The kind folks at OEC said the growlers would last in the fridge for several months, but after almost 3 weeks I decided to quaff this kind beverage to gain some respite from my memories of Lenore.

750 ml OEC growler into a champagne flute.

A: Mostly transparent, straw yellow. Tons of bubbles streaming up reinforcing a large soapy white head.

N: Spicy lemon. An intense, delicious aroma.

T: Wow! Tons of flavor packed in there, considering it's just 5.5% ABV. More tart than I expected. I get lots of lemon and barnyard funk. The finish is soft on the palate, which is surprising considering the tartness and streaming bubbles.

M: Medium to full and slightly slick. A bit flat with a little less life than I would have liked or expected, what with the profusion of bubbles streaming up the glass.

O: An outstanding tart saison. I continue to be impressed with OEC.

I got this in a growler, never tried before. A rye saisons sounds gross, but i wanted to fill the growler and this was one of 2 beers available. WOW, this is amazing. Tart and a simply beautiful saison with lots of funk on the nose and palate
