Cask at the brewery. Hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma is quite fruity with some lychee and grape notes, as well as some light citrus. The flavor is also very nice. I get some pepper notes from the grains of paradise, as well as some light, subtle lychee. There is also some Belgian yeast in the flavor, as well as some biscuit malt. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2014 Draught > Inwood Tavern. Not a good representation of the style. Too hoppy and not spicy enough. Also not dry enough for a saison. Now I know another reason why I don’t like Lakewood’s Hop Trappe. It’s the yeast. This obviously uses the same. I just don’t like the overly fruity flavor it imparts. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone TizzleJizzle (792) - Garland, Texas, USA - JUN 8, 2013
On cask at the brewery. Hazy golden pour, with a white head. Taste of wheat, lychee, spice, and pepper. They put too many grains of paradise in there. Medium carbonation, medium watery body. I prefer the original.
