Style: Saison / Farmhouse Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 2.90%

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.

Great look, aroma, taste and feel for the ABV, but you do make a noticeable sacrifice for the sub-3%. Nice golden brown effervescent pour. Pourus head that lingers. Aroma of must, hay, lemon and some funk. Taste is where the sacrifice is really noticeable; combined with the carbonation its like a saison-seltzer. Hay, coriander, lemon, apple, earth and pepper. Finishes dry. Impressive for the ABV but it comes with a tradeoff.

Bottle Pours golden. A bit cloudy. Aroma is a bit musty, grainy, grassy, and yeasty. It is very soft. I really need to dig my nose in there. It smells nice and you need to respect that they are going for a super mellow brew. It's flavor is something to be admired when in the right mood. A marriage of rustic flavors that preach balance. I often find table beers to be really cool. This one grabbed my attention with it;s attention to detail within it's delicateness. I'd like to drink this light bodied brew as my first beer of the night sometime.
