3.81/5  rDev -1.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Consumed 6/3/14

Appearance: Mostly clear, lightly hazy, deep gold with some honey - pours with a large head, retains a mostly solid cap, thick collar, and leaves some nice spots of lacing

Smell: Grains, light bread, light fruits, and a touch of funk - interesting array of malty and grainy aromas, including pale grains, wheat, light bread, barely cooked biscuits, and some hints of caramel grains and rye - lightly funky Belgian yeast with some farmhouse funk, clove, banana, and bubblegum - some malty sweetness, sugar, apples, grapes, and pears - pepper and more sweetness

Taste: Definitely interesting, even if I usually prefer my saisons to be dryer - nice complexity in the malts, with some pale and caramel grains, wheat, rye, and oats - decidedly bready; quite literally like a multigrain bread - some funky Belgian yeast, with some funk, clove, banana, bubblegum, and more pepper than in the aroma - floral aspects - lightly tart green apple, pear, and white grapes - finishes with some sweetness and maybe a touch of alcohol

Mouthfeel: Medium body, nicely carbonated, finishes wet and spicy

Overall: Pawtucket, the farmhouse of Rhode Island (???)

This was more interesting than expected. It's a bit on the sweet side, but the complexity of the malt profile kind of makes up for it. At the very least, this serves as a strong reminder that I need to actually tour this brewery before I move out of RI.

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

12oz can poured into a Bruery tulip.

A - Pours a touch darker than a straw golden color, moderately hazed and capped with a huge three finger head of fluffy white foam with excellent staying power. Thick soapy webs of lacing are left all down the sides of the glass.

S - Spicy, peppery up front with faint cloves. Very estery with a big melony fruit aroma, lemons, oranges...a bit of over-ripe fruit, hints of sweet pickles, grassy. A lot going on here - a veritable garden of fresh aromas.

T - Mildly tart up front that transforms to a bitter hop impression that ends in a dry biscuit-like maltiness. Pepper/spicy notes linger past the swallow leaving a noticeable feel on the tongue (I am very sensitive to peppery spices however). Lemony citrus mixes in towards the front of each sip, lightly fruity overall. Mix of a lot of stuff thrown together here too...lots of other fruity flavors that I can't place as they are a bit jumbled together.

M - Lighter body with a very intense and prickly carbonation that fills the entire mouth - very gassy beer. Spicy and fruity as expected for a farmhouse ale.

O - I like it, but don't love it. Lots of good aspects to this beer - maybe a bit too much going on for its own good though. I would have this again, but plenty of other saisons that I would pull off the shelf first given the choice...

3.6/5  rDev -7.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Hazy yellow in color. Forms a moderate sized fizzy white head that quickly reduces to a thin surface coating and then nothing at all. No lacing.

S: Aroma is pleasant. A blend of yeasty esters, spice, apple juice, and fruits.

T: Taste is disjointed. The pale malt backbone is fairly light. Some light fruity notes: apple and pear. There are strong yeasty spices, prickly spices, coriander, that seem out of place.

M: Lighter bodied. Moderate carbonation. Prickly in the mouth. A slight burning/numbing sensation on the backend that I don't attribute to alcohol.

O: This beer almost seems to be more of a Belgian Pale then what I would normally associate as a Farmhouse. It's a decent beer, but there are far better out there.
