look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

750ml bottle into a 25cl Duvel tulip. Purchased at the brewery in early June, shared at a tasting in December. From notes.

A: Hazy amber body with an inch of pillowy white froth that settles slowly and rockily and leaves light lace. Nice.

S: Richly grapey wine, smooth vanilla oak, tropical fruit, and pear. Rich, complex, and great.

T: Sweet grapes up front, with oak, pear, apple, and grassy floral dryness on the finish. Long, dry, oaky aftertaste. I love the rich fruitiness paired with a dry finish. Lovely.

M: Very lively, very soft, and creamy medium body. Great.

O: This was spectacularly good. Just pure deliciousness. I would buy this all the time if I could.

Cheers!

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Pour is hazed yellowish amber with a fairly tight white head. Nose doesn't offer much barrel, has some interesting farmhouse notes and a present lemon aroma. Taste has a hint of wood to it, a touch sweeter, lemony esters and a moderate farmhouse yeast. Medium body and a strong carbonation with lingering sweetness.

I had this on tap at Federal Taphouse in Harrisburg, served chilled in a tulip.

the color is golden with hazed clarity and white head. The smell has a light funk and white grape aroma with slight herbal accent with a yeast ester which is indicative of a saison. The feel has big tanginess and slight barnyard texture with peppery spice and light tannic element with mild sweetness and gentle bitterness with moderately high carbonation and dry finish.

The taste is great -citrus tanginess and light grape notes with slight herbal woodiness and dry malt backing with a yeast spice and dry mild wild yeast flavor in the finish. Overall I was extremely pleased to try this -nice barrel treatment a solid example of the style!

Serving type: on-tap

Batch #8. Served from a 750ml bottle into a Crooked Stave Tulip. Cellar temp. This was a real gusher folks.

Appearance- Cloudy orangeish with a two finger fluffy off-white head that left some nice lacing.

Smell- Brett straight up. Some oak, apples/pears, green grapes, some light lemon. Very floral and brett forward.

Taste- Apples, grapes, pears, brett, oak, floral hops, grass, yeasty funk. Very light tinge of heat to it.

Mouthfeel- Very carbonated, medium-full body, light heat at the back of the throat, light tartness.

Overall- Another great beer by Oxbow. These guys really can't go wrong. I wish they would bottle more and distribute to RI, because I miss them!
