SunshowerSunshower
Notes: Sunshower is our Super Saison, a high-gravity farmhouse ale inspired by the ethereal refreshing mid-summer moments when we experience both rainfall and the heat of the sun in New England. Similar to our flagship Trillium, the mouthfeel is light and effervescent with a bright, golden hue. We allow the fermentation temperature to free-rise that favors the saison yeast strain’s in the blend to realize its full attenuation potential which results in a dry beer with strength and complexity. Layers of pepper and earthy characteristics that play nice with the crisp, smooth backbone of a pilsner and wheat malt bill.

MALT: Pilsner, White Wheat, Flaked Wheat

HOPS: Columbus

Had on tap. Pours hazy, gold in color with minimal head. Taste is peach, pepper, and grass. Medium bodied and carbonation, sweet. Makes gor a really tasty saison. Would get this again.

The super pillowy and rapidly developing white foam head makes for a completely silent pour, with a golden yellow body that's slightly hazy, possibly due to chill.

On the nose, there are notes of hay and lemon, bread and corn, but this is most certainly abundantly hopped, totally untrue to style. Sunshower is almost dank, but not quite. I'm getting apple, lavender soap, apple cider vinegar. It's an aromatic rollercoaster, with pluses and minuses.

Taste is a little confused between IPA and Saison at first, but Saison does win over. Flavors of hay, lemon, and grass are accompanied with a really intense yet bright honey element, pink peppercorn, a little heat, sort of like champagne, with a green apple gummy bear swallow.

Crisp, light to medium bodied, finishing semi-dry.

This is a super saison. Pours hazy straw yellow, decent foamy head with decent lacing. Banana, clove, pear in the nose and palate, with a belgianesque yeasty flavor. Nice mouthfeel. This is a great saison, that could hold its own against any.
