375 ml poured into a tulip.

A: Very clear light orange color with a quick dissipating head with no lacing once gone. Medium to high carbonation.

S: Clean smelling with hints of spices and mainly citrus. Not mutch though.

T: Very clean with citrus like fruitiness and hints op spice. Not much yeast character for a saison from most likely using fast attenuating yeast with not mutch character.

M: Bitterness and fruity citrus character lingers with some spice. Alcohol also comes through even though its on the lower side compared to other saisons.

O: Too clean for my liking but glad to satisfy my curiosity. I'm glad I bought a single 375ml instead of a 750 ml or a 4 pack. Not a bad beer just not interesting compared to others.
