A new brewer for me: Enlightenment Ales. This one is No. 6.

Three-finger white head. Large bubbles but they dissapate slowly leaving some chunky spots on the glass. Recedes with a dome. Cloudy orange-light amber color.

Sour, but less so than many Saisons. I like this--it's attractive and allows for me to notice the clove and cream I associate with this style.

Relatively soft start of neutral pale malt. The flavor pops when the liquid is swallowed. Plenty of sourness and black pepper hop bite. Thin bodied with a very high level of carbonation. Lip smacking aftertaste.

An solid but unremarkable saison / farmhouse ale. The nose has some good earthy / dankness to it but the taste comes off harsh and hearty. If you are in the right mood, it would be a good choice but taking down a bomber on a random day may not be the right idea.
