1734th Review on BA
Bottle champagne flute
Shared with my coworker Antti
App- A nice and orangey golden color with some yellows mixed into it. A bit shimmery and buttery looking. The head on this was nice and puffy and then fell to some really great cling and sticky lace.
Smell- This was very similar to southern stars Walloon. Where this seemed like a saison at first but turned a bit. Lighter, more earthy and grainy from the wheat and a bit spicy like a small rye but unique in that sense.
Taste- I enjoyed this little beer. Drank bigger than the 4% would lead on. A bit small on certain aspects of flavors but with that spicy pseudo rye tinge, and with a bit of the wheats coming in it was a nice balance and duality of flavors. A little of a saison peppery note.
Mouth- Even for a small AbV this had a nice medium wet body behind it with a good medium carbonation. Dry, earthy, grassy and balanced.
Drink- Leave it to Shaun Hill to take an obscure small ABV beer and make it damn good, love HF stuff.
