Served in a tulip glass at Farmhouse Tavern.

Gotta keep trying out these new locals, I thinks to myself. Luckily, here's another for me sample... It pours a clear golden brass topped by over a finger of light cream-white foam. The nose comprises wheat, grass, light lemon zest, light coriander, and light banana. The taste brings in more of the same, along with some rye-like spice (almost clove-ish) and some black pepper. The body is a light-leaning medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a dry-ish finish. Overall, a pretty solid BPA, fairly enjoyable, but nothing really close to special. I'd take another, definitely.

The Oubliette is a solid Begium style pale ale that poured a golden clear with white head that left a spotty lace. The scent carried citrus and that belgian wiff. The taste was a light crisp pale ale with spicey orange peel. The mouthfeel was light in body with good carbonation. Overall, a decent beer.

On tap @ Hop Leaf

Cloudy light pale yellow in color. Forms a fairly sizeable white head. Aroma is off: toast, cardboard, plywood, and yeasty esters that come of reminiscent of decomposition (I said: "rotten cherries" my wife described it as "dead goose") Aroma is really odd and I'm having a hard time getting a grasp of it. Taste isn't much better: a shitload of toast with a good dose of biscuit malt in the mix. Some herbal hops on the finish, but unfortunately they don't complement the toasty flavor in the least. Light to medium body with a dry toastiness to it. Leaves a rather unpleasant coating in the mouth. Overall, this beer is a good try, but far from anything I'd want to have again.
