On tap at the brewery. Pours an opaque apricot color with a fine white head. Aroma is pale malty with a strange rye-ish character, I guess that’s what spelt is like. Some banana pith on the nose as well, a touch of fruit salad. Flavor is lovely soft fruits -- peaches, bananas -- with a glorious malt balance and a smooth dry finish. Very much like Odonata Saison (RIP) but I’m inclined to say this is better.

From growler to teku.

This poured a clear, light golden color with something akin to a honeyed-amberlike glow.
There’s a honeyed, estery aroma to this. I get a floral note on the palate as I sip along with some wet hay from a hidden, emerging funk note. This beer strikes me as nuanced and sippable as a delicate white wine—with a similar cross-over appeal to it too. The spelt grain contributes a characteristic which reminds me of Baladin’s Nora.
