I wish I could, but the styles don't do it for me. Hennepin is OK, but I'm not a big saison fan. Their abbey ale is pretty good though.

If I am gonna drink maibock in May....I better put one on the yeast cake...like....Tomorrow!
2 - Franziskaner - this one was second. Very similar to the Schneider in flavor and color, but the flavors were a little less strong and this one was a bit lighter in color.
this one has always seemed to be a lot better on tap than from the bottle for me. YMMV.
I hate the green bottles. I cant get over the mental thought of a skunky hefe.
Yea...I'd let that stuff age for at least a year, two would be better. It's probably going to taste similiar to an apple wine. I have a cider at 11%ABV that's about a year and a few months that is spot on right now.
Regardless, most people lager their lagers way too long. A doppelbock .... yeah, I can see 6 months on that one. A Marzen, although at one point in time was lagered for 6 months probably needs no more that 6 weeks. But you need to take a taste to see. It could be that at 6 months lagering it is past its prime!
Can I get an AMEN!
I would like to hear the result when available
I'm experimenting with Halcyon for the first time on Monday morning. Looking forward to it!
I used it. It smelled like semi-sweet corn. Nothing bad about it. I tasted a piece and it seemed fine, not bad tasting at all. It was vacuum packed and sealed.
Should be bready, malty with a hint of toast. With more malt complexity the darker it gets.
