Poured on-tap at the Thirsty Pig in Portland. Served in a snifter, the beer is a hazy, orange-brown coloring with a frothy, foamy white head. Nose of floral highlights, with a tangy sweet caramel backbone. Flavors of floral and spice all over the palate, light and slightly sour. Biscuit and clove, jasmine and oregano, all very balanced. Very herbal throughout. Light and crisp bodied while you drink, with a tangy sweet and spicy aftertaste. Clean, fruity, farmhouse finish. Very clean and very tasty.

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.

mason jar at duckfat... surrounded by oxbow art, including a space cowboy

Amber, clear, inch of off white head that dissipates into a thin halo.
Sweet nose, yeast, slight lemon peel and hops.
Taste is upfront yeast, malt, followed by a slightly bitter finish, definitely lots of character.
The mouthfeel is medium bodied, effervescent, slightly dry, yeasty finish, more alcohol bite than expected.
The beer is another tasty oxbow offering, but not my favorite.

Growler picked up my JLindros and myself for our beer dinner. Space Cowboy...awwww yah!

A - Poured into a pint glass a barely hazy golden honey orange hue with a light, fizzy one finger head that fades quickly to leave a very, very thin halo.

S - Nose is nice with typical farmhouse notes and nice floral hops. Some sweet malts, gentle citrus and yeasty esters. Quite enjoyable and inviting.

T - Taste is solid with light malty sweetness and subtly funked barnyard notes but clearly farmhouse. Pleasant light lemon/citrus as well as light spices as well. Slightly earthy too.

M - Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated with a good dry finish. Nice lingering spices too.

O - Overall pretty nice. Nice malts, some solid farmhouse funk, all solid and subtle. Not too sweet, nicely floral. Super drinkable beer from Oxbow.
