Brewed with chrysanthemum,jasmine, and Szechuan peppercorns. Fortunately, there is not too much of any of them, though Caution Brewing in Denver makes a chrysanthemum IPA that is really good. Attractive clear golden amber with thin foam in the Troubadour tulip. No sediment at all in the bottle. Some tingle to start, but less carbonation than is typical.
There is a deep, honey-toned maltiness to start. Finishes with a bitter yeasty taste. The herbs add some additional bitterness. I don't actually taste any pepper. I couldn't say what jasmine tastes like, if anything, but there is a whiff of sweet flowers in the aroma. A little funk and pencil shavings, but persistently sweet. Kind of a spicy fruit salad.
A pleasant and interesting Saison, and yet another good one from the Northwest. The painted-on label has No. 2 on the neck, for some reason. 30th Anniversary collaboration with Breakside Brewing. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at the Community Co-op market in Bellingham.
