Brown in color with good clarity. A fingernail of beige foam covers the majority of the top. Aroma is all amber malt. The flavor is primarily amber malt with notes of caramel. The mouth is lightly salty and dry.

A: Quite red with a thin but consistent tan head that keeps its retention for quite a while; carbonation is bubbly and pleasant

S: Apple cider and pears sit on top of an earthy graininess; there is a tartness that is refreshing as well

T: Not as tart as the aromas would indicate; still a touch of fruitiness--apple and pear in particular, but really the flavors are dominated by an earthy grain quality with subtle wet hay flavors

F: A tad thin but fairly decent mouth feel

D: This is an okay beer with moments of greatness but it ultimately falls a bit short because of the simplicity and lack of a certain funk that I am accustomed to in my Bier de Gardes

This offering from Two Brothers pours a dark maroon that has some yeast floating around the body, leaving a tan lace that floats on the top of the beer. The aroma is plum, dates, figs, prune lots of "stone fruit" are present in this saison. There is a sweetness to the body (sugary prune juice). The taste is hoppy, starts off with watery plum fruit juice feel, it has a malty background that reminds me of grape juice. The finish is a suttle hop bitter aftertaste with a somewhat floural watery mouthfeel. Pretty decent overall, I love the different flavor for this saison.
