3.59/5  rDev +4.1%

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

Appearance: straw gold, with not much of a head.

Aroma: spicy yeast and some resin from the hops.

Taste: peppery spice from the yeast and bitter resin/pine from moderate hopping. Sweet crisp base malt with a delicious malty aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied, medium-high carbonation. Smooth yet somewhat bubbly.

Overall: one of the better "traditional" Saisons I've had. And by traditional I mean in the style of Dupont. An excellent combination of yeast, hops and malt!
