Muse Farmhouse Ale

Delighted to get the chance to snag this one at Charleston Beer Exchange, $4.79 for the 22 oz bomber. Another of my favorite styles from a very respectable brewer, hope it’s good!
Pour is a fairly dark, orange one with a decent amount of head, lace and retention. White foam on to of the hazed body. Looks good in the wine glass.
Light spice notes in the nose.
Taste are more dense than some Saison’s with some citrus, marmalade tastes and a delicate notes of mace (or something similar). The Belgian yeasts and sugars are very dominant but also totally appropriate.
The finish is a touch tart and has the Saaz bitterness that I normally associate with a Pils. Clean and satisfying, this beer is *slightly* outside of the normal realm of Saison’s in my opinions (it’s got some phenol character that one might associate with a tripel), but it does fit at the edge of the style and it is a nice beer.
