Smuttynose Hayseed is a Saison/Farmhouse Ale, 3.8% ABV.
This pours with an exceptionally light yellow color with just a bit of haze. A bit too much carbonation on the pour, but it thankfully doesn’t translate too much in the mouth-feel. The aroma is nearly nonexistent, just a hint of lemongrass and the smell of over carbonation. I do like the flavor of this low ABV beer, but I just really want more of it. The flavor brings some light yeast and lemon rind, a bit of straw and coriander, then some mildly sweet grain on the finish.
There is nothing technically wrong with this beer (I like the fact that it fits within the traditional style guidelines), but unfortunately is is kind of bland overall.
