On draft at the brewery
A: A copper golden color with a small ring of head around the glass. Fairly underwhelming for the style. I think this could benefit from a heavier carbonation/keg conditioning.
S: Floral, Ocean breeze(saltyness),clove, citrus,cereal grain(maybe rye?)
T: A little more muted than the smell. Floral, clove,Citrus, Cereal grains, strong mineral component that I'm not extremely fond of.
M: Fairly thin, soft, rather low carbonation. has a creamy aspect to it. Finishes on the palate very crisply.
O: I always prefer the style to have a big billowy head that sticks around longer than your wifes mom when she was only supposed to stay the weekend. This lacks that and I think a bit more carb would turn to volume up on the smell and taste of this beer. Overall it is immensely drinkable, or chuggable even. Could probably kill 2 full growlers of this on a nice summer day.

Spicy, citrusy, on-point saison. Keep making more of these.

Lovely light gold and delicate lacing. Light fruit and banana with spice on the nose. Taste is similar with more spice and less fruit; plenty of yeast. Excellent house saison.

I'm no poet, but this beer makes me want to learn that art.

I know that sounds contrived and idiotic, but, at least to me, it makes sense.

This is the best American interpretation of the Dupont style saison I've had and I don't expect that to change any time soon.
