Wellspent Brewing Company Wandering Lights
What the brewers say
A blend of fresh and barrel-aged saisons, fermented with house Brettanomyces and lightly dry hopped.
What our panel thought
Fresh floral-lemon-pepper hop aroma is assertive and enticing, followed by earthy forest-rain funk. Initial hit of lemon-citrus tickles the tongue—lightly sour, with some pleasant barrel notes. Crisp hop bitterness with a long finish—perhaps a bit astringent.
What our editors thought
Subtle, crisp nose with orange peel, pepper, and light botanicals. The sip is soft and cottony as it slips to the back of the tongue with a broad swath of light pepper. Mild acidity and a gin-like herbal dryness contribute to the clean sip and finish.
