Served in a champagne flute.

A - Cloudy amber with high carbonation medium sized head. Tons of lacing.

S - Hay, juniper, faint plums and caramel malt.

T - A grassy hop flavor with some faint pluots, gala apples, grapefruit pith, a touch of malt and pine. Aftertaste is a lingering faint fruitiness that is overshadowed by a pine bitterness.

M - Smooth, thin, pretty refreshing.

D - Great. I had this before on tap and remember being disappointed, but from the bottle this is an excellent saison. It's funk has style. Another winner from Weyerbacher. I won't pass this up again.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

light peach colored amber and a huge white head that reached nearly two inches high an never really relented leaving a ton of lacing on the sides.

aroma is very light, pears and apples, touches of banana, clove, hints of grain, but light, almost non existent at points. flavor was about the same, very light, but nice, lots of light fruits, tons of grain and a definte yeast presence that seemed to build over time. just seemed to need that one last pop to push it into the excellent category. still super sessionable and really a nice way to get the afterparty going.

Had a bottle of Weyerbacher Muse back in November of 2008. This farmhouse ale poured out as a hazy orange yellow brew that had a pretty strong head on it. The smell of the beer wasn't overly
Funky like most saisons or farmhouse ales. Instead it had some nice floral aromas coming out of it and some hops too. The taste was nice also, the malts and hops mixed with some wild flowers worked pretty well together. Mouthfeel of Muse was really carbonated, I was impressed on how this beer kind of exploded in your mouth with each sip. This ale wasn't bad but I can understand how it was bummed to the retired section when it has to compete with some of Weyerbachers other beers.

22 oz Bomber

Appearance: Cloudy, yeast sedmiment. Soapy head, alittle bit of lace.

Smell: Alittle funky, cheesey, barnyard. Interesting aroma. Citrus tang smell, almost like a lemon peel. This beer has no spices added, so alot of yeast making up for a spicy nose.

Taste: Mellow flavors of citrus and earth. Wheat malt flavor. Raw wheat malt almost confusing me with yeast flavors. Almost tastes like sweet straw. Musty basement. Grassy bitterness. Alright but not the most pleasing.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, chalky finish.

Drinkability: Interesting mix of flavors, rather raw but true to style. Not the most appetizing but glad I got to try it.

They brewed this beer true to style and purpose, and the true farmhouse enthusiast will appreciate. I found it to be rather decent.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A: The beer is clear golden yellow in color and has a light to moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a small head that quickly dissipated leaving a ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass and lacy patterns of bubbles floating in the center.
S: The smell is somewhat musty and has aromas of pepper. Notes of apples and other fruits become evident as the beer begins to warm up.
T: Like the smell, the overall taste is earthy, musty, spicy and has a slight amount of sourness. There are flavors of apples and spices.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and somewhat crisp on the palate with a low to moderate amount of carbonation. There is a bit of dryness in the finish.
D: The taste was interesting and rather unique for the style but I don't think this beer would be well suited for drinking on a hot summer day.

Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine July 2007.

Fermented with Forbidden Fruit yeast at a high tem- perature. Hopped with Styrian Goldings and Saaz--they took an authentic path, to be sure. Word of warning: Serve this beer at cellar temperature.

A steady decanting yields enough white head to almost spill out of the glass; a rich rocky head slowly subsides to a patch trail of lace. Hazed tawny color, to be expected of the style. Musty aroma; more basement than barnyard in the nose and very yeasty in the back, with both medicinal phenols and fruity esters. It's a yeast explosion to start with, and a medicinal phenolic character is not too far off, either. Thankfully, they get balanced off by a dry malt flavor, slightly tropical fruity esters and a faint hop smack.

With its over-the-top with flavor, this one will certainly be hard to grasp for the novice beer drinker--especially anyone with no knowledge of Belgian ales. That said, if you dig Fantôme, you will love this beer. We may as well chalk this one up to being this year's most complex American-brewed Belgian-style ale. Baked brie cheese with a blackberry filling would be a good, taming accompaniment.
