Widmer Brothers "W’12 Dark Saison"
Widmer Brothers Brewing Company - Portland, Oregon USA
Saison (ABV 5.5%)

[Best served in a Tulip glass]

Rating: 3.3/5.0

Aroma: 6/10
Appearance: 2/5
Taste: 6/10
Palate: 4/5
Overall: 15/20

The pour was a mahogany brown with a small (less than 1 finger) white fizzy head that dissipated in a matter of seconds, down to almost non-existent collar with poor lacing.

Aroma had a mild funkiness to it with a mild straw malt, a barnyard scented yeast and notes of a mild dark chocolate, some very ripe fruit (plums, dates and pears) and a mild peppery spice.

The taste was very lightly sweet with a nice malty feel and a hint of fruit from the beginning with the finish having a strong funky yeast taste and a mild peppery ending. The flavor lasted only a short time proceeding the swallow being mostly of a funky spicy yeast flavor that disappeared very quickly.

Mouthfeel was a shade or two above light in body and watery, yet creamy in texture with an almost flat carbonation.

Overall a very unique tasting Farmhouse Ale, but good none the less...
