Actual Brewing Ingenuity Lemongrass Saison (7/10)

Columbus' own Actual Brewing makes Ingenuity, a Saison ale brewed with lemongrass.  They say it "tastes like lemonbears, summer nights and big ideas" and that you'll "probably need to quit your day job and build that thing you've been dreaming about" when you drink it.

Ingenuity pours a slightly cloudy amber color with white head that doesn't last long.

The aroma is mildly hoppy and bitter.  I can't pick out the lemongrass or malt in this one.

The flavor begins malty and sweet, then turns a bit bitter and fruity.  All in all, it's a nice beer but not one of my favorites.  It definitely didn't inspire me to quit my day job.

There aren't many reviews on Beer Advocate for Ingenuity at this time.  What's there works out to about 3.9 out of 5 or just under 8 out of 10.  Rate Beer has few reviews also, but those which are recorded work out to an average in the 6.9 out of 10 range.  These are in line with my rating of 7 out of 10.

Ingenuity is available at a number of places around town, including the brewery's taproom.  This link to will help you find somewhere you can try it.
