APPEARANCE: Hazy, pale gold
HEAD: White, very generous, but very fast-fading
LACING: Unimpressive…just splotches around the rim of the glass
NOSE: Clean, grassy, wheat aroma with lots and lots of aggressive spice (white pepper and cloves). Plus plenty of lemon zest and a teeny-tiny hint of yeast funk.
TASTE: A wee bit sour and citric before mellowing out to a tasty, but unremarkable sweet malt backbone. Finish is dry with a refreshing, but subdued bitterness.
MOUTHFEEL: Good carbonation, but it drinks a little light and overly foamy.
DRINKABILITY: Average. Great Divide is a phenomenal brewery, but this isn’t my favorite by them. To be fair, I’m rarely blown away by Saisons.
RATING: 2.5 Hops
