Bottle poured into a snifter. Reviewing in steps.
A - Accidental moderately vigourous pour produced a serious head (shocking) that dissipated quickly with a beautifully knit lacing around the edges. Brilliant blonde tone. Can't wait.
S - Hops and lots of them. Grapefruit and the citrus for sure with a certain nose of pear. It might be stretching, but a bit of yeast?
T - If you blind folded me, I'd say a Huma with fruit. Very, very hoppy that finally settles down to something that seems like a farmhouse.
M - Very good. Perfect carbonation, crisp, clean, thin and refreshing like a saison should be, but it's not a saison...
O - Picked this up with a pick 6 on a visit to the brewpub. It's not a saison. Maybe it started off with that intention, but it was overly dry hopped and disguises that. Regardless, I love it. It comes off as an extra carbonated DIPA with fruit, and if they want to bill that as a saison, then I'm an American Belgian. Very happy I have two left. Saving them for good company.
