North Coast Puck The Beer
North Coast Puck The Beer is a Saison/Farmhouse Ale. They are calling this a “Petite Saison” that comes in right around 4% ABV.
This pours with a very clear golden hay type color with a good fluffy head atop the beer. The aroma is mild but nice, slightly sour and bready with some floral notes of lavender. Although not a huge beer, the taste is a bit sharp and surprising at first. A big player in the flavor is some Brett like funkiness, then add to that some spicy yeast, lemon and green apple. The finish is rather dry and lingers on for a while.
This reminds me a good bit of Brooklyn 1/2 Ale, a solid and more traditional type of Belgian style Saison.
