Notes/Commercial Description:
E is definitely not a Belgian IPA - it's a funky version of Edward (american pale ale) - fermented with brettanomyces, dry hopped with galaxy, and aged on stainless for four months. Basically, we refer to it as a farmhouse pale ale - a cross between a saison and an american pale.

2012 Release: Aged in Mimosa barrels.
2014 Release: Aged in wine barrels with resident yeast and microfloa for 1.5 years.

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

Pours a finger of white head. Leaves a lot of lace. Color is a hazed sunset golden orange.

Aroma: A little bit of hops. Some floral notes and then the saison funk in the background. A lot of spices. Bready malts. Fruity flavors. Pepper.

Taste: More crushed pepper. Floral hops. Grapefruit and lemons. Very fruity. Bone dry.

Mouthfeel: Dry, bitter, sticky. Hop resiny. Tons of hops. Medium bodied with a higher amount of carbonation. Ends sticky.

Overall, a really good beer. A really hoppy saison. Pretty drinkable. Definitely enjoyed this one.

Serving type: bottle
