Rhode Island

3.6/5  rDev +5.6%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Served from a 11.2oz screen printed bottle into a Crooked Stave tulip. Complete blind buy.

Appearance- Murky off-orange/brown with two finger off-white foamy head. Mild lacing.

Smell- Light orangey-apricot with lots of warm spices. Light funky yeast. Can't pinpoint too much else. Not bad at all, but not much going on.

Taste- Apricot up front, but quickly taken over by warm spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, and a lot of ginger. Ginger is predominant here. Flavors work together, but there's a little too much spices. Would be nice as a holiday porter?

Mouthfeel- Light bodied with medium-high carbonation. Light booze heat (it's only 6%). No real tartness.

Overall- Interesting beer with wild yeasts, but it feels like it hasn't had enough time to develop yet. Who know, maybe with time, the yeasts will develop more and this will be a completely different beer. I won't be doing that experiment though.

2.96/5  rDev -13.2%
look: 2.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 2.75

330ml bottle bought from Lighthouse Wines, Jordanstown

Poured a murky amber brown colour. Dirty mocha head poured light and wispy... no carbonation bubbles at all... some light sticky lacing..

Aroma - sour and earthy roasted apricots, some nuttiness, pumpkin traces, some funk, light vinegar notes, some leathery notes, oaky wood, black pepper spiciness, hint of nutmeg and cinnamon

Taste –- Pretty much as above... a messy mix of sour roasted apricots, earthy spices (allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg), and some funky wild yeastiness, quite bitter, toasted bread...

Feel - Fairly sharp and dry... medium bodied

Overall - A very messy brew that could do with a lot of tidying up... not much to recommend here

3.16/5  rDev -7.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 2 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Bottles poured into a Sam Adams Perfect pint 30 minutes after removal from the fridge.

A - Murky orange/copper with 3 finger off white head.

S - Sour hops. Smoke. Bread notes. I didn't find the smell overly appealing to be honest. Has a sour, almost cheese like aroma.

T - Sour, spicy, smokey. Hints of apricots, orange and coriander. Short finish.

F - Light, alot of carbonation.

O - Not bad. The smell is not pleasent in my humble opinion, but the taste makes up for it well. I would definitely consider this a session beer. Perhaps served a little cooler than this, maybe only 15-20 minutes out of the fridge.

Poured into a tulip glass. Pours a very hazy caramel brown with a finger of fine off-white head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of caramel malt, sweet and sour dark and light stone fruit, earthy with saison style yeast. Flavor is unusual, quite earthy with lightly roasty biscuit malt, woody spices, mild dark and light fruit and finishes with earthy, peppery saison yeast and spicing with a mild buttery element. Medium bodied with pleasant active carbonation. A unique take on the season style, like an herbal ale crossed with a spicy saison. Starts a bit more earthy and woody than expected, but the flavor was intriguing enough to keep interest throughout the glass. I did not taste the apricot flavors, but there was a dark unidentifiable fruit element to the flavor. I'd like to try something else from this brewery, which is new to me. Obviously able to push the envelope and still have an interesting and drinkable ale.
