Purchased at the LCBO for a mighty steep $9.95 for a 750ml bottle. Served at 7deg C in a tulip.

A- Very nice. Opens with a mighty pop and pours a ton of head. Unfiltered

S- WOW I like this one. So new.

T- A bit of pine needles. Not like gin but it's there. So this is Sorachi hops. I like

M- Creamy and bold. Super nice refreshing try

O- Very good. Worth having a couple around

Food Pairing

This light beer cut through the hot flavor believe it or not of..... Ethiopian Berbere curry

Enjoy!

Poured from tap into tulip, nice 1/2 finger cream colored head, great lacing. Bright clear golden in the glass. Smells of faint Belgian esters, but the underlying lemongrass from the sorachi ace hops rules the nose. Taste is initially spicy, somewhat medicinal and then the lemongrass comes in, some slight dill going on. Finishes with a dry spicy finish. This is somewhat my goto saison. Also extremely stokes this is in 6 packs now
