my apologies to the brewery for the beer-induced email last weekend.... it really is a very nice tasting brew.
poured a clear straw (corona-colored) with a nice head on top. 2nd pour with sediment (was i supposed to release the sediment?) was, of course, hazy.
smells a little heartland-grassy with some spice, but refreshing.
taste was very nice and pleasant. not sure what to expect with ginger, but it's a very nice taste. 2nd pour with the sediment produced a bitter taste, but that is all to be expected. i dont remember the other saisons i've tried having sediment.
mouthfeel was light adn pleasant.
overall, this was a really nice brew. i do have an issue with the bottle not exhibiting the abv; i mean, that DOES factor in to the entire tasting/reviewing experience, does it not? but it was explained to me that under 5.6% (?) does not need to denote the abv. i didnt know that. i believe this was my first green flash experience, and it was a very good one. again, my apologies for the rudeness in the email i sent, but there was an issue which i believe was a fair one. i will try more of these from this brewery. but i'm still not sure if i'm supposed to pour the sediment?
