We’ve been hard at work on a recipe that includes – you guessed it – seven different grains. Let’s see if I can name them all: barley, wheat, rice, oats, corn, rye and...spelt. Yep, I think that’s it. The result is a perfect summer beer. It’s about 5% ABV and displays a nice fruity yeast character that finishes dry and slightly hoppy. It’s seven kinds of wonderful!

2nd rating. Poured a light orange color with 1/2 inch thick head. Aroma was fruity with some cloves and spices. Taste was fruity as well, very dry and mildly hoppy. Medium body. Overall very refreshing. I enjoyed this.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: The pour is a golden orange color with a moderate white head and a touch of lacing.
S: The rice and rye come through the strongest of all of the grains used in this one. The rye provides some front end spiciness and the corn dominates the back end.
T: A very bready saison without too much in the way of spice or "farmhouse" character. The wheat really stands out here despite its absence in the nose. The finish is lightly bitter with some nice hop earthiness.
M: Light to medium in terms of body with a fairly lively level of carbonation.
D: The strong corn aroma was a bit off-putting to me, but luckily the flavor made up for it. Saisons are a hit or miss style for me, so this was one of the rare middle ground examples.
