The Perfect Crime

Indeed it is.

As far as sessionable (you can drink a ton if it) goes this saison / farmhouse ale totally fits the bill. It comes in at a respectable 6.8% ABV but it won't knock you for a loop. The brew pours easily with minimal head; so if you're the kind of person that absolutely despises heady beer then this is the beer for you. It has a very smooth feel to it with an earthy flavor that has just a hint of fruit at the tip and a smokey finish.

Being a collaboration between Stone, Evil Twin, and Stillwater I was expecting it to really knock my socks off. Don't get me wrong, it was good...just not OMG amazing. It did however go very well with the Breezeway Burger I whipped together for lunch :)

Flavor Country.

I upped the ante on the burger and went with grass fed beef. There was an obvious difference in the flavor with this higher quality of meat. After this beer and hefty meat creation I was pretty stuffed. A pleasant nap was had :)

 If I had to give this beer a rating (which I guess i'm doing now?) I'd give it a 3.75 out of 5. Definitely give it a shot if you come across it...but don't go out of your way to get it.
