Used for centuries on the farm as a tool to cut through bales of hay, this saw has a decidedly demonic figure. Inspired by Burial’s future as a farmhouse brewery, this Belgian farmhouse ale is deceivingly complex. pale, wheat and Belgian crystal malts are combined to forge a wonderfully well-rounded beer, while wide bodied slow fermentation of our house saison yeast imparts plum and clove flavors.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3
Appearance: Pours a lightly hazy, tawny-looking, darkish golden-amber body with a slim, off-white head.

Smell: Spicy, lightly sweet-smelling holidaytime fruit cake aroma.

Taste: Tangy, sourish, tart-tasting culmination of orchard fruits, sticky raisins, peppery spices, candy-glazed wheat, clove-flavored bubblegum, cinnamon and 'nanas. Spicy aided by a staunch carbonic bite. Convoluted flavor all the way through the tingy finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-plus carbonation.

Overall: It's okay. Feels much more akin to a dunkelweizen.

Pours lighter golden orange little dull, not amber but not as light as many saisons. Off white finger size head stays around for while for smaller head.

Aroma is wheat, light horse blanket and some tart lemon like citrus on first pour but mellows to more subdued fruit and clove.

Taste is like the nose wheat notes , light horse blanket and light tartness that is not quite lemon. Finish is lingering light horse blanket, wheat notes, lingering earth notes and clove.

Mouthfeel is medium with medium carbonation kind of mellow and little heavier then most saisons which is fine.

Overall not bad pretty descent brew, little heavier and bigger then most of the style. But not quite the funk or man this is a kick ass saison.

Appearance - not quite the color of an amber ale, but definitely much darker than a traditional saison. Beautiful head and lacing.

Smell - Malty, yeasty, slightly sour smell (weird) and mild fruit; banana, fig, pineapple.

Taste - Malty (slightly sweet malts) with a strong banana/clove presence. Little bit of sourness on the end that leaves you with a tart, malty after taste.

Feel - Heavy, low carbonation... goes down smoothly.

Overall - Totally different style than most saisons, but I don't know if i'm rushing to try another "amber saison" after this one.
