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.

Poured into my Tired Hands stem.

Pours a bright, yet hazy orange. Huge fluffy head settles to some soap sud-esque film leaving spotty lacing down the glass.

Smells great....mostly citrus rind and maybe a touch of a pine.

Taste follows through, fresh citrus with a little bitterness at the end. There was an odd aftertaste that I noticed, I can't really describe it except to say it was just a little off.

Mouthfeel is great on this beer. It is medium bodied and slightly creamy. Pretty impressive for the low ABV.

Overall this is really a fine beer. I'm really loving these low ABV, flavor filled beers that are popping up more and more....VT seems to be leading the way in thi area.
