NOTES: Bottle @ McHops Monastery

STYLE: Saison

ABV: 7.3%

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
