3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
4oz pour at the Fare. This was a treat. Aroma of banana, lemon, cornmeal, and barnyard. Pours really murky with a weird peach blonde color, almost like an unfiltered apple cider. Taste is lemon zest, barnyard, banana, slight nutmeg, and pepper. Very light and nice with some kickass taste. Reminds me of a really well-made grissette.

Bottle... Hazy light-yellow pour with a small, creamy, white head. Decent retention. The bouquet is a spicy, grainy fusion of coriander, wheat and grains of paradise. Medium-bodied with jazzy carbonation. The flavor is almost painfully bitter with only a trace of acidity. Bone-dry finish. Bottle courtesy of biggsbowler!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the source last weekend, and then served from a growler into a Forest & Main pint glass.
Pours a clear golden with visible carbonation. Nice white head with a good retention time and nice lacing on the way down. The nose is slightly grainy and backed by a bit of pepper and spice. The flavor is crisp and grainy, backed with subtle spice and yeast notes.
Light body and fairly-heavy carbonation. Really easy to drink. Mild, but fantastic for the session saison that it is.
