3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Huge cream-coloured head, leaving lace over unclear dark rusty-brown beer. Creamy nose, dark malts obvious (even Maillard it would seem), green leaves and markedly gassy. Bitterish-dry. Leafy flavour, and one not unlike oatmeal. Dry cocoa powder, faintly bready - oatmeal/ryebread? Feels quite spritzy, even fiery. Obviously well-carbonated. Not much body. Rustic? Lacking (a bit of) character, rather. Still, far from bad.
Bottle from McSrooges. Man, how cool is it that I can get this brewery in Knoxville? This beer is a mess. A sloppy, delicious mess. Unlike a lot of beers that a lot of different flavors this one lets every note can of pop up and play a role in the overall experience. Cherry, rye, maple, pepper, maybe some oak, as well. Nice stuff! melush (4718) - SPAIN - AUG 1, 2017

UPDATED: NOV 16, 2017 LEDER & SPICE GOTT ERHALT’S!!! A LOVER !!! :OOOO. Die dicke Jolle wartet im Keller.....auch hier werde ich berichten ;)... Fass. 15cl/3,25. BEER TEMPLE Amsterdam. Jetzt :)...Es duftet spülspicy, sieht wundervoll aus, mit seiner rötlichen Bräune und der cremigen Haube. Das Mouthfeel ist sanft und der Roggen hinterlässt nicht kratzig, aber durchaus dominant holzig, seine Spuren. Ein Hauch Waldhonig ist ständiger Begleiter und laubiger Brown Hop Ale Flair sowieso. Saison??!!?? Relativ wenig ;)....0,75l/11,15€. DeMolen Shop. Holland. koleminer20 (3976) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - FEB 12, 2017
750 mL bottle shared by ebone1988. The pour is a darker brown/light black with a thicker light khaki head and a lot of soapy lace as it falls down to a thick collar and film. The aroma is definitely heavy on spicy rye. There is a bit of chocolate malt and a light roastiness. It’s got a little bit of a Porter thing going on that I’m definitely not a fan of. The flavor is much of the same. There is a spicy rye and a chocolate malt that drinks like a porter for sure. There is a viscosity and a bitterness about it that isn’t terrible. The mouth feel is robust and brightly carbonated with a bitter roast and spicy rye aftertaste. This isn’t that good at all. Ugh. ebone1988 (2122) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - FEB 12, 2017
Bottle shared with koleminer20. Aroma is rye, spices, slight tart, roasted malt, weird. Appearance is dark brown red, light brown head, would be clear if it wasn’t so dark. Taste is rye, spices, roasted malt, slight cocoa, definitely no saison qualities. Mouthfeel is medium body, light carbonation, roasted malt and rye aftertaste. Overall, just weird. It’s a porter with rye, it says it’s a saison on the label. bartlebier (4123) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - DEC 1, 2016
75cl, 2016 vintage - Nov2016, B&Co. - An odd yet workable recipe yielding a tasty mix of autumnal Belgian dubbel (ripe orchard fruit, compote), a musty saison leafiness and some rye spice with hefty body supporting it. Earthy, "organic" and subtle use of earthy EU-pedigree hops. Flourishes of iron, liquorice, quince peel, caramel to keep it interesting. Remarkably demure and mature for a US saison. Could pass off as a new, Fantome-inspired, slightly polished dark saison brewed on Belgian soil.
