Opal – Firestone Walker (Bi-Weekly Beer Review Episode 1)

Bi-Weekly Beer Review Episode 1
Opal – Firestone Walker – Paso Robles, CA – Dry Hoped Saison – ABV 7.5%
Bright yellow color with a nice white head, Cloudy and bubbly. Light fresh fruity scent, the hops come through the nose after you get through the sweet fruit scent. Light sweet hops and citrus taste is the first thing I get. The dry but sweet hop flavor reminds me of a Belgian white ale. It is much bolder and full flavored then the lil Opal. Light consistency but heavy carbonation in the mouth. This was not what I expected but it is a high quality beer. I give it a 4 out of 5
