Relatively recently at Rattle 'N Hum's Victory promo...about 2 months ago. Poured a translucent gold, with less than a finger of white, and less than stellar retention and lacing. No visible carbonation wasn't surprising, given the cask origin. The smell was a robust bouquet of rosemary and other spices that I couldn't place, mixed with grass and sugary apple. The taste was very nice as well, tasting more like a saison rather than a bitter, and finishing on a dry apple note. Non-carbonated, smooth texture, and surprisingly thin which certainly aided its sessionability. Fantastic session brew. It definitely tasted as if the folks from Victory used the hops left over from brewing Saison du Buff to brew this great beer, given the herbal/spicey profile. No complaints here.
Serving type: cask

Served on-nitro-tap at Pony Bar (Hells Kitchen) in New York, NY
A: Pours a crystal clear deep medium golden yellow in color with minimal amounts of visible carbonation and some darker golden yellow + copper highlights. The beer has a two finger tall creamy light beige head that very slowly reduces to a thick film covering the entire surface of the beer with a slightly thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Light to moderate aromas of pale and bready malts with a light amount of citrus/orange rind hops.
T: Light to moderate flavors of toasted pale malts that have an almost buttery aspect to them with some light notes of citrus/orange rind hops and just a hint of lingering bitterness.
M: Light bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. Super creamy.
O: Unfortunately this beer did not really benefit from being served on nitro - it came out a little too creamy almost like a cream ale. I think this beer would be best served on cask with light amounts of carbonation. Very easy to drink.
Serving type: nitro-tap
