3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy straw-orange body, large white head, spotty lacing. Light citrus and crackery malts in the nose give way to a stronger flavor profile showing off citric notes, grass, a light oaky vanilla, some bretty must and earth. Medium bodied with moderate carbonations and a super dry finish. Fairly intense flavor profile at only 4.5% ABV. Interesting.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Tired Hands. In my mind, this is how a saison should taste. Slightly malty and oaky, but light enough to drink on the porch when the weather gets nice.
