4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
In short: A juicy dry-hopped blonde Saison. Superb little simple beer
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Almost clear blonde body topped by a long-lasting small white head with good lacing
In long: Nose shows quit a bit of dry hopping with citrusy and floral hops juice that dominates the rustic yeast notes. Taste has nice chewy bready malts and the juicy attack turns into a dry finish making for a great sessionnable ale. Lively carbonation. It might be a bit too dry-hopped to be compared to a classic Belgian Saison but this is a superior example of the dry-hopped American take on the style. I had a lot of beer and a lot of pizza at Flatbread on that day again. I don’t want to brag or make anybody jealous, but despite all the beer and food I’ve had over the years I can still fit into the wristwatch I wore in high school.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at BT> Pours a mostly hazed light copper/ orange with a nice frothy head. Aroma is full of dank weedy hops, with some citrus and pine- columbus-like hops with some citra tangerine character- then spicy phenols, a bit of earth and grass with light crackery malts. Flavor is light bready toasted malts, then mostly big citrusy american hops, spicy, then phenolic, and a moslty cleaner weaker than expected finish, but still pretty good.
