Kentucky

4.2/5  rDev +0.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Golden straw color with good haze. Clean white thick 1" head at pour settling to a even 1'8" cover. Very light belgian spice with just a touch of pepper to aroma, pick up some faint lemon. High, fuzzy carbonation, making for a ver crisp finish on the swallow. Tingles the toungue. MAkes for some nice lacing on the glass. Light Malt. Very clean, Light and refreshing mouthfeel. light malty sugar with lemon in aftertaste. Very well done. I like the carbonation left on the back of the tougue at the end. Slight dryness on the finish with pale citrus peel feel. Feeling in the back of your mouth light and tart, could have a bit of a peppery effect. Not really picking up on the big sour that some get, but a great example of style. Seems simple enough while also being complex. very good.

Served on tap in a chalice glass

Appearance – The beer is served a lightly hazed yellow amber color with a one finger head of white foam. The head has a decent level of retention, fading over time to leave a nice level of streaky lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma is a nice mix of sweet, grain, and sour funk. There are nice sweeter Belgian aromas of a banana and light citrus smell with lots of Belgian pale malt aromas. A yeasty smell is there as well as well as a good showing of funk, taking on a mix of green apple and hay. With these aromas, there is also a light smell of spice and a bit of sour lemon. Overall very inviting.

Taste – The taste begins with a sweet fruity flavor with lots of orange and a bit of peach, pear and apricot as well. Along with these sweeter fruits are some flavors of candied sugar and a sweet-and sour green apple taste. Right upfront there is also a light bready flavor which fades slightly as the flavor advances. While the bready fades, other flavors take its place with some yeasty and banana flavors joining the profile. Some spice flavors and a bit of lemon later come to the tongue and more toward the end a decent haylike and grassy flavor join the taste profile as well, creating a nice mix of sweet and sour-funk flavors to linger on the tongue at the end of the taste.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is thin with a carbonation level that is slightly higher. The thinner body and higher carbonation are fantastic for the sweet and funked flavor of the brew, giving an overall very crisp and drinkable feel.

Overall – This is a quite nice saison with a great drinkability and a fantastic fruity sweet-yet nicely soured and funked flavor. Rather refreshing, crisp, and delicious.
