Saison Du BUFF is light, sparkly, natural, and refreshing.
It poured light straw with a short fleeting white head that left thin but strong sticky rings. The smell was very subtle and nice with touches of natural minty lemon. The flavor was citric and lemony with a lingering metallic aftertaste, much like grapefruit rind. The feel was very bubbly with a bitter finish.
I prefer beer with more body, but The light sparkly feel of Saison Du BUFF, coupled with the subtle natural flavor, make it a refreshing hot weather beer.

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.
