Birra caused me to say to myself, "I think I could get into saisons."

Appearance - The beer was a nice cloudy color with a foamy white head. Lacing hugged the sides of the tulip glass.

Smell - The aroma has that musty smell that reminds me of basements in the Midwest. It was Earthy and lemony.

Taste - At the front, I get gritty lemon, something akin to mineral water, and hops. There is a sourness that does not overwhelm, and is actually quite pleasant. The finish is dry and sour, almost to a point that makes you instantaneously makes you want to drink more.

Mouthfeel - The mouthfeel clings to the tongue and the sides of the mouth allows the tart to sting the sides of the tongue. The carbonation sweeps much to the tart away, but some still lingers.

Overall - I am not big on the style, but I like this one.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

A - Bright golden, hazed, white head is fluffy with great retention and lacing.

S/T - Farmhouse funk, yeast, grass, hay, lemon peel citrus. Smells a little more diverse than the flavor.

M - Light body, very high carbonation creates a voluminous, fluffy mouthfeel. Bone dry finish, little spiciness. A little too carbonated to make it "sessionable."

O - Branded to be sessionable as per the label, but the extremely high carbonation takes away from that a bit, making it a sipper. Overall, a very good saison.

Nice lil summertime brew they have here...
Floral and fruit up front with a bit of spice out back.
This one is quite a pleasure to sip on a hot night or even better with spicy food.
This is very close in taste to Russian River Damnation for almost half the price.
Thumbs up Oklahoma!
