Bottle L419A, 11 2017. DFH Tulip.

A: bright, brassy, slightly hazy gold with three fingers of frothy, foamy head and roiling carbonation that bubbled over when I opened it. Head lasted well, leaving a thick island of foam in the middle of the glass, but I was surprised there was no lacing to speak of.

S: grainy, wheaty, slightly phenolic nose. Smells super light and refreshing, like a sunny summer afternoon (it was rainy today...). With time, as it warmed up, more spicy phenols presented on the nose, but I never got the expected fruitiness. After it warmed I got a bit of fresh lemon custard, perhaps.

T: arrives dry and crisp, with that same wheaty character carrying over on the palate. Spicy phenols present in the middle with a touch of alcohol, and then it ends in a crisp and dry finish. A little fruit presents toward the end and carries on to the finish; perhaps nectarine or white peach? Getting the last bit with the sediment transforms this into a monstrously bitter and phenolic show. Better without, imho.

M: lighter side of mid weight with very high carbonation making it feel lighter. Slightly slick on the finish.

O: All told, a much milder beer than I was expecting. Except for after I disturbed the sediment, this was much milder than any of the American Saisons I’ve tried. I only see the 750’s and draft around here; I might be inclined to buy it more if I could get smaller bottles. Dangerously drinkable at 6.5%, but I think I prefer Hennepin and Apex Predator.

Look: Light orange, tending to cloudy. Big foamy head which disappeared rather quickly.
Smell: some acidity, a bit of horse/Wet dog. I'm not a huge expert of the style but I like it.
Taste: entrance is surprisingly weak. Begins bready and fruity (banana perhaps), leaving a citrus aftertaste. Some funk as well. Still it's a bit lacking, given the smell which promised more funk within.
Feel: light and dry, as expected and appreciated. High carbonation
Overall: refreshing, complex enough, overall very enjoyable.

Champagne golden straw appearance with aroma and flavors of funk, sweet, dry lemon, hops, fruit, and grass with a dry crisp finish. Aged 18 months and was very refreshing.
