Another Sierra Nevada I have been looking forward to drinking this summer, but have not had a chance yet.

A: Pours a light, golden color with a 2 1/2 in bright whit head.

S: The smell is somewhat of Lemon Grass followed by a malt sweetness. A little honey and orange undertones, with a bready blandness at the finish!

T: Definitely a Saison type character with the grassy notes and lemon sweetness. No banana, but has some tropical fruit characteristics with hints of honey and bready notes that compliment the dryness of the finish.

M: Not a lot of carbonation, but a fruity, sweet character to this summer beer.

O: Very drinkable but complex, just like Sierras Nevada does it. I like the style as well as their other brews. Too bad I took so long to try this, would have been a session beer for me. A very unique summer ale for those trying to deviate from the norm!
