An Oxbow glass is filled from a chilled growler purchased yesterday at the brewery.

The beer is a translucent brownish/copper liquid with a small off-white head. About a finger of foam is on top of my glass when I pour vigorously, but it settles to skim after a moment or two.

The beer has a nice country/farmhouse aroma. It is more malt forward than some of Oxbow's other saisons, with hints of molasses. An earthiness from the yeast is also strong.

The taste has a good mixture of toffee malts and Belgian farmhouse yeast flavors. Hops are light and grassy.

The beer has a lighter body that seems to be in line with the style. Carbonation is low.

This is a really nice sessionable saison. It may be a touch darker and maltier than you are used to, but it is still quite enjoyable. It is worth seeking out if you find yourself here in Maine.

Poured at Oyster Co in Portland. This is a pleasant surprise as I am a little hung over so a 4 percent beer this morning is just right. An hour from now I will require 7 percent minimum. Normally not a huge farmhouse ale lover,but this was nice. Pours a nice copper color with an Oxbow glass - nice touch. Yeasty floral smell and the taste very much delivers. I like this a lot and still feel good. Since it is only 4 percent, can have two more
