4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at Jerry’s. Hazy yellow with good, creamy, white head, decent legs /Fresh, bright, fruity nose of citrus & tropical fruit, straw, spice / Medium body, a touch thin, fruity and lightly sweet, turning nicely bitter, with overall fine balance / Elegant flavors of lemon, pear, banana, straw, coriander, clove / Small deduction for a little water to the body, but all in all an excellent summer brew.

From bottle. Clear light straw color huge fluffy white head that lasts for ever. Big floral hop aroma light yeast and malt. Not super bitter. Light body and taste. Sweet flowery taste. Good summer beer but not as assertive as I hoped.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sharply grassy, floral citrus and yeast aroma, in the vein of a sourish saison. Massive sea foam head over thick yellow body. Man is it zesty. Esters and floral hops dominate the senses. Crisp and dry. Ommegang...Even the summer offering is a kicker.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Head is initially large, frothy/foamy, white, mostly lasting.
Body is hazy medium yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (flowers, herbs), lightly to moderately yeasty (basement), with notes of lemon rind, gum, pepper, alcohol (rather fusel, bug spray).
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter.
Light to medium body, watery texture, lively/fizzy carbonation, lightly alcoholic.
Quite good for this brewery. It has a fusel taint, unfortunately, but it’s not strong and it’s really the only notable fault I find with it. A little watery and thin, but suitable for easy-drinkin’. Brightly aromatic and not just a hop bomb (and the hops aren’t the raw-and-resinous type). Good balance as well.
