Poured on tap into a wine glass at the brewpub. From notes.

Deep apricot orange body, solid throughout with a nice glow. Creamy one finger head presented, bright and white. Some slow rising pinhead carbonation with a thin ring lace while consuming. Real nice looking.

Good hop front nose of peach and mango like aromatics. Some slight dry black pepper but not too funky. Great wine and lemon like notes of pinot grigio like quality also, real nice.

Palate comes with a much more noticeable drier finish. Strangely and almost salty quality in the aftertaste, with hop angle more dominate to American style Ipa of tropical orange. Good mild white bread dough finish and sour yeast component on the aftertaste. Medium dry and hop bitterness very tolerable but obvious and a good juiced body feel.

Overall another solid brew from the gang.

Brasilian saison? Why not. Not sure what makes it Brasilian, but can't argue with the finished product. Light, refreshing and crushable. This is a great session beer, especially in the middle of a snowstorm. A touch of warmth. Right Proper is upping its game with each new beer they release.

On draft at Right Proper.

Hazy yellow body with a small head that quickly dissipates. Aromas of tropical fruit and funk. Mango, pineapple, earth, light spice, maybe a touch of pepper. Good stuff.
