A beer named Freefall?? This must be fate.

This is a highly citric saison. Lots of lemon. Almost seems like it could be reaching into Berliner Weisse territory, but the sour isn't really there. Well, maybe just a wee bit of funk. Seems highly carbonated. Very much a hot weather beer. And I like the 2.5% abv.

Serving type: growler

Pours a hazy neon yellow with a thin white head. Aroma of sweet fruit, apricot, peach, apple, tart wheat malt. Flavor of light wheat malt, light fruits, just a touch of sour apple but it’s pretty subtle. While the aroma is very fruity, sweet, and a touch sour, the flavor is light, with emphasis on the malt as well as lightly fruity/slightly sour notes. A very refreshing and drinkable beer.

Served on-tap at Al's of Hampden.

A - Pours pale, hazy yellow with a fizzy one finger tall white head leaving spotty trails of lace down parts of the glass. Looks like a wheat beer, a bit lighter than a normal saison.

S - Smells of fruity saison yeast, bready grain, black pepper spice and a bit of grassy hops. The saison core is strong, but not overpowering, from start to finish.

T - Starts off with some soft, chewy malt quickly giving way to the fruity saison core with a good amount of peppery spice. Finish is a little chewy with some lingering spice, leaving the palate dried long after the finish. It packs lots of flavor in a small package.

M - Light body with moderate carbonation. Smooth, slightly spicy feel with a bit of chewiness at the end of each sip. Super easy drinking beer.

O - A very nice table strength saison. It packs all of the flavors you want from a saison yet it's only 2.5% so it goes down super easy. I could drink a few glasses of this on a hot day no problem.
