The description of the Oxford Comma from their website is "Light-bodied, sunshine-colored Belgian blonde ale delicately spiced with green cardamom, elderflowers, lemon peel, rosehips, green coriander, lavender, and ginger. Manly as hell." The beer poured a crisp lemon yellow with thin white head. Now I have no idea what cardamom, elderflower and rosehip smells like....but this beer is out of sight from a fragrance standpoint. The taste was much more subtle than the scent. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it was very interesting.

I tried this one on tap at Hopleaf.

A - A nice clear yellow, with a thin ring of white head that leaves minimal lacing.

S - A hit of orange and citrus, with a kick of saison-like yeast to round things out.

T - Lemony and citrusy, with a clean and slightly peppery aftertaste. Very drinkable Belgian.

M - Pretty thin, with a smaller amount of carbonation.

O - I think this would be a very nice sipping summer brew. It went really great with a duck reuben at Hopleaf, so I would venture to say that it is food friendly as well.
