I think you did just fine for your first time. As I said there is no wrong or right way to do it. And don't worry your reviews will become more discriptive over time, at least mine are. BRAVO !!!!!!!!!!
Since there was not a Saison available locally I went for the Farmhouse Ale. New Hollands Farmhouse Hatter IPA. 5.8% ABV I am not a lover of IPA's and was pleased with the calmer hoppy taste. Had your typical farmhouse ale taste, nice spiciness with a slight tartness to it. Foamed up nicely with a wonderful spicy aroma.
