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.

A nice, easy drinking beer with a little bit of richness to round it out. Fruity, slightly nutty, with a light spiciness to make things interesting.

12oz can. From Perfect Pour? Probably, but I don’t remember. Mostly clear, mildly hazy yellow color. Pours with a bigger foamy 2-finger white head, initially, but fades to minimal eventually, leaving only loose lace. Banana, spice in the nose. Some belgian yeast, good citrus. Medium to bigger body. Kind of slick texture. Kind of soft, light to moderate carbonation. Moderate sweet, moderate spiciness. Light bitterness. Alright, zesty belgian ale.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can: Thanks, Chris. Pale & clear, the color of an unripe pear with a chunky, big-bubbled white head that takes a long time to recede by any appreciable amount. Mild cereal grain aroma with a nice, underlying tart apple & pear skin element. Just a touch of Belgian-y yeast, hinting at mild bubblegum & spice. Taste is crisp & also more yeast-heavy than the aroma; lots of apparent Belgian yeast, clove, bubblegum, leading into a mid-palate bitterness in the form of earthy & mildly musky hops. Moderate notes of apple skin & white grape give off a slight tartness but nothing extreme; earth-laden, faintly astringent finish, dry & crisp. Nothing to lose your head over, but still a nice, drinkable Belgian influenced brew. Working Class Ale is a good way to classify it.
