Saison/Farmhouse Ale
16.9oz, Single
Pours a big frothy head three fingers high, very whipped up and sizzles away quickly, close to zero lacing. Cloudy light yellow color, sort of washed out, even through the haze there's a visible storm of bubbles. The lime comes through clearly on the nose, notes of lemongrass, mint, the wheat is subdued and it's smooth and not overly grainy, peach to apricot, pear fruit, simple but not unpleasant, the lime more dominant as it warms. Medium-bodied, quite fizzy mouth feel, otherwise soft and generously spreads widely. The lime citrus comes with lemon touches. On the whole it's clean and not that easy to get the brett influence. More obvious wheat though, has a sweet graininess. Fresh "golden ale" feel with a citrusy tropical edge, even if there's no real tropical fruit such as pineapple, papaya, staying in apple, apricot, peach territory. Sort of peters out at the end.
