4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2014 Draft at Perennial for the Side Project release, served in a stemmed wine-style glass (roughly the same shape and size of those Goose Island glasses). Pours a cloudy bright gold color with a tiny white ring for a head. Aroma of farmhouse funk, lemon, herbs, grass, bready malts, oak, white wine, and spice. Flavor hits most of the same notes: wine, oak, bready malts, grass and herbs and spices, and a nice farmhouse-style funkiness throughout. Light-medium bodied, with a tart, funky mouthfeel and moderate to medium carbonation. So nice, bright, fresh, tart, and funky. A world-class saison.
