Crowler from the taproom; brought by Liz. Pours brassy gold with a white head. Aroma is earthy with a coriander note. Med body + a bit. The high ABV seems to help in many ways. Flavor is yeast, slightly bready malt and arguably coriander. Maybe a bit of citrus. This would likely be rather weak sauce were it not for the ABV. Fairly dry and a nice earthy/herby bitter. There’s a bit after each quaff that reminds of high ABV mass lagers, but it can be removed with another quaff. This is pretty nice, tho maybe not exactly a saison! Imperial Saison?

Pours a cloudy golden straw with a frothy white head. Aroma of lemon, pepper, citrus peel and some light floral esthers. Taste is a complex but smooth and easy to drink mix of citrus, pepper, lemon zest, straw, light farmhouse and overall just easy to drink and pleasing!

On tap at the Torpedo Room. It pours a clear golden orange color. The aroma is dusty and kind of farty with touches of herbs and fruit. Funky, but not necessarily in a good way. The flavor is spicy and fruity, full bodied with a dry finish. Weird aroma, but not bad flavor.
