Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Brewed with a new friend, Kjetil Jikiun, founder and brewer at Nogne-O. Our aim was to brew a delicate, sessionable beer incorporating elements of the saison and hoppy American ale styles. We used a blend of our house ale and saison yeast strains. The result, an ale, golden in color, generously hopped, with background notes of saison funk accented by soft rye and wheat flavors.

Lumpy, eggshell white head. Plenty of lumpy lace on the glass. Dark yellow and cloudy.

Semi-fruity, reminds me of fermenting cider. Mild barnyard aroma in the background. For this style, it's an excellent, but mild aroma. Light yeast and some raw barley grain nose.

More pronounced raw grain on the initial taste. High hop bitterness, particularly for the style. Normal body with a heightened carbonation. There's a touch of sourness. Altogether, a very pleasant taste.

500 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Bottled 7/16/2013.

Appearance - Hazy orange. Medium white head. Thick chunky collar. Nice lacing.

Smell - Doughy malts. Belgian yeast and sweetness. Orangey hops. Alittle rye.

Taste - Orange hops and a grainy malt character. Less doughy, more of the spicy rye. Herbal and grassy in the finish. A little bitter in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. High carbonation.

Overall - I didn't notice the bottle date when I picked this up. It would appear Maine beers sit quite a while. I was just excited to try a Maine beer I hadn't had. Clean flavors, maybe lacking some excitement.

Bottled July 2013, opened August 2013.

A - Appropriate haze on a solid dark apricot body. Bright white head has nice retention and lace.

S - Super fresh hop cone nose, with a warm bready backbone. Lemongrass, sake, orange zest, bread dough.

T - Moss, rye grain, earthy hops, touch of lemon on in the center, and light plant stem and resin finish.

M - Medium frame. Maybe just a shade watery on the backend. Could use more carbonation.

O - Nice concept and decent execution.

A-Pours a very hazy, nearly milky yellow color. Big, tight white head. The head is thick and would rather stay in unison then deliver much lacing.

S-Sweet, fruity hops, prickly rye and Saison yeast. A bit barny as well. Not really intense but its definitely interesting to sniff. The pale maltiness is pleasant too.

T-The rye sets in first. Its a sturdy dosage. Then some vibrant hoppiness with a bit of exotic fruity hop flavors. The yeast gives me some natural barnyard elements. A bit estery. Solid complexity with a sneaky amount of bitterness.

M-Light and flavorful with good bitterness and a fresh aftertaste. Quite drinkable.

O/D-A cool Said on with the perfect addition of rye. I think pretty much anything Maine touches is great and this is a neat collaboration.

Draught @ Brewery: This one pours a hazy paler golden color. There was a bit of a white head on it. Some lacing. The aroma is good. Some rye, spices, citrus, earthy, wheat to name but a few. The taste is also good. Wheat, rye, grassy, yeasty, spicy. A touch bitter and dry to finish. Very Nice!

Bottle dated 071613, just under a month old.

A: Pours a super cloudy pale orange. Enormous and fluffy offwhite head. Head fades slowly with a great island of foam hanging around. Thin but constant spideweb lacework everywhere.

S: Decent citrus with quite a bit of rye malt. Lots of spicy black pepper.

T: Hint of citrus and pine. Spicy rye and black pepper dominates here, very strong through the finish. A little hop bitterness in the aftertaste, maybe pine and grapefruit? Still lots of spice lingering around and into the aftertaste.

M: Medium bodied, smooth.

O: A mildly hoppy "american style" saison. Quite spicy, clearly a decent amount of rye to go with the typical black pepper. A little one-note and simple but tasty and drinkable enough. Enough hops to make it a little unique but not enough to make it a belgian IPA of sorts.
