On tap for Philly Beer Week. Served on tap in a goblet/wine glass.

Pours a honey-orange with no head or lacing of any kind. Could have mistaken it for liquor. Nice aromas of barnyard and funk; I'm looking forward to it. The taste doesn't match the nose at all. Bitter like an IPA with just a touch of funk. Mouthfeel is bright and bubbly like a saison, but that just makes the IPA flavor more confusing.

This is a textbook case for those who feel hops have gotten out of hand.

A-Pours a hazy, rich golden color. Head is well put together. Fluffy and long lasting. Light lacing.

S- Immediately hit with strong, spicy yeast aromas. Heavy on the Belgian spice character. Light sweetness. Modest hoppiness.

T-Spicy yeast character is equally as strong once I begin to drink. The yeast is dynamic and it do,images the flavor. Some citrus hops and doughy malt.

M-Has a creamy feel. Mostly dry. Alcohol well hidden. Well carbonated.

O-Was pretty excited to try this one. A slight disappointment. Well made but it's a too heavy on the yeast.

A - Pours a golden color with a half a finger of head.

S - Hoppy with a hint of funk and belgian yeast.

T - Hops and farmhouse funk with some grassy tones.

M - Medium bodies with a crisp carbonation and dry finish.

O - I enjoy Oxbow quite a bit. This is a solid beer, but I have enjoyed their freestlyes more than their regular beers.
