Holy Mountain The Seer

This beer was picked out by Val because she loved the owl on the label.

ABV: 5.1%

Style: Saison/Farmhouse Ale

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “THE SEER IS A HOPPY SAISION BREWED WITH PILSNER MALT AND WHEAT, AND HOPPED AGGRESSIVELY WITH GALAXY AND EKG. THIS BATCH WAS FERMENTED WITH ONE OF OUR HOUSE SAISON CULTURES AND AGED IN AN OAK FOUDRE WITH BRETT. AFTER SPENDING 4 MONTHS IN OAK, THE SEER WAS DRY-HOPPED WITH GALAXY AND EKG AND CONDITIONED IN THE BOTTLE WITH BRETT.”

Random: This is a brewery out of Seattle, Washington.

The beer poured with a huge, four finger, fluffy, white head. It dissipated slowly, but left limited lacing on the glass. The body was hazy with a lot of floaties. It was bright yellow in color with a lot of carbonation. The nose started with a lot of brett and funk. It quickly went into pilsner malt. It had some wheat, along with grass and a touch of flowers. The taste started with the same funk and brett, but quickly went into some aggressive hops that came through with pine and grass. There was an earthy characteristic to it as well with some flowers. The body was on the lighter side with a lot of carbonation. The finish was lengthy with funk and hops. A bottle of this was $20.99, which came to $.95 per ounce, which was definitely expensive. I thought this beer was interesting, but there was so much going on with the flavors that it was hard to enjoy during some sips.

Untappd Rating: 3.5/5.0
