BEER INFO

Brewed by:
21st Amendment Brewery
California, United States
21st-amendment.com

Style: Saison / Farmhouse Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.20%

Availability: Winter

Notes / Commercial Description:
You might not expect a Saison in winter. But the enemy didn’t expect Washington to cross the icy Delaware, either. Expectations be damned, we say. We’re sneaking up on winter with a boatload of bravado and this Belgian-style farmhouse ale. Dry hopped with whole organic cardamom pods, our Saison has an assertive spiciness. In your face, winter.

A: The beer is relatively clear light yellow in color and has a light to moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high bright white head that died down, leaving a small patch of bubbles on the surface, a thin collar around the edge, and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of cardamom are present in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the taste is dominated by flavors of cardamom and also has some hints of other spices.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and rather dry on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This dryness and relatively light body makes this beer particularly refreshing. It really imparts lots of nice aromas and flavors of cardamom.

Serving type: can
