look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured from 375 bottle into a New Belgium Tulip

Appearance: hazy dark yellow. Initially a very frothy, impressive head that dissipates rather quickly.

Smell: not overly aromatic. Slightly grassy. Lemons.

Taste: Dry. Wow. That yeast really kicked up some phenols. Slightly bitter but mostly spicy. Kind of peppery. Lemons up front with a slight tropical fruit aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: This beer would be great with food. The palate scrubbing capability of this beer is very high. Holding this beer in your mouth is equivalent to having pop rocks in your mouth.

Overall: Not a bad Saison. I will visit this again in the future.
