4.04/5 rDev -1.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a teku.
A: Golden hue. Rising effervescence throughout. Pours a 1 finger, bubbly, white head. Dissipates quickly leaving a smattering of bubbles on the surface. Slight lacing.
S: Yeast is prominent...kind of like lightly buttered sourdough..., a bit of funky fermented raspberry, and some lemon zest.
T: Yeasty and frambois-y. Tastes like is smells. A little citrus pith, and coriander in there.
M: Kind of a syrupy feel. A little "thicker" than expected. A slight steely finish, but mostly any aftertaste fades quickly.
D: Sip and savor the flavor.
Atmosphere is pretty strong. Nice coloration, continually rising effervescence, decent head, and some spotty lacing. Nose is yeasty with fermented fruit and citrus. Funky flavor... yeast, tangy raspberry, citrus, and spice... all lightly applied. Overall, this is a really good quaff.

Served on tap. Pours a slightly cloudy orange with lots of head and great retention. The nose features some saisony farmhouse yeast up front with some light tartness. The gentle hops come through along with some fruity notes. The taste features orange and lemon along with hints of black pepper. There is a light flash of tartness towards the end paired with a bit of spice. Mouthfeel is light and refreshing. Overall, this is a pretty straight forward and relatively tame saison. Nothing bad about it, just nothing too exciting.
Serving type: on-tap
