Pours a relatively clear pinkish amber, fluffy 2" head with good retention and lacing. Nose is acetic with punchy notes of lemon, barny funk, hay and field, and white wine vinegar. Taste, however, is surprisingly subdued. Sourness is very light, with only a light tartness expected from a hibiscus or lemon tea. Lots of musty and dusty barn notes, with a grain kick mid-palate. Mouthfeel is crisp, clean, and refreshing. A nice beer.

Grassroots Brewing "Convivial Suaréz"
€5 / ,3l on tap @ Diorama, Firenze, IT on 26 November 2019

How funny is this? I had this beer in Florence, Italy while I only live a few hours drive away from the brewery in Vermont. If I'd known it was an American beer I wouldn't have ordered it, but at the same time at least I got it for less than I would have paid for it in the states!

Look: Hazy golden-amber/crimson in color beneath a short head of white foam. Fair head retention and lacing, but it is a sour beer so that's actually pretty good. It leaves some nice streaks of lace behind on the glass.
Smell: "Tart" with notes of apple and pear. Floral and lightly vinous.
Taste: Medium tart but not bitingly sour.Notes of tart apricot, apple, and pear over lightly sweet, thin, bready malt. Lightly floral and herbal. Mild touch of citrus pith bitterness. Tart and dry, fruity/floral finish. Short lingering.
Feel: Medium-light in body with a crisp, fine-bubbled, seemingly natural carbonation.
Overall: Quite charming and enjoyable. Very delicately balanced.

By turns funky + candy fun. Loses classic saison character (no pepper) in favour of signature Hill Farmstead mixed ferm. Another good food beer. Interesting enough to stick with for the night.

Not sure if it's just the (beautiful nectarine-hued) color of this brew playing mind tricks on me, but this one comes across as quite kriek-like. Has a lot of fruity cherry pie aromatics and a nice berry tartness in the flavors without overwhelming the palate. Super refreshing and quaffable. Tried a glass at both fridge and room temperature and both were very good

Poured from a bomber into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Hazed golden red pour with 1.5 fingers of fluffy white head. Great ring of lacing.

S: Tart and acidic. Fruit, funk, and goodness.

T.F: Tart without being sour. Light grain/bread. Funk and oak... green fruits and lemon citrus. Hibiscus, pear, and white grape. Moderate acidity with some apple-cider vinegar. Complex... green apple peel and spice. Lots of different flavors going on and the character changes slightly as it warms. Medium bodied... prickly carbonation with more funk and green fruit at the finish.

O: An outstanding Saison. Tart but super drinkable and a great mix of flavors. Just awesome beer.
