Exceptionally tart and crisp; a bright and excellent example of a farmhouse ale

Poured from 12 oz. bottle to goblet.

A: Hazy pale yellow, with a white 1 in. head.
S: Orange zest, lemongrass, peppercorn, dill, and olive brine.
T: A lot of lemon/orange flavors, with a bit of spicy yeast qualities that add character to the fruit. Finishes crisp.
M: Light to medium. Creamy.
O: Not a bad saison. A bit too fruity for me.

Cloudy and light froth. Good rendition of style. A bit more bread/yeast flavor would be nice but that's personal preference. Lasting spice on the pallette. Amazing no see of citrus.
