From a growler I had filled today at the brewery.

A deep ruby/amber in color with a short light brown head.

Banana and spicy aroma. Very nice.

Classic Belgian flavor: Complex and earthy and spicy, with bread flavors to boot. Excellent.

Hefty body.

Overall a very nice Belgian-style ale from St. Petersburg. Green Bench is new, but they can brew.

On tap at Green Bench for Foeder for Thought. Foeder #3. Pours a copper color with great lacing, thin light tan head, thin collar. Aroma is funky red wine, grassy-earthy. Taste is much like the nose but with some caramel sweetness too. Fuller body than the Saison de Banc Vert, and some more carbonation as well.

a rather pedestrian saison for me here, dark red in color with a nice white head and good retention on it, but the use of that wine heavy french saison type yeast is off putting with all the darker grain in here, and a balance is never really discovered in either aroma or flavor that makes this a beer id like to drink again. it seems disjointed, like a weird strain of yeast got pitched into a copper ale or something, it has that style hybrid weirdness and lack of fluidity. i do like the feel though, with a on of big soda like bubbles and a medium body that finishes bone dry. my problem i think is just the yeast, its unflattering to the grain selected, and while the beer hints at being well made, i think the recipe may just need a bit of reworking. i didnt dislike it, but it was disagreeable to my palate from a yeast standpoint. will need to try others from green bench to get a better feel for it, but this was forgettable in the form i had it.
