Smells of lemon hey apples. A beautiful bright zesty yellow color. Tasted slightly sour some lemon with some floral notes try finish. Medium body light crisp carbonation. Quite a refreshing beer good for any time of the year. Great work.

Gleefully blurring the line between Saison and Wheat Ale, Cellar Door borrows a bit from each style and brings loads of spice to the equation with notes of clove, white sage, and white pepper. The herbaceous influences are mellowed by citrusy, tropical tastes and a funky, fruity nose. Lately I’ve been pretty thrilled with the Saisons and Sours I’ve tasted that have infused savory herbs with big yeast strains. For me, Cellar Door took it to a new level. Beautifully done.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: hazy straw with one fat finger of fluffy white head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim, minimal lacing. (3/5) Aroma: dry straw, lemon zest, bready yeast, herbal, stone fruit, grassy. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, mild bitter, mild tart. (8/10) Palate: medium body, moderate-high carbonation, dry mildly bitter and tart finish. (4/5)
An interesting blend of hops and herbs give this a unique aroma. The herbs (sage) build on the tongue and gradually become more prevalent as the beer progresses, but never become unbalanced or overwhelming. I initially found it a touch too sweet, but as the bitter and spice grow in the finish, this is less and less of a problem. A very nice beer. (16/20)
