3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Received as an extra from a trading partner on BA. Thanks a bunch Phil! Pours a cloudy light brown/nickel in color with a finger and a halfs worth of off-white head. Some light, gentle lacing as I drink. Nose is typical saison yeast, dry, grassy, and some very light tartness. I like the flavor a lot more than the nose. The flavor starts of light and airy, nice tartness, and then moves to some light malt typical in an amber. Light mouthfeel, moderate carbonation, light tartness, and a moderate finish. Nice saison, can definitely tell the hill farmstead influence here.
