Fermentation pitched at 68, rose to 79 over the course of a week.

ABV: 7.26%

Look: Pale yellow orange, evervesent, not quite clear but translucent.

Aroma: Earthy Noble hop aroma, slight citrus, fruity, but hops do dominate the aroma.

Taste: Same as aroma, slightly spicy all the way through because of the Saaz and the yeast characteristics, has a slight pine flavor as well. Yeast doesn't shine as the star here but really melds with the earthy hops.

Mouthfeel: If I had to guess, I would say this finished at 1.010 or 1.012 and not at 1.000 like it did. It has an Amazing silky smooth and yet mildly full mouthfeel. Amazing for being 1.000

Drinkability: Very drinkable, refreshing, dry finish keeps you wanting more.

Nice looking recipe.. Hoppy!

I can't get over the 3711 mouthfeel. I had a basic Saison that finished at 1.001 and you'd never now.

1 Month Tasting, probably the last considering how fast this is getting drunk up by me lol...

Look: Pale yellow orange, effervescent, translucent but not clear, same as before.

Aroma: Citrus, Grapefruit in particular, slight lemon, faint pepper. Floral hops in the background mixed with the previously mentioned now dominant aromas

Taste: Initial starts with faint citrus fruit, just the faintest flavor of malic fruit and a moderate spicy character and finishes with a peppery aftertaste and lingering noble hope flavor in the late aftertaste

Mouthfeel: Body is very digestible and extremely drinkable, the complexity of flavors mask the FG of 1.000 and compliments it perfectly, any thicker and would be moderately overwhelming.

Drinkability: Extremely drinkable, I could drink this all day long. It doesnt fill you up like a higher FG brew and really hits the spot anyt time of day.
