3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
> Ultra dry, blonde, floral and orange juicy true saison
[ Bottle ][ 750mL ][ Trade ][ Trade ][ Tired Hands Stemware ][ 7.12.14 ]
>> Low haze straw pour, good carbonation, small head, spotty lace. Nose is grassy hoppy, orange juice, flowers, flash of soy, nice golden smoked character as well, surprising. Taste is bone dry, a tad papery, plus very hoppy making it astringent. But it is fairly nice and the aroma is spot on saison with house yeast. Much better than when released.
