4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Purchased 750 ML bottle at BevMo in Redding, CA. APPEARANCE / THE POUR: Medium light golden color, with 2-finger rocky head, excellent Brussels lace. AROMA / BOUQUET: Very similar to a Saison- it has that fresh grass, fresh sourdough bread smell, yeasty, granny smith green apples. Has a bit of the brett funk smell to it. TASTE: Nice hoppy / sour balance- great astringent cidery character to it. Fresh herbs, I don’t get the slight sweetness that some people say that is in this beer... it tastes like a good example of the French Biere De Garde style. MOUTHFEEL / PALATE: Great fizziness, carbonation that hits the nose while swallowing. Great aftertaste, hop balance / sourness that hits the entire mouth. OVERALL: This beer exceeded my expectations... I will buy this again! Blessings and honor to this one!!

Pours pink/yellow with thick white head. Smell is stone fruit - mainly peach and cherry with mild bread. Taste is similar. Mildly sweet but not annoyingly so. Hides 7% well. Refreshing. Mouthfeel medium. Overall very enjoyable
