Tap. Pours hazy amber, small white head, decent lacing. Aroma is grapefruit, lemon, mango, yeast. Flavor about the same, fruity and a bit herbal, light sweet, minimal bitterness, dry finish. Light body.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy yellow with a slight swirly head. Aroma was of lemon and pepper. Taste was very acidic between the high hops and the citrus but the amount of alcohol and low carbonation really cut the sourness. Very enjoyable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft courtesy of Greg and the Churchkey crew, plus Dave and Mike from 3 Stars - thank you gentlemen! It was a cask of the new B.W. Rye #3 with citra hops and lemon pel added. The appearance was very cloudy gold with a large bubble white head that settles to an edge. The aroma is fresh lemons, but it isn’t overpowering like some citra-hopped beers. The taste is dusty lemons, earth, with a bit of barnyard. A proper saison, very nice.
