Spiced (or rather ’herbed’) saison-style ale made in collaboration of three of America’s big and very influential names in the world of craft breweries, bottle at 77ships’s place, cheers. Thick, frothy, egg-white, stable head, hazy peach blonde robe with orangey tinge. Aroma of wet leather, unripe peach, green peppercorns, parsley, damp hay, stale urine but not in a bad way, soap, green tea, camomile, turnip - with thyme, rosemary and sage effectuating a ’dry green’ herbal note but hardly distinguishable from one another. Crisp fruity onset, peachy and pineapple-like sweetish notes, sourish touch as well, softish carbo, supple mouthfeel; bready maltiness sustains an earthy presence of the green herbs as well as something green tea-like in the finish, mildly bittering. Accomplished, no surprise seen its pedigree, and way more pleasant than expected based on the list of herbs - though I think adding four different ones is a bit unnecessary. pintbypint (3640) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 18, 2017

355ml Bottle - Light amber in colour. Peach, rosemary, thyme and lemon in the aroma. Herbal and fairly sweet taste with notes of Earl Grey tea, lemon and thyme standing out. Nice at first but becomes a bit sickly after a while. 77ships (9827) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 16, 2017
