3.93/5 rDev -2.7%
Bottled 4.23.13; Consumed 6.19.14
A: 4.25 Quite hazy, orange/gold with a bit of red in there too. Pours a very large off-white head.
S: 4 At first there’s lots of yeast and grass with a bit of funk. Sweet malt and sage become very apparent after about 5 minutes in the glass bringing along some white pepper and other spicy aromas. There’s also a little citrus (mainly orange) in the background.
T: 3.75 The sage flavor is really strong (perhaps a bit too much) but it works pretty well with the malt and subtle, piney hops. There’s a lot of orange on the finish with a little lingering bitterness.
M: 4.25 The feel is very good. Not at all watery with good carbonation and a nice, dry finish.
O: 4 This is an interesting and enjoyable beer, but not very well balanced. I like the flavors and aromas going on, but the sage and other unique flavors overpower the farmhouse characteristics one would expect in this style of beer.

3.04/5 rDev -24.8%
a - it's a gusher! poured a two-fingers thick, bubbly off-white head into a tulip glass that left good lacing throughout. the body was a bright, bubbly golden color.
s - fruity and yeasty.
t - yeasty and fruity with green apples the dominant flavor.
m - effervescent, crisp and clean.
o - i don't think this one benefited much from age. way too carbonated as well.
