Draft from St. Gambrinus. Cloudy, pale hay color in glass. Smell is french bread, lemon zest, and well kept barn. Earthy. A little funk. Taste has some pepper, but mostly a pleasant yeastiness with citrus brightness. Bitterness is there, but does not linger. Light on the palate.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The Sampler, Brooklyn tap: Pours a very hazy, almost whitish golden with a white head. Aroma is slight funk with fruitiness and strange grains. I don’t really know what spelt is supposed to be about, but this comes off as a nice saison with small amounts of funk, but a hefty amount of fruitiness, with just a bit of spice.

Pours slightly hazy golden with a tiny white lacing. Aroma is citrus with some bready notes. Great fresh taste, lemon, wheat, I guess spelt, some bitterness kicks in and then mellows out. Good yeasty malty finish. Refreshing and enjoyable.
