4.38/5  rDev +6.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A. A pale yellow hazy color with champagne-like effervescence. Thick white head diisipates quickly, leaves a nice lacing.

S. Orange and lemon citrus notes with some yeasty sour hints and a slight spiciness (cloves, nutmeg).

T. Orange citrus predominant along with some fruit and yeastiness. A very refreshing Saison taste.

M. Pleasant prickly carbonation tickles the tongue. Light to medium body, Crisp and refreshing, finishes dry with a lingering citrus lift.

O. Best American version of a Saison I've had so far. Highly drinkaable. Charming and seductive, you will be amused by it's naive presumption.
