From the 12 oz can in a snifter from the doomsday beer closet.
This lurker pours a muddled amber tinged golden straw color with
a nice head of white foam that subsides to a thick ring, thin clumping layer,
and sports some light lacing. Nose of lemon zest, wheat, spicy hops, and
grassy hops. Flavors exceed the mark with banana, wheat, cereal grains,
lemon zest, white pepper, and light breaded malts amongst some Belgian
yeast notes. Very nice mouth feel; medium body, smooth, lightly creamy,
soft effervescent carbonation, and moderately dry finish.

Overall---very good!

12 ounce can, canned on 01/06/21. Big thanks to Brutaltruth for this brew! Served in a Teku, the beer pours a somewhat clear gold color with about an inch or so white head. Head retention and lacing are both decent enough. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like wheat/grainy malt, nuts, grass and herbal flavors. Taste is similar to the aroma, but with the addition of some lemongrass, white grape/wine and peppery spice flavors. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it's smooth, a bit slick and easy to drink with a moderate amount of carbonation. I thought this was a good overall farmhouse ale, worth picking up if you're into these brews!

The beer is a yellow color with a little haze. There is a small, quickly disappearing white head.
Faint aroma of grain and herbs.
The taste follows the nose.
A little peppery in the mouth.

a winter wheat based brew and a tasty hardy saison here, another winner from oxbow, they are good at everything! i like how simple this is in its ingredient list and its process, but how complex it is in the flavor, so neat to feature a cool grain like this in this context, i can appreciate the body it provides, the nuttiness and earthiness that it has, and it seems to love the saison yeast this is fermented with, like they bring out the best in each other. its not the most interesting oxbow beer from a fermentation standpoint, this seems like a clean cultured strain, not mature bretty funk or anything like we often get from their beers, but i dont really miss it because this is more about the malt. its got a lot of body for what it is, pale yellowish but dense looking, quite hazy, short white head from the can. the malt has some tannins, an almost almond character, and very little residual sweetness in this instance, i can feel it on the palate as much as i can taste it, kind of neat. lightly peppery, almost a rye vibe for a second, and some white wine character from the ferment with it. overall a really unique saison, cool use of an interesting grain, and very approachable beer. i am always thankful when i get a chance to drink beer from these guys!

Can from MrBarleywine, thanks for the hookup.
Dark yellow in color with a bit of haze and a thin white head that slowly dissipates. Spicy earthy cereal and malt with some earthy spice to counter.

Can. Cloudy pale straw with fast disappearing head, which is unfortunate. Wheat tangy aroma with some grassiness and fruity orange. Bready wheaty fruity medium sweetness with some grassy herbal light mineral bitterness in the fruity orangy finish. Medium light body some fine carbo left but not much. Too bad. This could have been awesome but something went wron with the texture.

Pale, straw yellow body; plenty of lively carbonation; small, fizzy and soapy white head; a couple of big chunks of yeast sediment. Mild toasted wheat smell topped with some herbal, horse-blanket notes. The taste mimics the smell; added oomph of herbs like thyme and rosemary; mild bitterness. Light body; light juiciness interspersed with a bit of cereal grain warmth; light trace of dryness towards the finish.

This saison is okay. It seems a bit weak in the looks and taste. The flavor is decent but lacks some depth and complexity. The Main-grown Øland wheat used to make the beer is a nice touch.

CANNED ON 01/06/21 on bottom of can. Poured into a Samuel Adams Perfect Pint.

A: Slightly hazy gold with short-lived 1-finger white foamy head with low retention and no lacing.

S: Strong on wheat, lemongrass and lemon citrus, and yeast esters/phenols

T: Flavor is pretty much stock saison flavors, all pleasant for everyday drinking, but nothing too much out of the box with wheat and pils graininess, lemony hops, light yeast phenols, and clean finish. Low bitterness and medium esters.

M: This beer feels undercarbonated, and combined with the glycerol from saison yeast fermentation, it leaves this beer’s mouthfeel with too much body for the style without the crisp, dry finish you are looking for.

O: A fine saison but pretty much middle of the road and could use a carbonation touch up to given it a livelier feel and impression.
