A - Arrived in a tulip glass with about a finger's worth of head. The head didn't retain particularly long, nor did the beer leave noticeable lacing on the glass. Grizacca is a straw colored saison with good carbonation visible in the glass.
S - Nice aroma, mostly the lemongrass that I would expect. Little bit of smell that I typically associate with the yeast.
T - Quite nice. Follows the nose lemongrass and a bit of peppery spice up front. Nice fruitiness on the finish. Not overly sweet, just enough.
M - On the light side of medium, which is fine. The carbonation also felt lively and the finish was moderately dry.
O - This beer contains many of the characteristics that I look for in a saison! Had it on tap during a trip to Maine and normally seek out Oxbow when I'm in the area. This seems to be a solid strategy for finding good, local beers.

Growler enjoyed over the weekend in Bar Harbor while camping. Reviewed from notes taken.
A- Appropriately poured from the Oxbow growler into the Oxbow snifter/tulip glass. Golden light orange body with some natural haziness to it. Creamy white head a few fingers high with decent retention. Lots of lace clouds around the glass.
S- Super juicy hops. A lot of fruit feel with both citrus and tropical varieties coming to mind. Reminds me of melons, mango, peach, passion fruit and orange zest. A ton of hop aroma and extremely inviting.
T- Like the aroma, hop flavors are big but maybe just a bit less dominant here. Juicy tropical fruits, citrus zest, spicy and grassy flavors come to mind; some could be from both the hops and yeast strain. The farmhouse yeast makes an appearance here that the hops mostly masked in the aroma. Some light fresh cracked grain and sweetness from the malts.
MF- Light bodied but a nice silky, foamy texture with any agitation. Moderately high carbonation and it finishes with a medium bitterness.
One thing I enjoy about this beer is the use of hops to get an amazing aroma and flavor from them, almost at an IPA level. I also enjoy how the hops seem to blend in with the yeast and everything comes together into one great taste. Super drinkable and flavorful, a new favorite.
