Based off week old memories.

L: Golden color. Cloudy as sediment enters the glass. Creamy white head.

S: Cab Sauv grapes on the nose. Not overpowering but it lets you know it's there. A bit of citrus as well. Some belgian style yeast.

T: Not as complex as I thought it was going to be. A bit of citrus. A touch of bready pale malt. Some very slight vinous flavors. A slight citrus zest as well. Slight belgian ester profile, pear and apple would not be inaccurate flavor descriptors.

F: Nicely carbonated. bubbly and dry finishing.

O: I feel as though this one is over hyped. It looks fancy and comes from Goose Island so I can understand why, also know that this is just my personal opinion. Not quite as peppery as what I think a Saison should be, but it's pretty decent overall.
