A great craft brew. It went very well with the great burger I had at DMK.
Spicy smell and taste. Hints of carmel. Good mouth feel and very easy to drink.
Very good white head. Reddish carmel clear colour. A gentle hop aroma with a decent bitter finish.

My pal, Jeff brought this one back from the Midwest for me. Rock on!

Served in a Delirium Tremens shaped-glass.

A: Two finger, white head on top of a mildly cloudy, gold/red brew. Pretty good so far.

S: Sort of a sandy, brown sugary, hoppy, disposition overall. More sugar than anything.

T: Fairly smooth, a bit sugary (appropriate to style), and kinda bland. However, I guess the style itself is kinda bland. Malt/hop blend was about 50/50.

M: Sugary, but I've experience worse in this realm. Amazingly ridiculous lacing left on the glass.

O: I've had a few in this style in my day, and this is about in the middle.

Bottle dated best by 12/29/12 (I think). Poured into tulip glass.

This is an exceptionally pretty beer. Pours a nice, cloudy amber color with an inch of cream colored head. Very nice lacing as well. On the nose, bready malts with a hint of cherries...cherry coffeecake. Down the hatch, more of the same malty/cherry notes. Light sour notes are detected as well. Mouthfeel is nice: balanced, medium.

I've had this plenty of times, and had some left over from a Halloween party. Good change of pace for my tastes.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a small tumbler. Best by 12/1/2012.

ECE/SAE amber liquid, somewhat cloudy with a dusting of off-white foam up top. Delicate lacing, average retention.

Lovely winter fruit and phenolic yeast notes in the nose, clean with pear skin and pale malt notes coming forward as well.

Nice distinctive yeast "funk" in the palate entry with a distinctive complexity desirable from farmhouse ales. Mildly tart and moderately dry throughout, finishing clean with a floral/earthy bitterness. Hops and yeast both seem to extend their flavors as the ale warms in a lovely synergy.

Soft gentle mouth-feel, though it could use a bit more carbonation perhaps.

A tasty little "farmhouse" ale - with more malt than many saisons and more hops than some biere de gardes; well priced, though further bottle conditioning might improve the affair.

The appearance overall was what I thought was best, golden/amber color. The taste was awesome and exactly as they described it because you get the sweet taste in the beginning and then the hops kick in and finish the balance. There's not much of a head but there is really good lacing, carbonation is also on the lighter side.

This is a real good ale though and it was really good, good autumn beer.
