look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
cloudy yellow-orange in appearance. thin white head clears quickly leaving very little sign of there being any to begin with. smells like chicken stock, which I like. lots of herbs like rosemary, sage, parsley and thyme with some lemon rind in there also. taste is kinda chicken stockish, but better. the herbs and citrus blend well to make for a tasty treat. mouthfeel seems kinda creamy and buttery. carbonation is present on the tongue, unlike in the appearance. a little dry on the finish but not too much. overall this was rather tasty and didn't last long, so i must of really liked it.

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.
