750 ml bottle into a tulip glass.

Pours a hazy straw color with a large fluffy white head. Moderate retention. Leaves a good amount of splotchy lacing. Looks about the same as OG Arthur.

The aroma is still nicely tart, with the same pear and and lemon notes you'd expect. Very herbal and grassy. The Cascade adds a nice grapefruit and spicy hop character.

The flavor is very citrusy, with notes of lemon zest, lime and orange with a significant amount of grapefruit from the Cascade hops. There's plenty of pear with some grassiness and a touch of funk. Very grainy. Tastes like Arthur, but slightly less tart and with more yeast and citrusy hops (obviously).

The feel is light bodied, effervescent, exceptionally crisp and drinkable. Very clean and dry.

Overall, this is a fantastic dry-hopped saison. It doesn't deviate too far from regular Arthur, but the Cascade hops add a nice, earthy undertone with a fair amount of citrus, making this more than just a "tweaked" version of one of their best beers.

6/30/16 bottling date.

This one pours a slightly hazy straw yellow, with a 1.5 inch head, and lots of lacing.

It smells pretty similar to Arthur, unsurprisingly, but smells a little bit less tart on the nose, with some dry chalkiness, grapefruit, lots of grassiness, mineral water, and lots of citrus.

Arthur is one of my absolute favorite beers, traditionally. The dry hopping adds a few subtle changes. The beer obviously tastes a bit hoppier, with grapefruit, and a pronounced grassiness. The beer is less tart than Arthur, but has that same stone fruit and chalky candied funk that I love in Arthur.

It's super drinkable, with a crisp and clean mouthfeel, with a slight lingering bitterness. It finishes much more dry than the base Arthur.

You had to know that this beer would be a big slam dunk- and it is.

Straw colored body with a hint of haze and a soapy bone-white head. Aroma has a bit of funk, some bready grains, a dash of tree fruits and some lemon zest. Flavor brings through some lemon notes more, with tons of grassy notes and a dash of hay and funk. Feel is very quenching, dry on the finish, medium carbonation. Really great beer that is very refreshing.

This is a top notch batch. Really funky right out of the gate. Super dry and clean. Crisp and quenching. Some floral notes from the hops but minimal bitterness. Excellent.
