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.

Maine Beer Company has produced excellent beers and this is another example of a really good beer. The four beers I have tried have had a similar taste. I think that people would be able to tell that all of these beers come from this company. Even though they have been different types of beer they have all been extremely good. This beer was a dark yellow color. Very flavorable.

Bottle purchased at brewery, date unclear. Poured into tulip.

Very hazy, orange appearance. Foamy, dense white head, clingy.

Lemon and clove on the aroma. Some banana and a nice earthiness, but the lemon notes dominate.

Taste was a big hit of lemon, some grassy notes I did not find in the smell, some nice earthiness. Not much of a grain presence initially, but the wheat and the rye assert themselves late in the taste and kind of accumulate during consumption. The bitterness is present but pretty mild.

Dry, almost champagne-like on the tongue. Nice tingle from the ample carbonation. The dryness is pleasant, almost cleansing.

Overall, a lot going on but a very subtle combination of sensations. Even with the complexity it is an easy drinker - would describe it as a laid back flavor profile with nothing jumping out as a dominant flavor. The earthiness is pleasant - not overdone. I can see this being a love/hate type of brew.

Bottled 7/16/13 so its only 10 days old. appearance is golden/orange and hazy with a thick bubbly white head leaving nice lace.
aroma is of citrus and spice, nothing groundbreaking but its right on.
taste is initial grapefruit followed by a blend of grain/cereal and saison yeast blended nicely with the spicy pepper character of rye. the grapefruit hop flavor is really strong on the initial sip but after subsequent sips it all balances out into a easy drinking beer that is rather quaffable. pretty damn good on a summer day

A: Pours a hazy golden yellow color with a fingers worth of head that fades to a cap within a minute or two

S: Saison yeast imparts some nice fruity esters and the hops provide a solid citrus note. Get a very light rye spiciness in the back, as well as some wheat

T: The rye comes through a bit more here, along with the saison yeast and citrusy hops. Spicy, fruity, and citrusy notes all meld together into the finish, which is quite bitter and wheaty

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Lightly chalky and dry from the start

O: A solid collaboration. Definitely a hoppy saison with a nice rye compliment. I feel like they hit the nail on the head with what they were going for on this one, as it definitely has the hoppiness of an APA to go along with the esters from the saison yeast
