[Bottle purchased at the brewery tasting room]
Appearance: pale straw to gold, slight haze, medium layer of pure white fine-beaded foam, decent head retention
Aroma: chamomile tea, braeburn apples, sun-warmed strawberries, wheat, honey, and band-aids
Flavor: light maltiness like a wheat cracker or a slice of fresh-baked bread; the yeast phenolics are subdued hints of clove; mild acidity; touch of lemon and grassy hops; finishes dry with a tartness and lingering herbal note
Mouthfeel: light body, pert carbonation, crisp texture
Other comments: This is like Saison Dupont's little sister or something. Or if Saison Dupont moved to the US and had a baby with an American hefeweizen. Really looking to Six and Seven being released in bottles.
Serving type: bottle

Got this one on tap at the brewery. I walked there from my house. I love living in Portland!
There wasn't a lot of head on it -- foamy and low and it dissipated pretty quickly. The appearance is great: very pale, cloudy (opaque) yellow/straw colored.
The smell is bright, fresh, lemony, spicy… flavors of lemony, spices like coriander, and straw to match the appearance. It's a little bit soapy.
The flavor matches, with a little funkiness from the hops. There's some sweetness in the body but it finishes fairly dry.
I'm a pretty big fan. I wish this was more available in standard 12oz bottles. This is a great spring/summer beer.
Serving type: on-tap
