Tap pour at Lula's in Logan Square.
A: Pours a mellow gold with a nice white head.
S: Pretty traditional clean saison aroma. White cake, bit of coriander, nectarine esters.
T: Dryish and clean. Bit of vanilla, mild hop bitterness, white sugar. Mild.
M: Light-bodied with crisp carbonation.
O: A decent clean saison that's good for sessioning. Penrose could do something more interesting than this though.

Served in a shaped pint glass at Firkin.
Hey, another Penrose beer. When it rains it pours, I guess. This stuff pours a mostly clear sunrise brass topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises light lemon rind, cracked wheat, mild soap, grass, and a pinch of black pepper. The taste brings in more of the same, the grass, wheat, and soap leading the charge. Maybe it's just me, but that soap character seems to be a hallmark of Penrose's yeast... The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a slightly drying finish. Overall, a bit of an underwhelming saison for me, especially with that vague soapiness I also found in Proto Gradus. I'm still optimistic about future Penrose offerings, but things have not gone exceedingly well so far.

One of my favorites from Penrose. Straw/lemonade colored body with tiny bubbles for a head. Light scent with a bit of an esteriness but not funky. The lack of overt spices or yestiness really is well done here. The beer is bright and effervescent. So drinkable. Can't wait for warm weather here to crush a growler of this. Light citrus notes and almost champagne-like flavor. A hit with a saison fan.
