3.98/5 rDev +5.6%
Pours a bright sunshine yellow with a huge creamy, effervescent head that airily flops its way from three + fingers to two. Excellent retention; sticky foamy lacing.
Warm, sweet, and spicy. Dandelions, honey, eraser, baking spices, white pepper.
Dry and hoppy with dirty, earthy flavors. Not tons going on.
Light bodied with good carbonation and a velvet feel. Easy drinking, smooth finish, quenches the old thirst.
Nice dry saison.
Fairly unobtrusive and almost lacking in the flavor department this beer is otherwise pretty good. Indeed, it sends like ss textbook saison to me. Tasty, sufficiently hoppy, pretty, pretty bottle.
Would have again; worth a try.

A: A nice blonde color topped with a soapy white looking head. Lacing was good as was retention.
S: Spices and belgian yeast.
T: A touch more bitter then I would have expected but that's okay it was still good, just unexpected. The Belgian yeast character is very prominent and provides some interesting spice phenol's. Coriander and clove are most apparent. A bit of sweet malt is around although not that much. Everything is tied together well.
M: Very very thin. This is a good thing for a Saison I suppose though as it makes it very drinkable. Maybe a bit too thin for my liking though honestly. Carbonation is nice and makes for a champagne like body and appearance.
O: A pretty good beer. Not worth the high price point in my opinion but still pretty good. I haven't had too many saisons so its difficult to give an accurate rating but it was good , not spectacular, but still quite nice.

Appearance: It has a clear pale golden/yellow color to it. It has a nice thick white head that dies down moderately slow and leaves some nice lacing.
Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of grass, lemon, peppery spices and some bready yeast.
Taste: Like the aromas, it has a some definite lemon/grass, an earthy bitterness, peppery spices, faint malts and some yeast.
Mouthfeel: It has a med/high carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.
Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with decent flavors and aromas.

On tap at Vices & Versa.
Pours a pale straw colour with mild haze. Bubbly white head decent retention, with foamy lace. Steady bead. Bit pale, but decent.
Smells slightly rustic but mostly vinous. Touch of Chardonnay oak, dried grass and rosemary. Bit simple, but decent enough characters.
Taste is funky, barnyardy upfront. Develops vinous grape notes midway, slightly tart, then a bitter but also slightly yeasty and almost chalky finish. Still retains some funk, but doesn't quite burst with fresh flavours. Alright.
Bit of sizzle, OK body but not great.
Seems a little like a homebrew saison, with a saison yeast strain and not much else crafting wise. Drinkable enough.

Bottle: Poured hazy dirty beige color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of rustic malt notes with some dry floral aroma notes with light peppery yeast notes. Taste is dominated by refreshing and easy drinking rustic malt notes with dry floral notes and a peppery yeast finish. Body is quite full with limited filtration and good carbonation. Easy drinking with just enough complexity and good attenuation with limited residual sugar notes.

Thank you montrealbcr89!!
Appearance. Pours a hazy, light straw-gold with a finger of thick white head that leaves some nice bands of lace.
Smell. Lemon, earthy and herbal hops, some light saison yeast and wheat and a faint whiff of banana and spice. So far so good.
Taste. Spicy saison yeast and bitter lemon zest, bitter earthy hops and some very light spice. Lingering lemon zest bitterness.
Mouthfeel. Medium body, perhaps a little lighter than. Medium-strong, fine carbonation.
Overall. Lots of flavour, though maybe a little on the bitter side. One of the best saison's in the country that I've had the pleasure (and more often displeasure) of trying. Nice work Dunham.
