Maisonette Tasting

Appearance- bright pale gold, cloudy with a billowy white head that lasts and lasts.

Smell- citrus, funk, berry, hay. The "funk" that dominates on first sniff seems to be an earthy hop derived character that fades to increased grapefruit peel, fresh fields, and the fruity berry that is mosaic.

Taste- lightly tart, fruity, citrus, pear, a little of that funk from the nose- whether it is hop or yeast derived- shows in middle. Finish is a lingering mild bitterness. Fairly juicy and refreshing.

Mouthfeel- medium bodied but finishing somewhat dry. This seems to work perfectly for this beer making it super mouth filling but also quenching.

Overall- a very good beer though a slight step down from the previous version that used a different yeast. I really like what this yeast brings to the table and will definitely pitch it again in another saison but would've liked the hops to be able to dominate more in this particular beer.
