3.75/5  rDev -3.8%

Poured on-tap at the brewery and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a hazy, lemon-yellow coloring, with a filmy, clingy, white head. Nose of light tart fruit, farmhouse funk, coriander, all-spice, and nutmeg. Flavors are lemon zest forward, with lemon grass, a blend of spices, and a cracker backbone. Effervescent, light body, with a tangy sweet and spiced aftertaste. The finish is light, frothy, and effervesced, with a tart citrus linger.

Bright effervescent.

Clove, light fruit, a touch of menthol.

Light, cleansing.

Great food beer

4/5  rDev +2.6%

Appearance: Displays an obscured, hazed appearance, golden-orange in hue with a smallish, whitish head leaving no more than a few flecks of lace.

Smell: A simple, austere malt profile on the nose, small hints of lemon peel as well as flecks of apple, pear. Earthy spiciness.

Taste: Rustic, dusty, hay-like maltiness boosted with a bit of oat and rye. Lightly sweet. A bit of tart lemon emerges with a thin sliver of herbaceousness. Subtly bitter. Balanced phenolic spiciness. Additional albeit restrained orchard fruitiness. Near dry, lightly creamy, velvety finish with a touch of cracked grain.

Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Reticent is a solid, straight-forward but well-executed saison that satisfies without the need for additional spices and fruits.
