3.73/5 rDev -1.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Poured from a 12oz bottle into a tulip glass.
a: slight orange straw colored. thick fluffy head with nice lacing and plenty of carbonation.
s: It smells very belgiany. The aroma of yeast and spices are most noticeable
t: The herbs used in the brew, parsley sage rosemary and thyme are definatley noticeable but not overpowering. They are very pleasant. It seems these herbs are used the same way hops would be used to impart flavor. Very different.
m: Thin, dry and highly carbonated.
d: Although I really enjoy this beer I doubt I would be able to drink more than 1 or 2 of these in a sitting.

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.
