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.
