Freehold Brewing Co. Lacy Saisy Saison – Saison at 5.8% ABV

Freehold Brewing Co. Lacy Saisy Saison Saison at 5.8% ABV (C$3.64 at Collective, 473 ml, packaged on 28-Sep-2018, acquired 13-Feb-2019, reviewed 17-Apr-2019)

Appearance: hazy medium gold with two fat fingers of loose pale ivory head diminishing gradually to nothing, minimal lacing. (3/5) Aroma: orchard fruit, grainy malt, white pepper, mild dry hay funk. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, medium duration bitter lightly funky finish. (4/5)

The can reverse asks the only question that really matters: “Would you have another?” And yes, I think I would. It’s slightly higher in ABV than I like to see in the style, and not particularly pretty (a bit more “muddy” than “hazy”) but at the end of the day, it ends up being decently refreshing, without too hefty a spice load. Works for me. (14/20)
