Draught @ Brewery: This one pours a dark, coppery golden color. There was a wisp of a white head and no lacing. Nice nose. Earthy, malty and honey notes. The taste is very good. Malty, some sweetness, dark fruits, honey and some earthiness.

Stopped into Tributary on 14JUL16 for a quick one after doing some hiking. A 12oz pour in a small tulip cost $5.40.

This offering was a deep amber-golden color, and was a touch cloudy. Had light carbo, and just a trace of foam around the edge, with minimal lacing. Smelled a touch toasty, with some honey notes present. Aroma was generally mild, though. Body was medium, with a little prickle hitting the tongue.

Flavor had some light honey as well, with a hint of caramel and bubblegum. Other aspects noted were fruitiness, earthiness and some subtle spicy action. Tasty and satisfying. Prosit!

Ahh... another stylistic puzzler. Described on their website as follows:

A honey saison, light Amber farmhouse ale made with 70# of wildflower honey. A phenolic Belgian yeast strain fermented at a warmer temp make for a fruity yet spicy dry beer. 8.5% ABV

So, somewhere in between a saison and a braggot. It tasted more like a braggot than a typical saison, so that's how I classified it.

Pours an orangey amber, very fizzy with a nice head.

Smells spicy and sweet. Tastes spicy and sweet. Lots of dark fruits, similar to a good dubbel, but with a more aggressive spice profile that cuts into them quickly. The sweetness begins near the middle and the beer finishes dry and pleasantly medicinal.
