4.08/5  rDev +0.5%

750ml capped and corked bottle shared by Jason - thanks. Bottled 8/25/2012. Best before 2016.

A: Pours a hazy dark orange with a 1/2-inch thick white head which fades to the rim and leaves spotty lace.

N: Roasty mild coffee, saison yeast, floral, spice, grainy, bready.

T: Funky coffee, roasty grains, pumpernickel bread, fruity, earthy.

M: Moderate body and medium carbonation. Dry, coffee and yeasty finish.

O: Unique and interesting. I've never had a coffee farmhouse before this.

750ml poured into a matching Fantome tulip. The brew appears a clouded amber color with an off-white head. Some spotty and patchy lace stick to the glass as the cap slowly fades.

The aroma is fruity and earthy/rindy with a little bit of cheese and funkiness. A fruity melon aspect is present from the middle to the finish which is strange but kinda works to pull it all together.

The taste is bitter and fruity with pulp/rinds. Earthen with almost a fruity melon character mid-palate but lasting bitterness and mild alcohol warmth. A spicy green pepper character comes out as it warms.

This is a medium bodied brew with a moderate amount of carbonation. It is nice and lively but wow is it bitter and earthy with mild fruit. The bitterness somewhat hurts the overall drinkability but by all regards this isnt that bad.
