3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Errl. The pour is this rusty orange color with a fluffy off-white head that settles down as a thin layer. This smells funky and fruity, with peach, tangerine, kiwi, and grapefruit coming to mind. There’s light yeastiness along with notes of straw and barnyard hay. The flavors are tart, crisp, and a bit dry. It’s light-bodied and quite refreshing; dusty yeast, straw notes, and tropical fruit. There’s a bit of oak barrel character in the background with something resembling a light white wine. I can’t say I pick up the whiskey barrel, though. The finish is dry and palate cleansing, leaving me ready for another sip. At first I thought this was a touch too light and thin, but as I work through it I really don’t think that’s the case. As it warms it seems to come together a little more. I like it’s light, delicate nature, and the drinkability is off the charts, making it a winner in the Florida sun.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours hazy golden yellow with a big white head. The nose is light lemons, grapefruit, some peach and pineapple, light hay straw and some bread. The taste is medium sweet and low medium sour with low bitter. Kinda boring though, I expected more. The texture is soft, the body is medium and the finish is long.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at CBC, pours a hazy golden with an insanely white head -- problem with the keg. Aroma of light funky notes, farmhouse notes, an yeast -- very saisony. Flavour of lightly tart farmhouse notes, light citrus, and wheat. Very light and refreshing, with a lightly tart citric quality. Great stuff.

Från fat på CBC 2013. En lätt saison som inte kompromissar med smaken. Snäll, lätt syra, torr, citrus, lite läder, en liten honungstouch. Lättdrucken, rena fina smaker. Inga spår av whiskeylagringen. Ett riktigt sympatisk öl.
