Fair Isle Brewing Season 1 Batch E

What the brewers say

Oak-aged saison with larch tips.

What our panel thought

Spicy, herbal aroma with sweeter notes of lemon wedges crushed for lemonade. Tart, lemony flavor with wheaty and spicy notes, riding on a lively mouthfeel to a dry, bitter, slightly harsh finish. Pleasant acidity but a bit one-note. Nicely quenching.

What our editors thought

Nose evokes the petrichor of impending rain, earthy and refreshing; a hint of lime adds an edge. In the sip, rooibos tea–like spice and a hard-kombucha hit bring a kinetic feeling of motion. Rhythmically pulses with waves of herbal energy.
