3.55/5 rDev -2.7%
Cloudy golden pour with a minimal white head. Really nice sour smell with just a bit of yeast and clove. Taste is really nice with lots of yeast and spicy upfront. There’s also a good mildly tart lemon presence that lingers through from start to finish. Finish with a slightly tart citrus flavor.

This one pours a semi-cloudy golden color and hs a nice white bubbly white head that is quickly settled and leaves little to no lacing down the glass.
The nose is spicy hops with breadiness and hints of cloves, lemon zest all riding on a bed of rich maltiness.
The taste is drier and more bitter than I would expect for a Farmhouse ale, but it is from Texas. This one is dry in flavor that has a subdued malt that carries the hops all across the palate with a nice dominant flavor that is not too bitter and doesn't linger and has a clean finish.
The mouthfeel is a tad watery but acceptable for the style.
Overall it is drinkable and enjoyable and I will definitely drink some more. A good offering from Southern star.

A – Hazy yet kind of clear; very translucent. A light amber with some yellow-green. Gives off a nice goldenish glow when backlit.
S – A nice sweet, bready Belgian smell, with a hint of green apple and straw. Some orange and honeydew from the Belgian scent, along with the bready, sugary goodness.
T – Taste follows smell closely. It fades quicker than I’d like. It tastes very much like a saison, and there is added hop flavor on the backend (in addition to the flavors that match the smell). I’m getting a sweet lemon upfront, then a bit of Belgian sweet bread and apple, but not as much as I’d like, and some spicy grass on the backend from the hops. As it warms, the last flavor lingers longer, but the middle Belgian flavor fails to come out.
M – A heavy-light body that slightly clings to the tongue. Finish is both wet and dry depending on location in the mouth. Moving outward from the tongue: dry, semi-wet, semi-dry. The carbonation spikes in the middle, which I don’t like. It lends itself to the refreshingness of the beer, but then goes a bit too far.
D – The smell is great, except for the slight off-smells. The taste follows the smell, but doesn’t express the Belgian character well enough, and fades a bit fast. The mouthfeel is refreshing, yet peaks a little too hard.
4.25, 4, 3.5, 3.5, 3.75; 3.7.
