Binny's Orland

Hiver pours surprisingly clear for the first glassful and surprisingly it's a bright glowing copper. Tinycarbonation bubbles stream up the sides of the glass to the 2+ finger head. The head shrunk to a thick creamy cap of off-white. Leaves sheet lacing down the glass..

The smell of this saison is craziness. I can't hardly figure out what the aromas even are. Definately some dry and wet musty hay. Damp wood. Cobwebs and dirt along with a field that is on the brink of making me sneeze. I don't know what to make of the aroma. As it warms the aroma softens.

Flavor is along the same lines as the aroma. Still has all that old barn character but the flavors meld moreso than the aroma. On the finish there's a pleasant fruity sweetness (peach) along with a caramalized malt character.

Medium bodied with a creamy texture. lively carbonation tickles the tongue and cheeks.

The interesyting flavors really work your mouth. A couple glasses in a sitting is enough for me but it is disappearing quickly.

This beer is really throwing me for a loop. I can't make up my mind if I love it or hate it. It's definately funky and interesting. I wish I knew what went into making this beer, I'm sure I'd be surprised if I looked at an ingrediants list. The flavors and aromas really evolve as this beer sits.
