4.28/5 rDev +10%
Cork sealed small format bottle served cold in glass beer challis at Fat Pour, Chicago
A) Hazy, golden brass with billowy off white head
S) Lemon zest, alcohol esthers, sour dough & apricots
T) Outstanding - sweet caramel malts, mild hops, apple pie & other yummy baked goods
M) Well balanced, medium body. Alcohol is a bit high for the style but hardly noticable
O) Thoroughly enjoyed this beer but note: found it closer to a traditional Belgian blonde than Saison. Another good beer from the folks at North Coast.

Poured from a 22 oz bomber into a tulip glass.
A: Pours a golden yellow with a light and fluffy head. decent head retention with tons of carbonation evident.
S: Very lemony with some zest and spice. Getting strong bready aroma as well.
T: Taste of a lemon bread with a tart dry finish. Light and refreshing.
M: Light to medium bodied, tons of carbonation on the tongue with a dry finish.
O: Very solid above average Saison. Great to drink during the day while doing an activity.
