Poured into a chalice: color is gold, head is feint and thin then dissipates to nothing.

Aroma is wheat, biscuit, malts and some light fruitiness from the fermentation

Taste is well balanced in malt sweeter flavors and dryness from the farmhouse yeast

Mouthfeel is sweet at first then drying and crisp

On tap at TCB in Iowa City, served in a pint glass.

A: A cloudy, hazy gold beer, which had no head to speak of when it arrived. Lacing was minimal as well.

S: Smelled as a wheat beer using Belgian yeast might, along with a metallic sour note.

T: The taste followed the smell rather closely: a solid wheat beer laden with Belgian-esque yeast and a citric-metallic sourness. The taste opened with lemon and wheat, with the sour flavors developing through the middle and lingering on the finish.

M: Verging on medium-bodied, with lovely carbonation.

O: Not a bad saison. Would drink again.
