What the brewer says

“Foeder-fer­mented, acid-for­ward, Amer­i­can-in­spired sai­son.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Lots of light fruity aro­mas, es­pe­cially le­mon, backed by wheat char­ac­ter. Ber­liner-like, but with more fla­vor and char­ac­ter. Funky barn­yard hay.” Fla­vor: “Le­mon tart­ness and wheat notes fol­lowed by mod­er­ate barn­yard funk. Finishes with lots of light sweet fruit fla­vors. Has a hint of sour on the back end.” Over­all: “Well-bal­anced, tart, mod­ern Amer­i­can in­ter­pre­ta­tion of a tart sai­son. Wheat char­ac­ter is ap­pro­pri­ate and en­joy­able. High car­bon­a­tion adds to the live­li­ness. Very light and re­fresh­ing.”
