Draft at brewery. Light malty, nutty aroma. Medium brown with small ring of head. Taste dries out, wooden, nuts. Light bodied builds to crescendo rapidly, and then...Mild lingering palate. nuplastikk (6476) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 28, 2016
Tap at Right Proper. Deep thick opaque brown malt. Underlying faint saison-esque yeast tones. Not really a fan of the aroma, light baker’s chocolate. Ruby amber malt touches. Nutty mildness. Medium bodied session brown saison? jackl (8448) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 27, 2015

Aroma: medium intense, nice rounded malts. Hops tad subdued. This one is more malt sided…
Top: medium white cap.
Base: hazy amber
Palate : medium-thin bodied. Dry, with average finish. Good drinkability.
Taste: First things first. Its far too dry to be Alt. malty character was more evident in aroma. Taste presented to me as more of a saison/de garde in style with hits of Alt.
other notes interesting hybrid, yet I wished to see more Alt in Alt.
A nice beer on a late summer day outside. Bought a few on draft during brunch, very mild and pleasant flavor. mike5326 (1786) - virginia beach, Virginia, USA - AUG 13, 2015
Poured from a tap. Rich mahogany color, medium off white head. Medium malt fragrance. Medium body with a syrup malt and a light hops undertone seen in the finish.

A good looking but unusual altbier with a Belgian (Saigon yeast) twist.
Slightly funky with a good, but relatively dark roasted, malt base.
Growler from the source. GenDV138 (7764) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - MAR 17, 2015
Mahogany body with hints of burgundy and crimson. The beer hisses as the nearly two inches of sea foam head gradually dissipates. Dark fruits, spice, German sweet breads. Bready and yeasty, slightly sweet, finishing dry. Mild bitterness. Solid.
