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

12 oz bottle, poured into a goblet

Appearance: Pours a beautiful, golden, rust color with lots of orange highlights and a quarter of a finger of white-colored head that quickly dissolved away into a thin halo of foam that gripped the sides of the glass.

Aroma: Nice aromas of toasted malt, imparting notes of freshly toasted English muffins or French baguettes. There are lots of orange and grapefruit-like citrus aromas as well as some honey and spices such as coriander, black pepper, and maybe a touch of ginger.

Taste: Exactly like the aroma. There’s lots of toasted malt up front, imparting bready flavors of freshly toasted English muffins or French baguettes, followed by some honey-like sweetness, lemony/orange/grapefruit-like citrus and spices such as coriander, black pepper, and maybe a touch of ginger and saffron.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied and pretty effervescent as there is some good carbonation. With an ABV of 6.0%, there is no alcohol on the palate.

Overall: This is a descent American Saison. It has good flavors of toasted malt, citrus and spices. Good quaff.

3.61/5  rDev +4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: hazy, golden orange; big frothy off-white head; decent lacing

Smell: sweet, candy-like aroma with coriander; some of that farmhouse funk; smells delicious

Taste: sweet malts on start; jumps to sour, grapefruit-pithe like bitterness; finishes slightly dry and sour with a finish like you bit into a citrus peel; more like a US-IPA finish

Mouthfeel: slightly thin and lightly carbed

Remarks: not too bad overall, but not great, either
