What the brewer says

“This sai­son is 100 per­cent oak­fer­mented and full of fla­vor. This beer’s dry, crisp, and re­fresh­ing light cit­rus fla­vor is com­ple­mented with a slight

Bret­tanomyces funk.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Or­ange, ba­nana, and straw­berry. Bready. Leather, horse blan­ket. Earthy hops aro­mas.” Fla­vor: “Low sweet­ness to be­gin, with a mix of bit­ter­ness and acid­ity in the fin­ish. Earthy hops fla­vors (grassy, onion, green pep­per). Min­i­mal sour­ness/ tart­ness and a some­what thin body. Nice lin­ger­ing fer­men­ta­tion com­plex­ity in the af­ter­taste.” Over­all: “Wild and crisp, but some­what one-di­men­sional. Lots of Brett char­ac­ter­is­tic but not much com­plex­ity.”
