A: Top of the 750 was very clear but eventually hazed as the sediment was distributed. Heavy, thick sedimentary particles were visible. Creamy two and a half finger head. Amazing lacing and retention. Pale blonde in color.

S: Immediately out of the bottle I could detect citra and tropical smelling hops. Some peppery and citrus aromas come through as well as well as a slight tinge of alcohol as the beer warmed.

T: Perhaps the hops are the most dominant in this beer. They aren't overdone though and it doesn't taste like an IP-saison, if that's a thing. Bitterness is good and backing. Malt is very slightly sweet. Pepper and ester characters come through but take a bit of a back seat to the hops. Citra is the most prominent in the beer and I really don't get the piney flavors of something like Simcoe.

M: Absolutely bone dry, perhaps a bit much even for something like a saison. Carbonation is high but aids the beer in its refreshing quality.

O: Okay but it could have been better. Actual hop flavor wasn't really that close to the aroma. None the less though good beer just not everything I thought it was going to be.

Bottle 750ml. Pours a beautiful blonde with a thick rocky white head. Aroma is farmhouse (hay and barnyard) and nicely hopped, I can definitly smell citra hops. Very crisp and dry. Hop bitterness, cereal and belgiant yeast. Another awesome wild-ish saison by Dunham.
