3/5 rDev -28.4%
No chalice so have to use a trusty pint glass.
Beer pours a pale, grainy color with a decent amount of head that leaves thick lacing. I decided to let the beer warm up before trying it. Aroma is rich and spicy with faint hints of raisin. Taste is very light at first with only the spice and raisin showing through. Goes down smooth. A second sip confirms the smoothness and maltiness. I feel that the beer isn't as strong as I hoped and it just seems unimpressive to me. Not bad but I'll definitely revisit down the road.

Cork says 2.009, don't know if that means anything or not.
A- Pours a murky light gold/yellow with a huge off-white head. Lacing runs down the side of the glass quickly as I swirl. The head recedes a bit after a few minutes.
S- Musty, old, dank. Wet horse/dog. A little malt in there. Not pulling these aromas off well.
T- Straw, acidic lemons, and spice. The spiciness is like coriander and/or grains of paradise. Musty. Some malty sweetness briefly appears before the finish. Again, has some elements that I would like if done well, but they're just not working for me.
M- Lighter side of medium bodied. Feels most thin towards the finish. A sharp, highly carbonated beer.
D- One 375 ml bottle is fine with me. Not the best beer. Lighter body helps the drinkability.
Overall, this reminds me A LOT of Sam Adams' Summer Ale, but with a little less spice, and more must. No need for me to have that or this again. Smuttynose's Farmhouse Ale is something I would get if I'm in the mood for a saison.

Openned Oct. 4, 2005. Best before 01/2008.
A: Copper-gold, nice white head, but very little retention. Still makes some nice lace though!
S: Grassy, herbal.
T: Spicy yeast flavour, very dry, sharp bitterness. Tartness is only barely detectable. Very rustic & unrefined. I realize this is part of the style, but it just wasn't harmonious... it's like all the instruments were there, but they were playing off-key.
M: Light body, moderately high carbonation.
D: While it hides the alcohol well, there's a bit of a bite, and I don't find it all that pleasant.

3.08/5 rDev -26.5%
A - Great golden straw coloration. Hazy. Huge head that sticks.
S - Straw, yeast, hops, lemon rind, piss.
T - Follows the nose. Too pissy, though.
M - Over-carbonated, bubbly in the wrong place.
D - A poor beer. Too musty and hold tasting. Would never get this again.
