In short: A semi-barnyard and semi-dry fruity Saison. Slighlty below average for the stylejcwattsrugger (12420) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - JUN 24, 2011
How: Growler shared during the RBSG 2011 bus-trip
The look: Cloudy golden body topped by a small off-white head with medium retention
In long: Nose is moderately barnyard with also standard belgian blonde ale yeast fruity esters. Taste is fresh cereals, some hay, cobweb, flowery spiciness, some tropical fruits, dough. Creamy mouthfeel. Not really dry, not really sweet, just very plain cereals. I love Saisons and tend to overrate them but this one didn’t excite me. It was just ok as a Saison. But although this particular beer wasn’t all that good, the RBSG bus trip itself was quite extreme and we drank a ton of beer. But let me assure you that there was nothing inappropriate about my behavior during that bus trip. It is my age that was very inappropriate for my behavior.

On draft at brewpub. Poured a clear brown with red highlights and a thin slightly off white head. Much darker than saisons i am used to. Smells of floral hops, spices, fruity malts, and yeast. Taste follows the aroma and is smooth and well balanced with a mild sour note.
