Not really impressed by this offering. Some what adjunctish flavor and aromas. Just a bit on the syrupy sweet side. Pours a clear yellow with a fluffy tan head. Taste and nose are quite sweet with a subtle Belgian yeast and floral hop presence. Some fruity spices. Medium body is overly carbonated.

12oz bottle poured into pint glass.

A - pours a chill hazed straw yellow, 1" white head formation. Slick lacing that didn't cling

S - Some funkiness and tart. Lemons, pepper, yeast

T - A tangy lemony flavour with an odd, almost sour funkiness to it. I don't expect Saison/farmhouses to be this tart, maybe it is just me.

M - Light, crisp, dry

O - Average saison, a bit too tart but not bad.
