Notes: Rye saison made with ingredients sourced from New York Maltsters and Hop Farms. Fresh malt sweetness and light spiciness from malted rye make this beer balanced and quaffable.

A: pours a hazy, but not overly so, straw gold, with a creamy, white, two-finger head and above average retention for an american saison
S: grainy, definite pilsner malt and some of the mealiness of rye, and a clean herbaceous bitterness, but the spiciness I was hoping for is missing, not overly fragrant and underwhelming
T: very grainy, but too sweet, it is crisp with subtle, but definitely present phenolic notes of clove and less so banana, it has a clean bitterness that I wish was more present
M: Silky, what the hell, a saison should not be silky
O: this is a good beer, but to me it's not really all that much of a saison, it would read better as a sessionable tripel or golden ale but not as a saison
