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.
