look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Served on-tap at Jester King on 2/1/14 into a small Jester King wine glass. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance: Opaque golden body, a small and loose head that persists quite a while.

Smell: Wow. That smells like blue cheese. Blue. Cheese. Can't say I was expecting that. If I had to be more specific, I'd say Roquefort Papillon, because of the fruity (raspberry?) hints that are present as well.

Taste: Yep, that nose didn't lie. This is blue cheese in beer form. Tart in a lemon juice kind of way, but not mouth-puckering. A relatively prominent maltiness is apparent too. Delicious, if you like blue cheese (I love it).

Mouthfeel: On the flatter side of carbonated, but enough for the beer. This sticks around in the mouth for a while.

Overall: Really unique, like so much that Jester King does, and I'm glad I tried it. I imagine I'll continue to seek it out, I really enjoyed the experience, as strange as it was.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Served from a 750 bottle into a stemmed Hill Farmstead tulip. Cellar temp.

Appearance- Crystal clear golden color with quick foamy white head that left some nice lacing.

Smell-Funky yeast, lemons, green grapes, grass, light oak. Real nice and earthy.

Taste-Lemons, light cider vinegar, green apples, funked up oak, vanilla, list goes on and on. Nicely tart and funky with fruit forward flavors and a nice bitterness at the end. Reminds me of a white wine.

Mouthfeel- Pretty well carbonated with a super light body. Very refreshing and easy to drink.

Overall-Real nice oak aged tart saison. Super light which is great and not too yeasty. Greast saison.

Serving type: bottle
