2014 vintage. Really impressive. High carb, slight gusher. Clear, dark yellow with wispy white head. Big time legs.Nice light lemon esters, light grain, and yeasty nose. White grape and citrus flavor with lingering champagne brut. Big carb, fluffy mouthfeel. Really beautiful beer, particularly at this age. Highly recommended.

Not very interesting. A little to much medicinal the flavor for me.

This is not a well constructed saison. Too much going on the flavors are all muddled between each other. These sit on the shelf and collect dust at most bottle shops and for good reason. I so badly want Saint Somewhere to make good brews as I'm a local, but they haven't demonstrated the ability.

A 2013 bottle, based on the date stamped onto the cork. I see this is a one-off beer brewed with Cynthiana grapes from Florida. According to The Microbrewed Beer of the Month Club, it was made just for them, so I'm surprised I found it on the shelf at a local ABC.

A bright gold in color with a foamy white head that reduces to a quarter-inch layer in my tulip glass.

Earthy aroma is quite complex with notes of funk and cracked pepper and wood.

A dry and earthy flavor with that typical farmhouse complexity. Pepper, citrus, grass: lots of stuff is going on here.

The beer club notes that brewmaster Bob Sylvester says Cynthiana will age well for a least three years, growing drier. It is certainly dry with a year under its belt.

This brew shows how amazingly varied beer can be. If you haven't had Belgian-style farmhouse ales, you might get your mind blown.
