I picked up this beer in a growler during a visit to the brewery with some friends.
Sampling at cellar temp into a snifter, this beer pours a slightly hazy copper color with bleached white head foaming up several cm before fading gradually to a sturdy edge layer and some wispy islands. The growler gave a pretty good pop upon opening with a little CO2 fog coming out of the top.
Aroma is fairly hoppy, which I didnt anticipate,with some grass, pine sap and general vegetal notes. I also get a bit of musty funk and maybe a little white grape. The nose is pretty complex and I find it appealing, not overwhelming.
The first sip reveals a light to average body with with a smooth texture and almost cask like carbonation.
Flavor is a bit grainy and maybe slightly tart but then goes for some grassy hops and finishes very dry and musty blanket funk after each swallow. A complex ride of flavors with no real hits of booze and the dry finish keeps me coming back for additional sips.
This is a complex and funky saison that I enjoy and would recommend, what I dont know is if it is a regular offering at Pizza Boy or not. If you like the style and see the beer, you should give it a shot.
