Hennepin Chalice
A ~ Not a gusher! That makes this beer that much better than its former incarnate. Pours the same murky light-chestnut brown color, but with a touch less hazyness. Beautiful head that I let recede before getting a good whiff. Fantastic lace.

S ~ Citrus, Pine, & with Farmhouse yeast sweeping things up at the end. Medicine/plasticity linger. Sweet Wheat. There are notes of mango. Rye spice is less prevalent than the former, but it's there.

T ~ Clean citrus notes (orange/clementine) & Wheatbread with peppery farmhouse yeast in a more clean form. Slightly gummy, but no bandaid! A punch of Rye, Pineneedles, & pepper on the finish with a lingering lychee note. Improvement of flavors. Much more focus to detail here.

M ~ Citrus is more vividly expressed on the palette with the Farmhouse yeast. Finish has a peppery finesse with lingering hop flavors. Dry & spicy finish. Mild heat.

D ~ What a beer. Overall this was simply a great move. The previous Wytchmaker was great, but somewhat of a yeast-bomb which lowered drinkability. This Wytch knows what she's doing & wants to be drank NOW...so I will.
Check 'er out. Cheers JK on the tweaked brews!

On tap at Petrol Station

A: Poured into a pint glass, minimal head and lacing, pours a murky golden brown, sorta a hybrid between the color of a golden saison and a amber/brown IPA tone

S: hoppy and piney as to be expected from the base beer, hint of some tart/sour/pungent spice, probably from the saison yeast and the barrel

T: hops and resin intermingle with a fruity/tart quality, almost a saison/wine flavor on the back end

M: the fruity/tart/wine flavors linger and a spicy layer coats the tongue, likely from the hops

O: pretty good, not exactly sure they did here, but I like it.
