Bottle shared at a tasting. Poured into snifter.
A: A bright, haze is poured with mild sediment. The head is like an erupting volcano, a dull white in color.
S:The aroma is a typical farmhouse aroma, with a bit of skunk. More notes of gum and candy than skunk.
T/M: Having tried many Saison / Farmhouse ales, I feel this one is very skunky on the taste, I have read of skunked bottles of this, so I will not act as if this is the true sensation of the ale. The notes of taffy and gum are subtle, but very pleasant. A nice silky mouthfeel, but a touch grainy.
D: Not an over the top Saison, but a very good one none the less. I feel I may have gotten a bad bottle, so I am hoping to get another and hope that this skunky taste is a aftermath thought. I will try again and hopefully edit my reveiw. This is how it stands as of now.

Had been looking forward to trying, Eulogy of Philly seemed appropriate.

375ml bottle poured into large chalice.

A: Golden/hazy/Belgian. Pillowy head with constant lacing. Nice appearance.

S: Pure sweet fruits with some malt and yeast that matches in the aroma. Banana the most dominant.

T: Both tartness and bitterness. All the malts, fruits, sugars, and floral flavors well balanced. Hops in the aftertaste make an appearance later on. Sour and yeasts are what you are left with- textbook saison to someone like myself that is newer to the style.

M: Thin bodied with a yeast coating. No burn or stickiness.

D: Not my favorite style but have been enjoying more as of late. This one was great with garlic mussels and the perfect match. Easily could have several in a sitting as it doesnt become boring. Summertime would be good for this one.

Cork popped and the bubbly rose as this treat entered my wine glass. Cloudy yellow body with a tall lively head. Crisp, dry citrus and spicy fruits with a little puckering effect on the mouth. If I was disappointed that the pub was out of the Fantome I had ordered, that disappointment quickly faded as I took my first sip of this very drinkable and quite affordable brew.

This beer is never around the area in bottle format so it was pure delight to find it on-tap.

In the proper glassware, this beer actualizes a golden canary with a fluffy dollop of head that lasts, lingers, and leaves great lace rings.

The aroma of this beer is enticingly tart; lemony, filled with crisp hop zest, with a slightly spicy yeast profile.

This beer is a delicious saison: it is amazingly light and zingy on the mouth but also delightfully substantial. The lemon flavors abound in harmony with a peppery spice content...and the lingeringly powerful hop-bite just makes it more drinkable by the end of the glass.

The mouthfeel is almost bitingly carbonated but underneath is a dry, addictively smooth pucker of lemon and lime. Damned drinkable...hope I can find this again sometime.
