New York, United States
Notes: Mixed Grain Saison. In tribute to Grow NYC’s 50th Anniversary we’ve made this beer using all NYS grain and hops including Malted Barley, Warthog Wheat, Tritcale, Spelt, Rye, Oats, and Corn. Refreshing with a light body, glowing haze and notes of spice.

The head just about overflows the glass, crystalline and about as airy as can be, gone in a moment with barely a coating across the surface. Mild haze to it, translucent, bright yellow with a storm of bubbles whipping around. Grainy, yeasty nose, stiff presence without much expansion, peppercorns, pressed flowers and quinine, moderate orchard pit fruit scents. Medium-bodied, foamy enough to distract and likely spread the flavors too thinly. More toastiness in the bread, dough element, however, conversely there’s a noticeable bubblegum thing going on. Lemony, not too bitter but has some bite at the end. Apple, cherry, apricot fruit, good mix of flavors. Overall, a bit clenched and there could be more clarity among the constituent parts. I’m not crazy about it but well made and easy to see it having fans.

A: The beer is a little hazy yellow in color and has a high amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high frothy white head that died down a bit but consistently left a quarter finger high head covering the surface.
S: Moderate aromas of grainy malts are present in the nose along with notes of Belgian yeast and hints of wheat.
T: The taste has flavors of wheat and grainy malts along with notes of spicy yeast.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and a touch dry on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This saison seems to be a little more rustic and complex compared to other beers in the style.

Can from the brewery in Brooklyn during 2020 COVID pause. Pours a hazy orange gold with two fingers of sticky bubbly white head, smell is spicy sour and grassy candies malts, taste is candied malt sweetness up front that transitions to a grassy sour apple juice that finishes with a slickness that lingers, the taste occasionally seems somewhat astringent/bitter and metallic but becomes more mild and cinnamon spicy as it warms, feel is medium bodied. AN interesting sour grass and rye spice NYS saison.
