Hill Farmstead Brewery - Vera Mae, poured into a tulip glass.

Look - Pours a cloudy pale yellow with a small foamy head that dissipates quickly. Tons of lacing.

Smell - Sour spelt and lemon, wild yeast, some flowery dandelion.

Taste - Sour punchy lemon with spelt on top. Hints of dandelion throughout. Now I guess I can say I know how dandelion tastes and it actually is not half bad!

Mouthfeel - Rests fruity sour with some yeasty influence on top. Slightly warm for the abv but in a good way for the style. Great drinkability. As you get accustomed to the flavor this brew really goes down easy. Dry and crisp.

Overall - One of the smoothest saisons without lacking the punch that I have had. Solid and pure tasting. True to the style and on-par with just about anyone else's.
