3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale golden amber pour. The nose is softly spicy and a little bit fruity. Some soft peppery nose and a touch of light malt and sweet fruit. The nose is a little bit fruity and somewhat sweet but the palate is lighter than the nose would suggest. Light bodied and fresh with a decent palate. A bit light and lean. Some light crackery character from the malts. Nice.

Bottle poured into glass. Not sure how many hop forwards beers I’ve had from RR, maybe 2, but this is a great easy drinking hoppy beer. Nice floral hoppy aroma, same goes for the flavor. Not sure why this is under the saison category.

Pours a cloudy gold with a white head and lacing. It has a great aroma of hoppy grapefruit, grass, some malt and yeast. The flavor is light, with some hops and malt up front and a slightly spicy middle and mild finish.
