This was poured from a can at home in a tulip glass. It has a lemony and herbal aroma, reminiscent of Brooklyn’s Sorachi Ace. Pours hazy gold with a nice head. Light sweetness with mild bitterness coupled with light sourness such as one would expect from a Farmhouse ale are present. A bit dry and has a bitter finish. Overall, this is a very nice beer that I will definitely buy again.

Nice saison, or grissette, or whatever we’re calling these hay and citrus farm ales these days. Pours cloudy golden with great head and lacing. Light floral yeast. Hay and citrus indeed. Light sour finish and note of funk. Tap at Black Squirrel.
