Notes/Commercial Description:
A clear and simple expression of the delicate interplay between noble hops and farmhouse yeast. Throughout Northern Europe, light-bodied, well-hopped, low alcohol table beers were often the beverage of choice with all meals at times and in places where the water wasn’t always safe to drink.

On tap at the Draught House.

Pours a hazy, pale yellow, with a meniscus of light foam. Smell is a subtle blend of malt, Belgian yeast funk, and grassy hops. the beer looks and smells a lot like Noble King, though the aroma is slightly more subdued. The initial taste is spicy, sour citrus with faint hops. But immediately after, you can tell, somehow, that this is low-alcohol beer (I later read it's 2.8 %). It's as if the alcohol presence was replaced by a clean water sensation. Paradoxically, the beer is not at all watery in the light beer sense. It's a biphasic experience: a flavorful saison, followed by a chaser of glacial melt water in the same sip. It finishes with a graininess that becomes minerally and remains through the aftertaste, like keeping a small,smooth stone in your mouth. Wow. What a totally unique, complex, completely refreshing brew. This would be great to session or enjoy daily with lunch or guzzle after mowing the yard in the summer.

I've never had anything like it and hope to see more brewers finally making great beer at the other end of the alcohol spectrum. Small beer perfection.
