3.81/5 rDev -2.3%
Appearance: Mostly clear, lightly hazy, deep gold with some honey - pours with a large head, retains a mostly solid cap, thick collar, and leaves some nice spots of lacing
Smell: Grains, light bread, light fruits, and a touch of funk - interesting array of malty and grainy aromas, including pale grains, wheat, light bread, barely cooked biscuits, and some hints of caramel grains and rye - lightly funky Belgian yeast with some farmhouse funk, clove, banana, and bubblegum - some malty sweetness, sugar, apples, grapes, and pears - pepper and more sweetness
Taste: Definitely interesting, even if I usually prefer my saisons to be dryer - nice complexity in the malts, with some pale and caramel grains, wheat, rye, and oats - decidedly bready; quite literally like a multigrain bread - some funky Belgian yeast, with some funk, clove, banana, bubblegum, and more pepper than in the aroma - floral aspects - lightly tart green apple, pear, and white grapes - finishes with some sweetness and maybe a touch of alcohol
Mouthfeel: Medium body, nicely carbonated, finishes wet and spicy
Overall: Pawtucket, the farmhouse of Rhode Island (???)
This was more interesting than expected. It's a bit on the sweet side, but the complexity of the malt profile kind of makes up for it. At the very least, this serves as a strong reminder that I need to actually tour this brewery before I move out of RI.
