Saddlebock Arkansas Farmhouse Ale

A: Golden/Amberish color, with white head.
S: Fruity
T: Lots of flavor. Fruity but unique. Alcohol finish but considering the high abv it is not overwhelming.

Overall: Really enjoyed this beer. Tried it at the brewery and ended up ordering another one later that night at dinner.

Poured from a 22 oz. bomber into a snifter.

A – About 1 cm of off-white head, beautiful amber/orange color, translucent and lets the light through, highlighting the color. A beautiful looking beer.

S – Smells very sweet, a lot of fruit on the nose. Tangerines, maybe some pineapple. Some alcohol burn.

T – Cloyingly, overwhelmingly sweet. Hard to taste much besides sugar, but there is some tangerine or orange, some other citrus.

M – The sugar sticks around on the tongue for way too long, despite all the fruit and sweetness there’s an unpleasant bitterness.

O – I wonder if this beer could use a lot more time in the bottle to age and mellow out. Right now the sweetness overwhelms all the other aspects of the beer and makes it very hard to drink. I sampled about 8 oz. and threw the rest out.

Made with grits and Arkansas Rice at 9.2% ABV.

Saddlebock Arkansas Farmhouse Ale

A: Golden cloudy amber with a white head. Nice lacing.

S: Floral/fruity, no hops detected. Very sweet smell.

T/M: Sweet taste with prominent fruit fruit in the beginning. Subtle notes of honey with a prominent alcohol finish. Medium body and light to medium carbonation.

O: Very young beer that I would recommend to all Arkansans. I plan on re-reviewing this beer after the brewery has had an opportunity to tweak the recipe.
