look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

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.

A: The beer is orange-red in appearance and poured with just a thin layer of bubbles on the surface. There is a light amount of carbonation.
S: There is some malty sweetness in the aroma along with some notes of hops and yeast.
T: The initial taste has some sweetness with flavors of toasted malts; some notes of bitterness from the hops make an appearance in the finish. The overall taste starts to become more complex as it warms up.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate.
D: It was rather drinkable, but if I have this again I would probably pair it with food. The beer becomes a bit more drinkable as it warms up.
