look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

12 oz bottle was poured into a snifter.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer quickly. It is a hazy golden straw yellow with some vision of bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: Pepper spiciness, vanilla, pilsner malts, apple, pear, powdery yeast, and a

Taste: Same as above. Nice and traditional and no one flavor overpowers the other.

Mouthfeel: A bit smooth, medium to high carbonation, a little dry, medium bodied, a little spicy, and a little chewy.

Overall: Pretty awesome saison. It's been awhile, but I'll enjoy more in the near future.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - bright, cloudy yellow with a loose, bubbly head that fades quickly

S - lemon, a bit tart

T - lemon zest, a hint of orange, faint yeast, fruity

M - medium bodied, well carbonated, a bit crisp, a bit warm in the finish

This is a rather refreshing Saison. It has a nice citrusy, fruity flavor that is balanced and enjoyable. It's also easy to drink. I will probably pick this up again.
