4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at Farmers’ Cabinet.
Pours a cloudy golden yellowish-orange color with a two finger frothy white head that slowly fades into a lasting ring. Streaks of soapy lacing coat the glass.
Musty, spicy aroma with a nice balance of farmhouse funk, earthy hops and sweet fruits. Hints of bready yeast, pepper, pineapple, orange zest and lemon peel as well as a faint pale malt presence.
Slightly chewy and much fuller than expected with a strong saison/farmhouse funk up front that’s quickly countered by a complex hop profile. Earthy grass, straw, light fruit and zesty, peppery spice followed by grassy, piney hops before finishing sweet with lots of grapefruit and orange zest. Just a touch herbal with a sweet yet dry finish. The ABV is invisible, making it extremely drinkable. Really nice saison/ ipa hybrid.
