The is my first beer from Penrose and was quite pleased. The beer poured a clear golden color with white head. The scent carried typical Belgian white IPA flare with some fresh hop presence. The taste was true to Belgian IPA form and was refreshing. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall this was a good beer and would drink it again.

Draft pint at Smallbar Logan, quick review from written notes.

Slightly hazed saturated gold, orange highlights, thin layer of white foam on the surface that remains for the first sip or two. Minimal spotty lacing in the glass.

Grassy aroma, light peripheral funk, mild note of wet hay.

Taste is lightly tart and quenching, more grassiness and a mild bitterness in the aftertaste. Fairly simple and straightforward, an unfettered prototype Saison. Light bodied, thirst quenching. Easy drinking by design, P-2 would pair well with many types of dishes. Enjoyable, though a bit more rustic funk character would be nice for added balance and depth.
