KC Bier Co. Der Bauer

What the brewers say

“A hazy golden farmhouse ale that’s dry, crisp, and effervescent with fruity esters, citrus hops aromas, rustic yeast flavors, and a silky-smooth finish.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Orange, tangerine, lemon, and white grape with peppery spice. Earthy hops aromas (lemongrass, onion, slight citrus). Peppery phenolics. Bready malt. Saison character hiding behind the hops.”

Flavor: “Bucket o’ melon, orange, peach, bready malt, spicy and drying alcohol, bone-dry finish assisted by the alcohol. Spicy pepper phenolics. Moderately low sweetness with moderate bitterness.”

Overall: “A wonderfully dry-hopped saison with New School hops from the Old World. The hops character blends seamlessly with the esters from the yeast. Quite citrus-forward but balanced.”
