Hazy pale yellow with three fingers of off-white head. Thick lacing.

Dry, woody aroma with a hint of lemon.

Similar taste, although with stronger lemon flavor that makes it less dry. Light funk and wood keep it interesting.

Soft feel with very tight carbonation.

A lovely, delicate beer with a nice balance to it.

750 ml bottle.

Pours a cloudy pale yellow color with a large fluffy white head. Moderate head retention. Leaves some spotty lacing.

Lots of citrus on the aroma, with some green apples, leather, grass, funk and damp oak. There's a hint of sweet honey and vanilla.

The flavor brings a lot of white wine vinegar, lemon zest, apricot, green apple, wheat, hay and grass and light oak with a hint of vanilla. Subtly spicy.

The feel is light bodied with lively carbonation. Crisp, yet fluffy with a dry finish.

Overall, this is a great farmhouse ale. It's subtly tart and funky yet fruity and rustic. Not their best, but still very well done.

Poured from a bottle (Feb2020) into a Belgian glass

L: little bit of a gusher, nothing crazy. Light yellow gold, slightly turbid. Rich white head, quite thick thickness, with medium white lacing

S: very light, citrusy farmhouse nose. Tart, some mild funk, lots of lemon (zest, flesh), herbal/floral

T: like the nose, a clean American farmhouse flavor led by that lemon zest/lemon flesh flavor. Tart, slightly peppery, some flour. Medium finish

F: light, thin body, medium/high carbonation, elevated acidity

O: clean and simple farmhouse, lemon flavor leads. Refreshing and drinkable, great Sunday evening beer

Crystal clear, straw colored.

Funky and rustic aroma, with Belgian bubblegum yeast notes, hay, leather, light vinegar and citrus.

Sharply funky on the palate, leaning toward sour tones, along with a noticeable earthy, pungent, cheese-like funk. Oak, tannins, lemon, honey, dirt.

Very lively and crisp.

Pours a clear straw color with a one inch white head that left spotty lacing. Smells of citrus fruits, oak and funk. Tastes of mildly tart lemon, wheat, white grapes, oak, a bit of vanilla, a bit of pepper and some funk/must. Light bodied, well carbonated, mildly dry and tart finish. Clean and crisp.

First Suarez family beer.

Blend #5

yellow body with egg shell white head.

Smells / tastes of dry oak, lemon, pineapple, and white wine.

Mouthfeel is very nice. Light and crisp. Semidry finish.

Overall: This reminds me alot of Hill Farmstead Flora. This beer easily exceeded expectations.

750 ml. bottle.
Bottle date: 3/19.
Moderate to vigorous pour yields a 3/4 inch white head over a slightly hazy light golden body with a little lacing. Wonderful nose of funk, citrus, and slight oak. Taste of slightly tart lemon, oak, and a bit of spice. There certainly is a lot going on with this 4.3% abv. table beer! Very nice feel and overall, I could smell this all day and will be on the lookout for another bottle! Cheers to the Suarez Family Brewery for another fine offering!!!

Terrific beer with good tartness as well as hints of lemon and some citrus fruit. Great Suarez family funkiness and amazing head and lacing in this brew.

a beautiful looking beer

aromas are sharp lemon zest and pithy floral character. has some fruityness of kiwi and orange. earthy minerality, slight funk, hint of oaky sweetness, grainy, dried straw.

palate opens with a blast of crisp green apple, refreshingly tart. sweet meyer lemon and rose petal dancing in there too ... hint of peach skin, slightly funky and just a touch of that musty attic character. slightly lactic but pretty restrained, invoking a peasant fruit yogurt type thing. fluffy bread/grain character throughout. there are also some subtle oaky vanilla notes and a very delicate grape/wine flavor, grape skin. towards the end of the bottle and as its warming there is more funky character bringing a peppery spice and some earthy and barnyard notes of hay and dried grass...the fruitiness is amplified as well, with musty grape skin, under ripe peach, sweet lemon, and acidic orange flavors showing up in abundance. overall this is complex and has serious depth of flavor but still manages to be delicate and approachable. the wonderful light and effervescent mouthfeel accentuates these flavors, dense dense carbonation and an almost creamy quality. this beer is just so cohesive, its dry and tart but has some subtle barrel sweetness, its light and simple and crisp but also has so much flavor to offer. the execution of this beer is so impressive to the point where it just feels right, or at least invokes an emotion to put you in a certain place, a real laid back and chilled out country side type of setting for me.

7/17 edition (Blend #3). Poured from a bomber into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Clear pale golden pour with several fingers of fluffy white head. Great retention/lacing.

S: Tart and fruity... a bit of funk.

T/F: Light grains and tart fruit with some sweetness making its way through. Lemon citrus, oak, and chardonnay... light funk... green apple peel, and faint vanilla. A mineral quality towards the finish. Light bodied... super drinkable and with delicate carbonation.

O: An outstanding and super drinkable brew... and at 4.3% it's good for just about any occasion. Complex and delicious.

750 mL bottle. Pours a clear golden. Smells of soft oak, grain, lemon acidity, and a little bit of grape fruitiness, like a very fruity white wine. Tastes of grain throughout. Lightly tart, again with a touch of lemon and a white wine fruit flavor. Oak permeates and softens the grainy profile. Back end is mineral, almost salty at its peak. Light and crisp. Much more textured than the standard Suarez profile. Delicious.

750ml capped bottle. Teku glass. Pours a cloudy golden yellow body, slight straw, one finger white head, good retention, lots of lacing. Smell is freshly squeezed lemon, a bit of zest, spelt, touch of leather, slightly sweet toasted grain. Flavour is a nice conglomerate of the nose; lemon, citrus zest, wheat, very light brett leather and lemon, slight toast, mineral. It's an incredibly clean but interesting beer that brings everything together really nicely. I can't stop drinking this. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, good carbonation, incredibly refreshing and full of flavor all the way through. According to this listing, this beer is 4.3% ABV. I have a really hard time believing that. It hits all the boxes and has something for you every single step of the way. This is one heck of a flagship saison.
