Interesting beer, very nice.
Chestnut color, small tan head.
Smoky malt, some caramel. A bit of spice.
Smoky caramel taste. Pumpkin pie spice. The flavors went well together.
Very malty, not like any Oktoberfest that I have tried.
A lot of fun to drink.

3.38/5 rDev -12.7%
A - Poured crystal clear with a foamy white head.
S - Smelled of smoked grain and farmhouse funk.
T - Again with the smoke and just a hint of the funk. Ended with a sharp bitter bite.
M - Light body and crisp carbonation
D - Something about the slight saison funk and the slight smoky grain threw me off. Not my favorite Oxbow.

I picked up a growler of this beer yesterday afternoon. It was in a cooler on the ride home from Newcastle, and in my fridge since then. I've poured into an Oxbow tulip.
The beer is hazy and has orange and brown coloring. The head is almost non-existent, just a thin layer of tan foam that completely disappears after a bit. Maybe I'm serving it too cold?
It has the aroma of a malty saison; I can smell funky farmhouse yeast, but also sweet malts reminiscent of toffee. It comes across as a good mixture of a German lager and a farmhouse ale.
The beer has a good flavor. There are plenty of malts, both light sweet ones I'd expect to find in a saison, and also some deeper, darker ones more often found in a oktoberfest beer. There is a some light floral hopping and a good amount of yeast. It provides a slight bite of pepper just after a swallow. Toffee and caramel malts linger on.
The beer has a medium body and enough carbonation to provide some sharpness on my tongue.
This is another enjoyable Oxbow beer. I don't like it as much as some of their other offerings, but it is well made and an interesting combination of styles.
