At Churchkey DC on draft poured into a tulip
A-Pours a clear golden hue with a finger and half of off white head.
S-Strong, nearly overwhelming, smells of sage, rosemary and thyme with a background of Belgian yeast and lemon pepper.
T-All the herbs, lemon pepper and yeast blend beautifully into a flavor unique from anything I've tasted before.
M-Dry and light allowing the herbs to shine before a lovely crisp finish.
O-Very unique Saison and would definitely recommend to fans of the style looking for something different.
Serving type: on-tap

A: Pours a cloudy gold with a mountainous, thick white head.
S: Aromas of funky, spicy yeast, minerals, crackers, biscuits, grass, straw, hay, lemon, thyme, sage, rosemary, and parsley fill the nose.
T: Strong notes of thyme, sage, rosemary, and parsley are present up front, chased by flavors of lemon, grass, straw, hay, lime zest, white pepper, biscuit, crackers, minerals, honey, bitter orange, and oaky, lactic funk. The finish is slick, spicy, and somewhat bitter with herb and citrus flavors underscored by pepper, biscuit, and yeast funk.
M: Surprisingly slight and airy in body, but it does thicken a bit once it settles in the mouth. Initially, this ale is somewhat dry, but quickly turns slick. Carbonation is incredibly active and intense. Alcohol is well masked, but overall it feels unfocused. Difficult to drink.
O: An interesting saison, but it could have been better. The flavors do not separate enough, and in terms of texture, this beer falls apart in the mouth. For me, it was somewhat difficult to drink. I'm glad I tried it, but it is still a missed opportunity.
