3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
750ml served in a Duvel tulip.
A - Pours a hazy brass golden color with 2 fingers of airy white foam. Melts pretty quick with zero lacing.
S - Pungent grassy hops, musty onions, spicy floral, dirty hay, grapefruit and lemon citrus, dry white wine, it’s a very complex and savory aroma. Once warmed up a bit the aroma turns sharp and has more of a pungent potpourri smell going on.
T - Starts off with spicy floral hops with wild onion patch bite, very earthy grassy flavors that are cut by a clean citrus zest, there’s almost a saltiness to it as well. The malt is subtle and I wouldn’t have known it was floor malted if it wasn’t on the label. Finishes spicy with a very dry finish. Notes of lemon and herbs on the aftertaste.
M - Spritzy carbonation, medium body, carbonation drops off a little quick.
One of the best single malt/hop beers I’ve had. This beer is very complex and pulls flavors and aromas that I’ve never experienced in one beer before. Well done.
This paired very well with spicy artichoke dip.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy straw in appearance with a white, fizzling head. Danky, musty aroma. Sweet, fermenting grain flavor with a dose of yeastiness and citrusy hops though the backbone stays like like a pilsner malt. Strong bite and cool, spring water body.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ML cork and cage. Pours a hazy golden hue with a medium, quickly dissipating head. Nose is HUGE grapefruit rind, tons of citrus, nice saison yeast notes as well, pepper, coriander. Flavor is lightly spicy, some phenolic/brett notes (barnyard, must, funk), little bit of pineapple, the nelson gives some great grapefruit/tropical fruit characteristic. Bone dry, tongue drying mouthfeel with high carbonation. Great beer, insanely complex. Send more down to Texas!
