3.45/5 rDev +1.5%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Pours a chill hazed amber with a finger of cream colored head. Never clears, average lacing & traces of head retention
S: Appleskins, wet cereal, & some pineapple
T: Follows the nose, some pear notes, slight pineapple flavor along with passion fruit up front. Golden delicious apples & white grape as this warms, some dryness & lemon peel as well, some phenolic notes too. Finishes with grapefruit bitterness, juicy fruit & with smatteering of tropical & orchard fruit & slight sourness/tartness
MF: Medium bodied, slght carbonation
Drinks fine, the ABV is fairly well hidden, a passable saison, but a one & done for me. Glad I tried it, but not memorable by any stretch of the imagination
Serving type: bottle

Had on tap at Max's (from notes)
A: Copper with light lacing.
S: Lots of yeast and farmhouse scents. Wet blanket.
T: A bit of funk with subtle citrus but mostly farmhouse. Subdued odd earthy flavors/aftertaste.
M: Nice and prickly. Coarse bubbly.
O: I think the earthiness came from the prickly pear.
Serving type: on-tap
