2 reviews in 1 day! Acquired this 375ml bottle from a single-day release at the brewery for Hunahpu's Hangover Day on March 9, 2014. Poured into a tall pilsner glass.
A: Pours a cloudy, tangerine orange, brighter and more straw-like toward the edges. Big white head subsides quickly and sticks around throughout, but no lacing at all.
S: Immediately I think "yeast," followed by lemon citric tang, and a not terribly unpleasant soapy aroma.
T/M: Tastes a lot better than the nose would have you imagine, all lemon tang, sweet kumquat fruit, and a delightful grain base. Gets a bit sweeter as it warms, very nicely balanced farmhouse. Carbonation approaches an almost intense level, but is restrained enough to be just right for the style.
O: A nice effort by the fine fellows at 7venth Sun. They had me at "kumquat saison," and the beer thankfully is more than solid. Not sure if they ever have plans to brew/bottle it again, but it may be worth seeking out for those who enjoy a fruited take on a saison.
