3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
750, corked and baled. Thanks, Melissa! Pours a hazy pale gold with a towering, sudsy, brilliant white head and tons of surging nucleation columns. A picture-perfect saison. Loose strings of eggy lace on the sides of the glass. Bright grassy, floral, lemony nose; appealing and decently complex. Could be a tiny bit crisper. Rich fizzy farmhouse body, nice presence. Grass, floral, hay, and lemon notes on the mid-palate. Mild tangy finish. Nice saison.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sweet estery nose with notes of honey, wheat, and a little feety funk. Hazy golden orange brown pour, no head or lace. The flavor is wheaty with notes of yeasty esters, black pepper, honey, earthy notes, a touch of hay and bread. Light alcohol notes. Lingering wheaty notes, light esters, a little bitterness. Interesting beer with noticeable honey presence throughout. This beer changes throughout the experience and is nice.
