Had at the Jamison pourhouse.
Came out a rich cola color. A beige head sits on top. Nicely carb'd.
Aroma finds sutle roasted malts and hints of possibly minted hops.
Taste is similar to the nose with a nice roasted malt component and somthing minty or herbal. perhaps they're the hops.
Drinks alittle bitter and dry yet sweet too.
A nice beer thats well balanced between malts spices and hops.

Serving type: on-tap

4.1/5  rDev +25.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

From the 650 ml. bottle. Sampled on January 25, 2014

It has a gorgeous dark brown pour with hints of red up to the light and a humongous lingering fluffy, tan head.

This is an aroma like nothing else. Spices explode on my nose including clove, ginger, nutmeg, coriander, juniper, allspice, and peppers. There is also a vibrant dark fruit character.

Medium body.

The flavor is more toned down than the nose but those unique spices do break out on my palate along with something like turmeric. Mildly bitter at the en but the spices hold vigil over everything else.

Only Okay by previous raters? I feel it is better than OK.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

A: Huge thick tan head. Hold well and leaves alot of lacing down the side. Almost black in color. Unfortunately this is the best part about the beer.

S: Lots of yeast. Slight funk.

T: Typical saison with a bit of currant, which is slightly strange. Large head at times give a bit of an off putting taste to sips.

F: Highly carbonated and a thin bodied.

O: Disappointing considering what these two breweries typically produce. OK, but far from special.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

A thick, fat tan head rests on top of a heavy black brew. It's between a finger and a half and two fingers high and sturdy. It leaves strong, creamy lacing in some pretty heavy patching.
This beer is one of the more interesting ones I've ever smelled or tasted. It's got an extremely distinct note of mint basil with piney hops and a touch of herb. The malt shows a touch of roast underneath. The basil being part of it, there's a hint of something like kitchen spicing mingling with a certain earthy nature as well.
Friendship has a medium body, and it's creamy with a crisp nip. It fills the mouth a bit, with an even creamier feel developing with the strong carbonation, which also makes it crisper even as it flows very cleanly and softly.

Serving type: on-tap
