Bottle from Boise Co-op. Not your typical post match brew, but really good. Listed as an APA, with tons of Saison character. Cloudy pale golden body with some floaties and a thick foamy head. Yeast is predominant aroma, taste builds some hop bite. Smooth and creamy, mild fruity notes too. Gender bender for sure, but extremely tasty.

Impressive four-finger head. As it recedes, it forms a dimpled dome. The lace is spotty. The color is straw to gold with a solid haze with some bottle-conditioned yeast pouring into the glass at the end.

The smell starts off grainy, as if there is unmalted (pale) barley in the brew. I then get elements of vanilla, cream and very pale malted barley. There's a light, floral hop--almost unnoticeable.

The taste is a bit more pedestrian. I get a good pale malt base and a more biting black pepper finish. Decently long aftertaste with a bit of freshly cut weeds on the back of the throat. The carbonation is fine but above average. Solid body.

Overall, the complexity is strictly in the smell. The taste breaks no rules but does not create interest either.

Very nice pale ale for a forgotten style. Really like this take. Well balanced and full of flavor

Opens with a pop. A bit more carbonated than average, had to go real slow to pour this one into the glass. Settles slightly hazy and bubbly, a pale yellow with an aggressive head that settles nicely after a few minutes. First thought was that this is much more belgian-y than I was expecting; the nose has those notes of banana and yeast. The taste follows the nose with some earthy hop presence and notes of tangerine, but the flavors are pretty subtle and fade quickly. The feel is the most interesting: It's bubbly, but transitions quickly into that smooth buttery feel. Relatively dry, and easy drinking.

Overall I enjoyed the balanced flavor profile despite it being somewhat light in flavor, though I don't always love that overly carbonated feel. Felt more light a Belgian pale ale in some respects.
