Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BEERMILER12 on 07-24-2013

This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Brewed with a new friend, Kjetil Jikiun, founder and brewer at Nogne-O. Our aim was to brew a delicate, sessionable beer incorporating elements of the saison and hoppy American ale styles. We used a blend of our house ale and saison yeast strains. The result, an ale, golden in color, generously hopped, with background notes of saison funk accented by soft rye and wheat flavors.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Bottled 7/16/13 so its only 10 days old. appearance is golden/orange and hazy with a thick bubbly white head leaving nice lace.
aroma is of citrus and spice, nothing groundbreaking but its right on.
taste is initial grapefruit followed by a blend of grain/cereal and saison yeast blended nicely with the spicy pepper character of rye. the grapefruit hop flavor is really strong on the initial sip but after subsequent sips it all balances out into a easy drinking beer that is rather quaffable. pretty damn good on a summer day (527 characters)

A: Pours a hazy golden yellow color with a fingers worth of head that fades to a cap within a minute or two

S: Saison yeast imparts some nice fruity esters and the hops provide a solid citrus note. Get a very light rye spiciness in the back, as well as some wheat

T: The rye comes through a bit more here, along with the saison yeast and citrusy hops. Spicy, fruity, and citrusy notes all meld together into the finish, which is quite bitter and wheaty

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Lightly chalky and dry from the start

O: A solid collaboration. Definitely a hoppy saison with a nice rye compliment. I feel like they hit the nail on the head with what they were going for on this one, as it definitely has the hoppiness of an APA to go along with the esters from the saison yeast (824 characters)
