3.73/5  rDev +2.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a clear tulip glass.

Appearance: Slightly hazy medium brown in color, with a one and half finger foam head that settled to a frothy cap and left good sticky lacing.

Smell: Yeasty spices like clove and nutmeg, mixed with some rye and citrus hops. Sweetness from malts underneath. Complex and inviting.

Taste: The invitation of the smell extends to the flavor. The rye and hops are up front with very little bitterness, then the rye and roasted malts kick in to smooth things out and the yeasts add a good spiciness. Finishes semi-dry.

Mouth Feel: Medium body and good carbonation. Semi-dry finish.

Overall: A very interesting take on the Saison style. The rye and dry hopping really add to the yeast varieties and make this one really complex and unique. I like this beer a lot and will grab at least a couple more bottles before it's gone.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Reviewed from notes, no date, drank with Nate on his second trip down.

Nate says after taste reminds him of Fresca. Medium cloudy brown with a thin white head, smells like an aged saison, rye definitely apparent in smell and taste, also taste faintly yeasty and clovey. Medium low in carbonation, slightly boozy. Taste like a mild version of John Henry's 3 lick spiker ale almost exactly.
