#BOTG 114!

Poured from bottle into Jester King Farmhouse glass. Pours a super murky orange/brown color. Looks like Orange Juice gone bad. Just so cloudy, and looks like it has the thickness of a fruit juice. Smell- yeasty bread, nice sweet fruit flavors like peach, banana, strawberry. Very subtle campfire smoke. Very interesting, smells awesome. Taste- first, this has a super creamy, thick mouthfeel. Tight carbonation. I get some really nice sweet fruit flavors, peach again, and a very subtle smoke flavors on the end. This is a really unique take on a saison, and I love the fact that it has really factored "Texas" into it with the fruit woods they chose and the smoke factor. Great stuff.

Pours out a muddy and hazy burnt orange color topped off with a nice thick white head, roughly one and a half fingers thick. The head slowly thins and covers the ale in a light layer of bubbles with some decent lacing. Light coriander, spices, mild citrus fruit and wheat aromas come through. The spices and yeast present up front and the citrus fruit flavors become active as it hits the side of your mouth. Light fruity flavors, mostly citrus and lemon rind. It has a medium mouth feel, but is crisp on the tongue and goes down pretty smooth.

3.2/5  rDev -12.6%

A: Pours a murky, dirty looking pale orange color. At first a massive white head forms, but recedes in a second to a ring. Not much lace is left behind.
S: Light Belgian yeast, wood, spice, phenols. Enjoyable, if not particularly engaging.
T: Spicy and phenolic yeast up front. Light fruity flavors, mostly citrus and lemon rind.
M/D: A medium body that is very effervescent. Crisp and dry, but way to thin for my liking. Not hard to drink. I will finish the bottle, but not something I will come back to often.

I found this pretty standard. Especially considering all that went into making this. Like most of Ranger Creeks latest offerings, pretty ho hum.
