Bottle (2013)

Acquired via trade
Thanks, FTowne!

Slightly hazed golden with a very small white head. Not a lot of visible carbonation, especially for the style. Small dots left down the glass.

Mild aroma of saison yeast with just a hint of straw, dried grass, and very mild cherry, if I search for it.

As with the aroma, the flavors are all nice, but quite mild. Saison yeast, dried grasses and hay, and just a hint of fruit. Nothing off, but a fairly boring take on a fruited saison with Brett.

Thin-medium bodied with low carbonation.

Very drinkable beer on a scorching hot day, but relatively boring, all things considered. Perhaps I should have sat on this one for a while and let the Brett do some more work. Regardless, it's tasty in this heat.
