Murky straw color. Small-ish head. Burned chocolate, pear in the smell. Medium grassy hoppiness in the taste. Has more malts than I'd expect. More like a light Belgian pale than a saison, but still good.

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a chalice.

A - Poured an opaque, slightly golden straw color. Thin, crispy head.

S - Cloves, orange peel, lemon rind, very yeasty.

T - Lively yeast spice hits hard up front, settling into clove, orange, and lemon notes. Hint of rosemary, and a nice hop flavor in the back. Pretty high residual bitterness, which gets a little overwhelming after a bit.

M - Pretty thin and aggressive, but refreshing.

O - Pretty solid Saison, but would've liked a little more spice than bitterness.

Full notes taken to phone the other night.

A- 12oz slim bottle to a couple snifters with a golden body with lots of haze some and particulate suspended. White cap at around a finger with decent retention dropping a few small sheets of lacing.

S- Bright Saison yeast is the show with an emphasis on citrus fruits and yeast spice; hints at very slight tartness. Herbal coriander, lemon oil, orange zest, sage and apples/pale grapes come to mind.

T- Fruits and spices derived fron whatever yeast strain they utilize in this Saison. Lemon peels, pink peppercorn, coriander, oranges, vanilla sweetness, apple and pear esters, Pils grains, white grapes, crusty bread, herbal grassy hops and even slight phenols marry in a balanced profile.

MF- Mostly dry with only a slight residual sweetness in a medium overall body for the style. Carbonation is at a moderately low level and lacks that crisp bite I look for. Soothing creaminess and light spicy bitterness.

Relatively fruity Saison with an herbal and spicy character helping to balance that all out. Smooth for 7% but lacks some carbonation in the feel.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Appearance: Light golden slightly hazy body with a short white head that quickly fades to nothing. Decent lacing.

Aroma: There is a faint spicy aroma, but it doesn't shout out with any distinct farmouse ale characteristic scents.

Taste: Spicy herbal flavor, like clove and faint rosemary.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied to the point of being a bit thin with a bit of a chalky feeling.

Overall: It was a pretty average farmhouse ale. Nothing really stood out though, it was pretty lacking in aroma and mouthfeel. It's not something I'd pick up again.

12 oz bottle

Pours hazed yellowy lighter amber, sturdy lite khaki head, last and gets all frothy. Leaves ample fine lace on the glass

Earthy nose with some minty and peppery spice tagging along

Flavorful and complex, with more earth, pepper, green pepper, bubble gum, mint.

Delicious. Well worth seeking out and savoring

Ryan and the Beaster Bunny poured a clear golden color with a two finger foam head that slipped away gracefully. Not much lacing to speak of. The aroma is lemon and citrus with some hints of herbs. There is a very earthy smell to Ryan and the Beaster Bunny. The taste of is almost Brett-like, with sour mixed in with funky herbs and floral notes. The flavors of Ryan and the Beaster Bunny are difficult to lock down, but are definitely farmhouse and include banana, caramel, bubblegum, pepper, vanilla, and tartness. The mouthfeel is smooth to a bit on the carbonated side. There is an ever-so-slight alcohol undertone but at 7.0% really not bad at all. Overall I feel that Ryan and the Beaster Bunny is a solid farmhouse offering.

Some definitive farmhouse ale aromas, funk earthly smell. Finishes tarty but slight dry. Sometimes it tastes like a Saison that lead's into a farmhouse ale, if you know what I mean. Worth trying for sure...

Starts with a one-finger head--some spots on the glass. Light gold color with a bit of a haze.

More sour than earthy to the nose. Some definitive farmhouse ale aromas but not as sharp as some.

The flavor starts off softly, but the swallow brings some distinctive tartness. The aftertaste is a blend of sour and bitter--pleasant blend. The body is chewy; the carbonation is high.
