What the brewer says

“Our new­est sai­son is a blend of fresh sum­mer fla­vors. The tart sweet­ness of ripe blue­ber­ries com­bined with the flo­ral warmth of thyme evoke gar­den mem­o­ries in this culi­nary-in­spired brew.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “If you’ve got the money, I’ve got the thyme. And this beer has plenty to spare. It smells like tak­ing fresh thyme with some rose­mary and grind­ing it with a mor­tar and pes­tle. Very light blue­berry and a light malt sweet­ness with a touch a smoke.” Fla­vor: “The first sip isn’t as in­tense as the aroma. There is a Bel­gian-like char­ac­ter to this beer with grapes, plums, and blue­ber­ries that tran­si­tions into a light thyme fla­vor that grows to mod­er­ate by the end of the glass. Heavy body with light car­bon­a­tion and a touch of al­co­hol warm­ing and smoke.” Over­all: “There is a nice com­plex­ity and the blend be­tween the earthy spice and thyme with fruit sweet­ness. Some might find it a bit too her­bal. A beer to cook with.” 86 AROMA: 11 AP­PEAR­ANCE: 3 FLA­VOR: 17 MOUTH­FEEL: 3 OVER­ALL: 8
