look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
A: Extremely blonde in color presenting a clear gorgeous body that resembles a pilsner/lager
S: The nose is moderately aromatic pushing forth the sage and thyme. Decent nose, more unusual but interesting
T: This saison has been my favorite ever since it was released the first time awhile back. The sage and rosemary are phenomenal will light citrus pulling through at the end
M: A great offering that is dry and bursting with flavor
O: I fell in love with this beer when it first came and i am so amped it came out again. Easily my favorite Saison. I could drink this all day.

3.79/5 rDev 0%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75
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.
