Pours out a light orange and yellow color, mostly orange, solid 2/3" head on it, white in color, small bubbles making up the head. Aroma was mildly citrus, in a non hop delivered way.
Taste, citrus, pepper, dry cracker malt mouthfeel. Alcohol well integrated. Carbonation is lively and appropriate. The pepper and citrus presence are pretty much existing in equal proportion on the tongue. Avoided a harsh belgian yeast presence, that was nice, thank you.
This is probably bigger than your average saison. But it does the trick, its impressive, and the old lady really likes it. I think its pretty good too.
