Cask @ Surly. Amber pour with a creamy head. Not loving Surly’s choice to use a sparkler. Nose suggests all kinds of fruity esters. Baked apple and marmalade. Saison yeast. A bit of lemon. Flavor has some moderately spicy yeasty character. Sweet dough and honey. Pretty dry mineral finish. Medium body, a bit sticky. OK. 21iceman40 (1735) - Grafton, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 11, 2015
I thought I was getting a session brown ale.......boy was I wrong. The funk was present immediately. It wasn’t bad but it wasn’t amazing. It almost ended up being a session funky ale. edgallow (4211) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 17, 2015
16 oz can pours golden with a thin white head. Aroma of yeast, fruit and some citrus. Taste is yeast , malts and spice. ryanfolty (2553) - Bourbon County, Minnesota, USA - DEC 20, 2013
November 20, 2013 on cask at Red Cow. Semi-opaque orange pour with no head. Aroma was fruity, spice and wood. Taste was consistent with the aroma, but the fruit and wood are dominant with a bit of spice and dryness in the finish. Smooth, but a bit thin. This was good though the flavors seem more mellow. I liked the Applewood variant better as it enhanced the flavors. XmnwildX12 (2079) - Farmington, Minnesota, USA - DEC 20, 2013
On tap at Red Cow, pours a hazy golden orange with a thin head and spotty lacing. Aroma is some Belgian yeast and some fruit pulp. Taste is similar, little bit of ash/woodiness in it. Was better than expected.

Cask. Hazy orange that turns to yellow towards th bottom of the glass. Small pillow of foam rests atop too. Aroma is filled with citrus. No real campfire aspects. Taste is citrus, usual yeastiness, and a hint of ash. Smooth and creamy texture. I wish there was less hop presence and more aspects of the woods and campfire. Still solid none the less. arminjewell (9669) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - NOV 26, 2010
Pours hazy orange/yellow with white head at Darkness Day 2010. Aroma of spicy yeast, with notes of lemon, wood, and apricot. Taste is sweet lemon, ash, and apricot with a note of spice, finishes fairly sweet and a touch dry. The way this brew melds together is remarkable, drinkable and highly complex.

Had on cask while waiting for Darkness at DDay 2010. Little to no head. Super smooth. Some of the wood flavor coming through, but not much. The wood serves more to mellow some of the flavors...Actually prefer this to the regular stuff. bobbypaulson (217) - Fergus Falls, Minnesota, USA - OCT 25, 2010
had at darkness day while waiting in line to get y bottles. No head smell or citrus. Taste was lemon and honey with raelly no after taste. It was a good beer, but I don’t know if I’d get it again. portableparty (2350) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - OCT 23, 2010
Glass at Darkness days. Pour is bright orange and murky with no head. Big lemon and honey and musty scents. Taste is lemon citrus and musty flavor. Beer was calm and slick with a chaulky finish. Tasty and interesting.
