Growler. Pours a hazy yellow with a nice white head. Nose is musty/funky. Flavor is barnyard continuing with wet hay/musty flavor. Honeyed sweetness in the background provided nice balance with those farmhouse sourish qualities. A little spice and citrus as well but never sensed the juniper berries. Really liked this alot and it improved as it warmed. Thanks to mjc410 for the growler.

This is a serving of Otto's Saison during BrewFest 2006.

Appearance: The ale has a deeper yellow color that is not as light as I would like. There is a decent head here.

Smell: The ale has a fruity aroma that is fairly unique for the style (the website tells me that it is juniper).

Taste: The ale has a firm spicy flavor that does not allow much room for malt or hop. The spices include a bit of honey sweetness and the astringency of the juniper.

Mouthfeel: The ale has a nice fruity aftertaste that lingers for a bit.

Drinkability: The ale is fairly drinkable, with a firm spicy body that provides a bit of unusual kicks.

On draught at the brewery.

golden / orange with an off white head presented in a tall goblet.

aromas of tart citrus, sweet melon, spice and some funk

flavor are a great blend of same - fruit, funk, spice, twang and high carbonation

more body and mouthfeel than most of the style but I liked that part.

highly enjoyable local, went great with the shrimp.
