Poured from tap to glass. Hazy golden hue with creamy white head that dissipated. Aroma is due, roast, wood, spicy hop. Mouthfeel is great with a light body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry with a spicy following and charred finish. Overall this is a very interesting brew! GenDV138 (7964) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - OCT 28, 2014
4 oz draft pour at ChurchKey. Hazy golden brown with off-white head. Aromas of pine, floral notes, rye, spices. Tastes of floral notes, pine, rye, toast. Medium body with a dry finish. Tastes more like a toasty rye pale ale than saison to me. solidfunk (9797) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - OCT 27, 2014
Excellent stuff. Comes together very well. Light note of bretta. Golden hazy pour. A touch too much barrel. Finishes a little bitter, some sourness from citrus. Tap at Churchkey. jackl (8597) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 25, 2014
Keg @ CK. amber pour with a tight white head. Nose is interestingly grainy. Rye, quite bready. Baker’s oven. lemon peel and chamomile tea. Taste of honeyed chmomile. Peppery rye. Burnt pizza crust. Super dry on the finish. Earthy flower bed. Very interesting. Travlr (26948) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - OCT 23, 2014
Draft at Churchkey’s 5th anniversary, courtesy of staff, thanks! Hazy golden color, huge fluffy head with good retention and solid lacing. Aroma is like a huge duststorm during the dustbowl, complex, earthy, many layers with black pepper, bright summer fruit, whore’s perfume, straw. Taste has dusty pepper and barnyard hay. Delicious.

Draft. Aroma is dirt, toast, tobacco, smoke, burnt coffee. Very bitter across the palate with a nice stale cigar ash finish. Oh and by nice I mean awful. I was at a table of 4 people and no one could take more than a sip. hopwine (678) - brooklynzzzzz, New York, USA - SEP 23, 2014
Such a unique, odd beer. The roasted rye dominates and gives it this very intense cereal grain character kind of resembling cheerios. Really interesting and out there... ericdevin (988) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - SEP 22, 2014
Draft at Upright, Portland. Pours a slightly hazy golden straw, little bit of head. Aroma lovely, crisp and rye-forward, loving the yeast strain, nice amount of spice. Body lively and arch, finish complex and crisp. A winner before it hits the barrels, very excited to see where this goes. douglas88 (9836) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 22, 2014
On tap at the brewery. Pours a copper orange color with a medium white head. A huge rye spicy and grainy nose, paper, dust. The flavor is like tasting a scarecrow, big dry spicy rye, earthy grain shells, some toast, perfume, a bit of citrus. Solid. Unique. mcberko (20286) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 21, 2014
On tap at Upright, pours a hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma is fantastic, with complex yeasts and various spices. Flavour is complex, with toasted rye, complex yeast, and roast. Deep complexity and very elegant. Excellent stuff.
