COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mary of the Gael Saison-Style Farmhouse Ale. Spring Saison. St. Brigidís Day (AKA Mary of the Gael) is celebrated in Ireland at the time of the Imbolic, a once pagan celebration of "Summer in the belly of winter." This release in our series of seasonal saisons is a refreshingly hoppy take on saison for springtime. Mary of the Gael has a simple base of pilsener malt, a touch of honey malt and is dry-hopped with a copious amount of floral hops.

popery (1879) - San Francisco, California, USA - OCT 30, 2015
The beer is a bright yellow gold color. Itís fairly clear at least in this initial pour from the bottle. Huge, puffy, white head. Gobs of bubbles stick to the glass. Good retention. The aroma is big on green apples with some raisin, pepper, grapes, a little lemon and mild orange juice. Thereís a light to medium medicinal note. Itís bright and fairly clean for all of that but still a bit of mess to me. A good bit of simple malt character, not particularly well executed. The taste is mildly sweet. I think this beer would be significantly better if it was drier. The sweetness is simple and not too oppressive, but the overall package has far too messy of a Belgian yeast profile. Bitter finish. Medium-light mouthfeel with some slickness. I expected a light, fresh saison, but this is more like a mediocre Belgian table beer. The flavors donít sit right or go together particularly well.
