Ale Aged in Oak Tanks – Holy Mountain Brewing
If you drink craft beer – if you search out the best – you are at some point bound to stumble upon Holy Mountain Brewing out of Seattle. Without having ever visited the brewery you can still tell there’s a certain attitude that surrounds it. The kind of attitude that quite honestly I am attracted to so when the opportunity to get some came across my desk – almost literally I jumped at it and was rewarded with the Seer. The label is sweet, the beer is legit and now I need more of it.
Shouts to the Boss Lady for bringing it back for me.
Tagline: A Hoppy Saison brewed with wheat and aged in Oak with Brett
Visual: A hazy light gold to almost straw color – pours with medium to small head.
Aroma: The first sniff hits you with light funk followed by hints of wheat and a bit of something floral and citrusy – lemon in nature.
Taste: The beer pops with funky and earthy goodness with a balanced but upfront carbonation. The funk lingers as you get hints of lemon and still finishes light and crisp. It’s crushable and complex – this is the type of saison I love to chase down and enjoy.
Overall Beer Rating: 9 out of 10 spades
