One of the better beers i've had from the Saison style. Pours out to a slighly cloudy golden color with a nice head of white foam. High level of carbonation. Aromas of earth and barnhouse are strong, with some sweet malts and spice notes. Taste is very quaffable; flavors of malts, volatile yeast, sweet grain and mild corn are present and blend quite well. I have to say, this beer gets better as it slightly warms. Mouthfeel is smooth and silky, going down far too easy for the higher ABV that it possesses. Drinkability is good. I really like this beer, and considering i'm not a big fan of the style, it's very good. Highly recommended for the style.

finally getting around to reviewing the summer kegerator selection.. been on tap for approximately 3-4 weeks and still yummy as hell.. gonna kick soon so here we go:

gold with amber highlights, bubbles marching randomly. big huge puffy head deconstructing slowly with craters and caverns. bigtime lacing sticks to the glass. aroma is a fresh cut grass sauteed in butter with a sprinkle of hop spice and minimal sweetness. light and springy. flavor is cooling in a licorice fashion, fresh botanical notes prevail with a bit of diacetyl. creamy finish on the first sip.. light body and goes down quicker than i had planned. after the creamy character coats, big bright fruit is revealed.. even a mild white wine hint of grape. perfect summer beer for BA nerds like me and drinkable for someone who doesnt mind the big abv. only negative is that this is not a food-pairing beer IMO, and that's something i look for in my kegerator selections.

oh, and the other negative is that i didn't get any hennepin passport promotional items from terry. hmm. i wanted that damn canoe too!
