Notes / Commercial Description:
A clear and simple expression of the delicate interplay between noble hops and farmhouse yeast. Throughout Northern Europe, light-bodied, well-hopped, low alcohol table beers were often the beverage of choice with all meals at times and in places where the water wasn’t always safe to drink.

Chunks + sheets of white over cloudy lemon. 4
Lemon, grass, and a touch of rustic. 4
Saltines, big hit of lemon, some grass, slight white pepper, and a touch of flowers. 4.5
Dry, crisp, light. 4

Clean zippy, enough citrus and spice… does the job. And 2.9% wins. Very much a table beer, not a saison, but an exceedingly fine one. 4.5

Mostly clear, slightly antiqued gold mirror with a large white airy foam collapsing quickly to an uneven lump with some sporadic fuzzy lace and a thick clinging collar.

Smell is grass, toasted hay and crisp, bright refreshing corn with hints of grape and cracker, as well as a very faint, almost salty cheese and wood funk.

Taste starts with that funk first, almost Gose- and ocean-like, if not for hay and barnyard, then transitions to the Pils-attributes of corn and grass with a little tang and some rindy bitterness. The swallow and exhale brings back some woody almond and old hay funk. There's a hint of black olive in the finish, but overall this is a light, inoffensive drinkable ale.

Medium-light body with a big froth that quickly dissipates to a crisp fizz and semi-dry finish.

Batch #18 2015 vintage

got this bottle at a localish beer shop probably 2 years ago at this point....and it was on the blowout vintage bin for probably a buck or a few at the time. it is quite probable that this is the first batch of this beer so bear that in mind...

brew looks nice enough with a translucent orange and a finger of frothy head that dissipates to a thin layer of fizz that hangs on the surface. very lively effervescence. nose is heavy mineral over light sweet grassiness. the taste is more of the same, but I'm overwhelmed by the mineral flavor. it really tastes like water...kind of like when you fill your glass at a tasting with water so that you can both rinse your glass while also hydrating...the end result is beer flavored water. that's this...no, beer flavored seltzer. not really my bag. I could see this being a nice beer to sip out in the sun on a REALLY hot day and I could drink this if I had to, but I don't.

Well this is certainly an interesting and unique beer. Being that 90% of beers that describe themselves that way are often uninteresting, not unique and well, shitty, . . . we shall see.

Pours very light, some cloudiness to it, 1/4" white head. Lemon funk very mild but noticeable in the aroma.

Taste is a well carbonated mild saison essentially. Session saison. Bitterness is above what was expected, they hopped this thing. A little bit of spice rack in the mouth feel. A tiny bit of hay to it. I liked it but also found it to be cost prohibitive, so prolly would not seek out again even though it was a good beer.
