This is my second Pretty Things bomber... my sister rec'd this based on her friends, doubt gone after the first one, let's see the Saison they're making in Westport:

A: Less carbonated than the textbook saison beers have. Visually I honestly enjoy watching the inconsistent but vigorous bubbles coming up. You can't beat a beer that keeps you entertained by the bubbles.

S: It's just great. It's like saison dupont with a touch more hops and much more concise overall. It just feels "delicate" and it takes the palette "places."

T: I just think that commercial wheat/hefe's are useful for refreshment, but you could drink a dozen and not feel like you had a beer... a good farmhouse hits the refreshment factor but also leaves the palette satiated. I know the masses wouldn't "get" this beer, but someday....

M: Enough alcohol to make me know I have something in my hand. Perfect for the style.

O: 100% worth tracking down if your in MA. I wish I had bought more, they were not expensive either.

Poured from a bomber into a shaker pint, the beer is a bright, slightly hazed, heavily carbonated, golden-maize coloring with a tall, frothy, white, clingy head. Aromas of lemon peel, clove, and pepper on a biscuit backbone with some fruity highlights. Well balanced aromas. Flavors are roasty and spicy on the forward tongue, with a tart citrus backbone. All-spice, nutmeg, and grains of paradise, with tart lemon and grapefruit notes all blending together very well. Roasty overlays, with a tangy mouthfeel. The body is light, and remains crisp with the flavor profiles and the carbonation. Smooth, slightly filmy finish, with spicy lingerings. Very soild brew, and a great representation of the style.
