3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Brewers Art. The pour is a clear orange with a small, white head. No lace. Aroma is floral, candy heavy, honey, noble hops (mild lemon and sickliness). Taste is lightly bitter, sharp carbonation distracting, with biscuit, quenching malt and citrusy balancing hops. Not sure on style but comes across not as refreshing or yeasty as saison but more full and malty like Biere de Garde.

Some spice and floral notes on the nose. Pours golden yellow mixed with a few drops of coca-cola. Nice burst of flavor on the tongue. I’m getting a nice exploration of the spice rack but subtle. Finishes clean. Refreshing.
