COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This brew is a shout-out to the alter ego in each of us, beckoning it out of dormancy. Porter, brewery president, left his career as an attorney to heed the call of his weekend passion, making beer. He and friends, also consumed by beer, established Smartmouth in 2012. This farmhouse-style Belgian saison is an effervescent and refreshing beer with fruity notes, a hint of pepper and a dry finish.

Cybercat (5661) - Georgia, USA - JUN 4, 2016
Pours clear solar yellow with a thick porcelain head. Aroma delivers yeasty and fruity notes. Flavor delivers even more fruit, banana and pear and a bit of mango, with malty and hoppy hints. Body is OK, so is fizz. To take the edge off a sweltering day - a good thing what with climate change.

Can provided at campfire by BTL. Yay. Busy can. Farmhouse lite. Or maybe baby farmstand. While thirst quenching and punchy, the body is a skoash underwhelming and spices and yeast tone are as well. Meeker than I prefer, but then again, I am spoiled by Hutch.
