3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Taster on tap at Wicked Weed during RBWG. Almost entirely hazy orange golden color. Thin off-white head. Smooth, citrusy, grapefruity hop aroma. Good spicy hop / malt character. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, lighter carbonation. More dry texture. Zesty sweet taste, kind of spicy. Some sugar sweet taste, a light bitterness. Solid, zesty, hoppy saison but for me it’s a bit spicy and citrusy zesty, kind of out of balance. Good still, though
