bomber into 2012 SAVOR tulip.

A: a very hazy orange hued brew. head is white and bubbly. retention is good, but not much lacing.

S: very fruity nose. reminds me of citra hops. bubblegum. however, there are a lot of aspects that bring saison to mind as well. a little barny, but rather subtle. grapefruit.

T: the rye lends a serious spicy note throughout the drink. a minor vanilla flavor. kiwi. im assuming the fruit on the nose and palate are lent from the yeast mostly. black pepper. finish is very dry.

M: the carb is pretty big, but i dont think it detracts from the brew. medium body flavor on a light bodied ABV.

D: very drinkable. enough flavor to make it easy to revisit the glass will still being very crushable and manageable. worth trying.

Thanks merc.

The beer pours a hazy amber orange with a thin white head that fades quickly. The nose is spicy, grainy, citrus hoppy, and distinct. It's a very unique smelling beer that takes me by surprise. The taste is veerryyy grainy, distinctly rye based with additional wheat for back up. The spice profile compliments the rye, although I'm not certain exactly what spices they used...As stated, this is an unexpectedly tasty beer that packs a huge rye punch. It's completely worth trying again and I'll seek out bottles in the future.

Pours a pretty opaque orange. Nice white head to start settles to a thin ring of bubbles pretty quickly. Very spotty lacings at the top of the glass.

Bright sunny hops on the nose. Mostly lemon zest, bit of cat's pee (yeah, I said it). Light yeast floating around in the back.

That zest kicks things off, right up front. Big juicy hit of citrus doesn't really give up, but you are able to gradually pick out nice peppery spice and dusty Belgian yeast. Such an interesting malt profile with pronounced rye, barley, and wheat. Hops are a littley clingy in the finish. Citrus zing bring you back for another sip.

A really great American saison. Simple hop profile contrasts really well with a complex malt backbone. Love it.
