Served on tap in a 10 oz chalice glass

Appearance – Served a hazy yellow colored beer with a thin white head. The head fades rather fast to leaving a light level of lacing.

Smell – The aroma is heaviest of a fruity aroma mixed with a strong wheat bread and yeasty presence. The fruit aromas are of a citrus and slightly tropical nature which when combined with the more classic saision yeast and bready smells create a nice aroma overall.

Taste – The taste begins with a sweeter fruit flavor as well as some wheat bready tastes. The fruit is of a citrus nature to begin with. As the taste advances the fruit flavors however transition a bit with some lighter pear and apple flavors with the overall sweeter fruit lightening in nature. As this occurs some yeast tastes develops more as well. At the end of the flavor, comes some notes of a pepper which leaves a rather lightly peppered, fruit and yeasty flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel –The body of the beer is rather moderate in its creaminess and thickness and the brew has a carbonation level that is slightly higher than average.

Overall – A fairly tasty brew. A decent flavor profile with smooth flavor transition. Rather easy drinking and one to give a go if you get the chance.

Served on-tap at the Gamble Mill.

A: The farmhouse ale is hazy, a golden yellow color that looks meaty. A thin white head comes with the ale, leaving a few patches of lace behind.

S: Fleshy fruit aromas, pepper and earthy hops drive the nose, more tripel than saison when the yeasty byproducts are considered. Very little spiceness, aniseedy, thanks to rye.

T: More sweetness, the pepper and pear flavors are right at home. The sweetness approximates candi sugar, but I don't think that that was an ingredient. Rye and wheat, very subtle, add darker tastes. Lower carbonation levels allow the sweeter aspects to linger.

M: The pepper, rye, and wheat, all upsides, don't get too active taste-wise. Instead the sweetness lingers. A decent farmhouse ale.
