3.55/5  rDev -1.1%
look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.25

Served out of a growler into a 12 oz 3 stars snifter glass. Growler is fresh from the brewery and also review is based on the tasting at the brewery.

A: Cloudy golden yellow that is nontransparent. no matter floating in beer and no head on the pour.

S: Lemon lemon and more lemon. Small amount of yeast scent.

T: light and fruity. pretty consistent throughout. No sense of alcohol in it.

M: thin and light with a bit of dryness after swishing around and swallowing.

O: Really fresh and summery. Could probably kill a growler of this if I hadn't shared it. Easier to drink and lower in alcohol than the Peppercorn saison they make, but not as intricate. Dave and Mike have come out with another successful brew!

Serving type: growler

On tap at Breadsoda in Glover Park DC

Everything about this brew is mediocre in comparison to craft brew standards, although better than most of the "beer" sold in the US

Appearance is a pale clear yellow with little head
Taste is weak, with only the faintest traces of the character that defines a saison

Worst is the mouthfeel which is almost non-existant

Overall just something to quench the thirst on a hot day

Serving type: on-tap
