750 ml caged and corked bottle (labeled as Petite Saison, 6% ABV). Served in a Unibroue tulip, the beer pours a hazy gold color with about a half inch off-white head that sticked around for a while. There's a decent amount of lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like grainy malt, hay, citrus peel, yeast and some apricots. Taste is similar to the aroma, it tastes like grainy malt, peppery spice, hay, citrus peel, bananas, apricots, and some earthy mustiness. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it's nice and refreshing with moderate carbonation. I thought this was good, but then I don't think I've ever had anything from Rockmill that I haven't liked. Definitely worth picking up! $12.99 a bottle.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Bottled 7/23/14. 6% ABV per the label.

Pours a murky honey orange with a foamy bone head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small patches of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, citrus, earth, spice, and yeast aromas. Taste is much the same with grain, citrus fruit, citrus juice, spice, and yeast flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and dry mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that smells good and has a taste that is very citrus forward.

Serving type: bottle.

12.7oz bottle poured into a pint glass
A: Goldenrod color, opaque/hazy with a thin head that quickly settles
S: Bluejacket nails this: wheat, hay, yeast, citrus and apricot
T: Wheat, citrus, a distinct sourness that seems almost like it's yeast-based (more complex and distinct from just the citrus), and a bit of stone fruit
P: Light-bodied, sour, crisp and carbonated
O: Really enjoyable and complex. One of my favorite Rockmill brews to date
