ACBF sample

A-Pours a lightly hazy yellow/orange. The head was just as thick as the body of my two oz. sample.

S-The thing that sticks out most to me is the spicy and phenolic yeast of the beer. Fruity esters are also picked up in the nose. There is a noticeable hop character which I enjoy.

T-Spicy and lightly cloves is the yeast. Apples and other fruits. A grassy hoppiness accompanies the yeast and a light, easy malt provides backing to the more dynamic flavors.

M-Medium bodied. Light bitterness. Finishes mostly dry. Well carbonated.

O-A no frills Saison that is definitely good but also much like many others in the style.

on tap poured into snifter. I am not a huge saison guy but I keep trying them every once in awhile. I thought this was very good it had a nice light funk to it but it wasn't bitter or abrasive on the tongue. it was very smooth felt very low carbonation, malty and very soft. This is a saison I wouldn't kick out of bed!

On-tap 11/16/2014 at Battleship Brewhouse in Fall River, MA, served in a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep gold color, with a short white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains citrus, wheat, Belgian yeast, caramelized malts, some spices and a touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out very sweet with flavors of citrus, bananas and caramel as well as some spices. Then some breadiness comes in from Belgian yeast and a hearty malt character. The hops presence is mild but complementary and brings a very good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet and slightly bready.

M: Crisp and very smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Very tasty, goes down quite easily, not too filling, mild kick, good representation of style, this is a very good Saison to pound down for a long time.

Lasting head that leaves a blanket of lace. Cloudy light gold color.

Flowery and a touch of sourness.

Relatively thin and effervescent. Predominately sour but not in a lip smacking way. Way in the background I pick up some berry.

I would normally drink better beer than this. It was free but next time I will turn it down.

22 oz glass was poured into a stemless wine glass.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a hazy orange yellow color with good clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Awesome lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Vanilla, pilsner malts, Belgian yeast, yeasty esters, apples, pears, and some spice.

Taste: Same as above with some mild bitterness in the rear.

Mouthfeel: Light, crisp, refreshing, slight bitterness, a little chewy, a little dry, and medium to high carbonation.

Overall. This beer is very traditional to style. Tasty and delicious too. Will be revisiting these guys next time up in Portland.
