Just wasn't feeling it. Floral and citrus flavors with a bit of spice but it wasn't appealing my taste buds as it left an odd grassy aftertaste.

Poured a lemony gold with lots of free flowing bubbles. Creamy and bumpy white head, but if was gone pretty quick. Funky apple, sweet and sour aroma; spice phenols really dominate from there on out. Very altruistic and light, semi dry feel. Tart and quite peppery. Sweet outweighs sour. General berry, starfruit, banana, honeydew.

on tap in North Adams. Probably unfair to rate a drinkable, mild beer so low; but I want some kind of funky character to my saison and this didn't get my attention: just went well with a burger.
