Rockwell Beer Company Polymath
What the brewers say
Mixed-fermentation spelt saison aged In American oak foeder.
What our panel thought
Oak and vanilla dominate the aroma, with notes of cherry pie, dank earth, tobacco, and leather. In the flavor, lemony-lactic tartness, oak tannin, and earthy hops. Acidity refreshes without overwhelming. The oak seems overdone but acceptable. Well-made but indistinct. Enjoyable.
What our editors thought
Melon with a light linen edge on the nose—understated yet characterful. The sip brings strong tropical citrus and melon notes, defined by a pronounced acidity and punctuated with tight tannic trills. A touch heavy-handed.
