4 ounce pour directly at the brewery.

Flavor is mild pepper, honey, herbs; Aroma and flavor boast a strong rosemary presence. Body feels light even though it clocks in at 8%. Is there such a thing as extreme floridness? Regardless, very tasty indeed.

Serving type: on-tap

750ml bottle poured into my Night Shift tulip. Bottled 10.17.13, whoops...should've gotten around to this little lady sooner, methinks. Batch No. 11--this is one of the sour ones.

Pours a hazy amber with a frothy finger-high off-white head. Poor head retention--it subsides in under a minute--is counterbalanced by the stubborn collar and film of foam atop the beer. Almost no lacing to speak of--a handful of spots here and there, no more.

In the nose, tart floral rose hip notes, strong spicy and herbal rosemary, sweet honey, and a powerful yogurty lactic funk atop it all. Subtler notes of cracked black and pink peppercorns.

Taste follows the nose almost to a tee. Spicy peppercorn and tart vinegary citrus on the front of the palate is joined mid-palate by a sweeter rose hip note--which, alas, is almost immediately overpowered by wave upon wave of spicy, herbal peppercorn and rosemary. Finishes with one final kick of rye-like spiciness, a subtle note of honey, and a flash of what I swear is...vanilla? Am I crazy?

Medium-bodied, prickly carbonation. Feels slick on the palate.

On the whole, Night Shift continues to intrigue and surprise me...even when I don't necessarily love their end product. This is a very nice bottle, don't get me wrong--but the overlap of tangy floral and spicy herbal notes obscures a lot of the nuanced complexities that I look for in the saison style. Ignoring stylistic conventions, though, this remains a fairly impressive and nicely tasty effort.
