4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at the Birch. A beautiful goblet of solid orange. This presents a nice tropical fruit aroma right up front, bursting with a character of tropical fruit -- pineapple and mandarin orange. There’s a subtle "wild side" to let you know this is a farmhouse saison, but it’s subtle enough that a fan of a fruity delight would not be distracted. Very fun and refreshing beer.
