BEER INFO

Brewed by:

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.

Pours a straw yellow with a thinnish white head, large bubbles that disappear rather quickly but plenty of bubbles rising from the bottom constantly.

Smell is mostly sweet malt with some spiciness thrown in, yeasty with a mild coriander presence.

Taste starts out with a slight bubblegum flavor, quickly dissipates which leads to a yeasty spiciness, sweet malts finishes, hop presence is minimal, medium-high carbonation with a crisp finish.

Clear golden colored beer with a puffy white colored head.

Smells floral and spicy with a powdery yeast scent. Smells sweet with a fair aroma of coriander. Scents of summer flowers and a faint bubblegum scent.

Starts out mildly sweet with a quick drying flash of spice. Lemon and pepper with fainter taste of mineral water and bubblegum. Moderate bitterness. Taste of flora but no fauna.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall this is a tasty Saison.
