Birds Fly South Rumblefish

What the brewers say

“An open-fermented white-wine solera with Calypso and Citra hops.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Earthy (lemongrass, onion) and citrus (lemon, grapefruit) hops. Some resinous pine and a bit of skunk. Slightly tropical. Slight Brett funk. Bready malt. A spicy oak finish.”

Flavor: “Dry and funky. Earthy hops (onion, lemongrass) finish. Slight tartness. No sourness. Slight acidity. More dry/tart than sour, and that dryness is amplified by the significant bitterness. Light clean bready pale malt background. Nice wild Brett/woody character in the aftertaste.”

Overall: “Noble hops mixed with New World hops character in a slightly funky saison. More dry and tart than overtly sour or acidic. The lightstruck note suggests this may have been packaged in a green bottle. Nice fresh citrus flavor draws the drinker back for another sip.”
