3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Solid saison with some light brett funk. The beer is a medium-light amber-orange. It’s quite cloudy. Big, puffy white head. Solid lacing. The aroma is dusty and earthy. Some light stone fruit funk. Fresh grain maltiness, a bit doughy. A touch of lemon rind. Everything is nice enough, but it doesn’t too much to stand out from the crowd of saisons. Taste has nice malt sweetness, a good bit of funk, mild but growing bitterness and a satisfyingly dry finish. The grassy bitterness cuts through the malt nicely. There’s a little bit of citrus and some juicier tropical flavor in the finish. The beer doesn’t get bone dry but cleans up the malt sugariness well enough. The yeast character is earthy and funky but a bit restrained. There’s a peppery flavor spicing up the dusty backbone. It’s a nice saison-ish beer. Medium light feel. Goes down easily.
