast (and yeast character).
On tap at Novare Res.
A more bracingly bitter version of their FPA. The Tettnang hops give this bitterness and an almost pils-type quality to the beer. The aroma is crisp and more typical of a pils than their FPA. This goes very well in the summer.
