i am positively fascinated by this operation, and super excited about the beers these guy are coming out with. i am shocked they have not garnered more attention so far. while this is the first beer i have had from them, its seems indicative of their quality and attention to detail overall. hope to be able to continue drinking through their lineup! this is a different kind of belgian pale, seemingly less hoppy, more grain focused, light crackery but flavorful there, and less belgian in the yeast sense, more of a fruity saison strain, short of funky but with an earthy rustic character about it and notes of apple, pear, and grass. the mouthfeel is what has me here though, grainy and big, but also smooth and round, with absolutely no residual sugar and a wonderful effervescent carbonation, super fresh and alive. the clean nature of this despite its size allows for the malt and the yeast to be tasted in their seemingly purest forms, a beautiful balance is there, and they seem equally excited by the subtle oak property to this. unique barley, like elevated to a place it hasnt been before. this is a style of beer that needs a reawakening in american craft brewing, its not just about hot fermenting canned belgian strains, this is something so much more, authentic but also original, of the very highest quality. super stoked on mad fritz right now!
