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.

Pours a very hazy pale yellow color with an ultra bright white head, good lacing. Tart like fruitiness and phenolic tang on the nose. A touch sour. Faint dried banana and bubble gum.

Tart apple and pear with a touch of tropical fruit up front. Some medicinal flavors around mid palate, enough just to balance the sweetness, coupled by a spicy grassy yeast presence and a bright clean finish. Sour, yet subdued, fruity yet dry, complex yet pleasant. An overall fantastic and complex beer with incredible layers of flavor, perfect for spring, the only thing i could ask is for a bit less phenolic flavors. Otherwise, nothing less than great from Great Divide.
