Pour is lightly hazed golden amber with a tight white head. Nose is heavy candied sugar, strong stale grain, faint spice and some lemon and golden fruit. Taste follows suit, lots of sugar, candied sugars, lemon, light grain. High carbonation, smooth body.

On tap at Track 84 Warwick
Comes to the table a slightly hazy light golden color and a smallish off white head. Aromas of light funk, bread, bits of lemon, clove, and pepper. The flavor follows the aroma well. Light refreshing easy to drink, I enjoyed this a bit.

A: copper with a long lasting head

S: fresh, subdued natural scents

T: balanced; not sweet in any lasting sense with hints of apple and grapefruit coming through occasionally.

M: the floral notes and a restrained wheaty background don't linger around longer than they need to; sometimes reviving on the tongue for a moment, but generally making an exit before the next sip.

O: a real pleasant beer to enjoy in the waning summer months, look forward to picking some up next season.

Pours a clean looking golden color, small to medium sized fizzy head off a vigorous pour, fades quickly and leaves no lacing on the glass.

Smell is dominantly sweet malt in aroma, not much funk or spiciness that's hitting the nose for a farmhouse, pretty straightforward except for a decent sized yeasty whiff.

Taste starts out with a fairly sweet malt start, touches of light fruit like lemon and even some orange zest, yeasty aftertaste, finishes semi-dry with a a slight lingering tartness, carbonation is high but appropriate.

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

Appearance: Pours a cloudy amber color with a rocky head that leaves a few strands behind as it descends

Smell: Bready malt with a slightly toasty character; complex grains (porridge-like); a hint of fruit (apple, lemon and banana); white pepper and just a touch of farmhouse funk

Taste: Tart fruit flavors arrive first, with lemon, banana and apple cider tones; by mid-palate, the complex malt bill adds a range of cereal flavors; grassy hops arrive with the swallow; and the bitter and slightly tart flavors bring up the rear, though there is an unmistakable floral aspect to the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A very interesting beer with a lot of complexity in the flavor profile; nice to see the brewery go out on a limb, here

Big thanks to beersndrums for this one! Another new brewery that I’ve tried because of this guy!

22 oz bottle poured into a globe at cellar temperature.

L – Pale gold color with a huge 5-finger creamy, frothy, white head that lasts forever. There’s some nice lacing going on here, too. Slightly hazy with a lot of carbonation bubbles.

S – Grainy, bready malt, citrus and banana esters, some grassy hops, and peppery and somewhat funky Belgian-style yeast. Really nice.

T – Starts off mildly sweet with bready malt and citrus and banana esters. Grassy and earthy hops come in next, followed by peppery and musty Belgian yeast at the finish. Tasty.

F – Light-medium-bodied, good carbonation, a creamy but crisp mouthfeel, and an earthy, musty, and dry finish.

O – This is a really nice saison. It fits the style to a tee and is very tasty. It’s very drinkable, and the 7.8% ABV is nowhere to be found. Thanks for the beer, Jared!
