3.16/5 rDev -6%
look: 2.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 3.5
Source/Serving: 12oz bottle
S: Moderate mossy/herbal/floral hops, clean horse stable mixed with brass, ginger and lemon verbena, pepper. Light oaky vanilla. Straight-up lightly spiced Brett saison character. Dank but lively and upbeat.
T: Balanced up front with nice dryness, a hint of acidity, good carbonation/carbonic acid, and a lively crispness without being sweet. Understated but well done and decently complex. Ginger is moderate, but a touch too much for me. Has a nice dank, dark Brett edge thats surprisingly musty but doesn't overwhelm and is heavy on the funk. Lemon verbena, citrus with a herbal/dark edge. Somewhat heavy for a saison even though carbonation is high. Very hard to describe which is perfect for a saison. Finish is perfectly dry with a pleasant mix of funk, herb, lemon/pepper, ginger and spice.
Notes: Understated but near perfection if it weren't for the heavy hand with the ginger. I say this even though I'm a bit biased against the farm-to-bottle marketing campaign of Almanac.

On tap at Falling Rock in Denver. Pours hazy yellow with lots of fluffy head. Aroma of yeast funk, sweet honey, some light citrus and pear, a bit of spice, and more funkiness. Flavor follows the smell very closely with some additional sweetness and body, some nice finishing spice and light grassy hop character. Body is light to light medium with medium plus carbonation. Goes down pretty easy. Nothing special but worth drinking on a nice summer day.

On tap at Hops and Pie. Orange color, alright head. Interesting aroma that has only the mildest notes of honey but then something else I can;t place. Not bad. Flavor was yeasty with a bit of honey wheat bread aspect to it. very drinkable and I liked it better than the farmer's reserve blackberry.
