ACBF sample

A-Pours a lightly hazy yellow/orange. The head was just as thick as the body of my two oz. sample.

S-The thing that sticks out most to me is the spicy and phenolic yeast of the beer. Fruity esters are also picked up in the nose. There is a noticeable hop character which I enjoy.

T-Spicy and lightly cloves is the yeast. Apples and other fruits. A grassy hoppiness accompanies the yeast and a light, easy malt provides backing to the more dynamic flavors.

M-Medium bodied. Light bitterness. Finishes mostly dry. Well carbonated.

O-A no frills Saison that is definitely good but also much like many others in the style.

A clear light yellow color with a one inch white head. A good deal of lace.
Earthy, spicy aroma.
Peppery taste, a little lemon. Earthy hops.
Crisp and refreshing.

Pours clear, bright yellow in color with 1/2 inch head. Taste is melon, grass, funk, and a touch of grape. A nice summer sipper. I have others in the style I prefer, but this one is good.

on tap poured into snifter. I am not a huge saison guy but I keep trying them every once in awhile. I thought this was very good it had a nice light funk to it but it wasn't bitter or abrasive on the tongue. it was very smooth felt very low carbonation, malty and very soft. This is a saison I wouldn't kick out of bed!
