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.

Pours brown with a frothy white head. Taste is reminiscent of Rodenbach's grand cru but a bit more balanced and less vinegar. It's sweet, sour, tangy, and a touch of spice. Actually pretty well done. Taste is more Flanders red than saison.

Farmhouse from the UK??? I should have been suspect from the start. This was listed as a sour at Pangeae In Sacramento but it's no sour . Slightly bitter aftertaste but too dark/ heavy for a farmhouse

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.

On cask. Very unique. Almost medicinal. Definitely taste the coriander. Pretty cool.

A: The beer is very hazy brownish yellow in color. It poured with a finger high off white head that gradually died down, leaving a large collar around the edge of the glass and wispy lacing on the surface.
S: Light to moderate aromas of apricots are present in the nose along with some notes of spices and hints of sourness.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste has flavors of apricot but these aren't overly strong as there are notes of spices such as ginger and nutmeg. There are only some hints of sourness from the brett.
M: It feels light-bodied and rather airy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The light-bodied nature of this beer and fact that it's not overpowered by apricots makes it very easy to drink. I'm not sure if I would have this again, but it was interesting. Maybe this is a beer that you really need to lay down for several years to let the brett yeast to further develop.
