Tidal Series.
Cloud Cover is inspired by the rustic ales of old world Belgium and is meant to be dry and refreshing yet still full of complexity. It honors the farmhouse brewing tradition while incorporating modern Sorachi Ace hops a varietal not available a hundred years ago, but a perfect complement to the style. Saison yeast ferments a malt bill of imported pilsner, red wheat, and rye for subtle notes of earthy, peppery spice. Both sweet and Curacao orange peel in the boil make for bright citrus flavors and we add touch of coriander in tribute to traditional witbiers. The bold lemon flavors and aromas of the Sorachi hops add a new dimension. Light in body, dry and refreshing, Cloud Cover is the perfect match for outdoor dining or any activity as the days get longer and warmer.

bnokk (526) - Lee, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 14, 2016
APPEARANCE- bright yellow with some cloudiness. Nearly no head. NOSE- light aroma of a wheat beer. Very light spice. No hop is noticed. FLAVOR- also nice and light, wheat beer. A bit of spice comes through again. But its mostly just wheat. NOTES- This beer is exactly what they say it is. A wheat beer. Im pleased with that.

On tap at brewery. Hazy orange yellow. Ever so pilsenery. Light and wheaty with slight skunkiness. Belgian edge. Lemony. As a picnic beer this would be pretty good.

beerbomb (226) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 30, 2014
aroma has hay, lemon, vanilla, grass, and pepper with a little nuttiness almost coconut as well as some nice spicy/floral hops - flavor is lighter - not too much funkiness, but very smooth - diverse malt flavors and yeast with a good hop profile make this very drinkable - definitely worth a try if you want a lighter flavorful wit with good hops

Brewery draft. Bright candied lemon color with a white head. Lemongrass, honey, mint, yeast, bitter, pear, apple. Light crisp palate with a bit of a harsh aftertaste. -- something seemed to be missing in the body and taste. Pretty good but I wouldnt get this one again.

lachrymalisis (441) - Washington, USA - NOV 13, 2013
satisfying as a less spicy witbier or a simple wheat-heavy saison. decent bitterness on the back but up front it leaves a bit to be desired. still, good clean beer.
