Poured from a 12 oz can, into a footed tulip.

A: Orange-ish golden hue. Pours a quarter finger, bubbly, white head. Dissipates very quickly. Very sparse lacing.

S: Orange, cherry, and raspberry with a little bit of breadiness.

T: White bread and hay. Accentuated with very slight hints of fruity sweetness.

M: Light but does have something of a syrupy texture. The little bit of fruit accentuates, come out in the finish and linger momentarily on the palate.

D: Not much resistance, but does have something of a savoring quality.

Atmosphere is pretty decent. Interesting hue, slight head, and very little lacing. Nose is fruity and bready... well-balanced. Bready flavor accentuated with just a faintness of fruit. Light, crisp, and well-orchestrated. Overall, this is a good quaff.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

For whatever reason, "Walloon" always sounded like an insult of sorts to me. Anyway, this stuff pours a lightly hazy brass-gold topped by a finger of off-white foam. The nose comprises light Belgian yeast, very light biscuit, light banana peel, and a light twinge of lemon peel. The taste brings in more of the same, though now the flavors are a touch brighter, and there's a hint of coriander in the air (the air in my mouth, anyway). The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, a solid little farmhouse ale; nothing special by any means, but I could see enjoying this from time to time.

A - From can to pint glass, pours with minimal violence, leaving an orange fog with a mealy, white head. Lace dissipates and descends quickly

S - Wheat and Citrus aroma, resembling a Hefe.

T - A subtle Saison, but simplified.

MF - hits a midpoint as far as weight goes, with little gas.

O - Southern Star puts out year-rounds that are more exciting. This beer, although not on par with the others in it's class, will definitely serve as a Gateway beer into the craft world for all those BMC devotees.

Thanks to Shoky_01 for this

App- A cloudy mix of oranges, yellows, gold and a little bit of white. A bit hazy and not easily see through. A nice one finger white capped head is there and then gone. Doesnt really leave any cling either.

Smell- Its a saison but just smaller. Has some citrus, wheat, yeast and a little bit of a hay aroma. Smelled nice enough, but was just kinda there.

Taste- I really wish I wouldve had a supply of this in So.Cal when it was 100+ degrees out. This really hit the spot. All the nice flavors and layers of a Saison but just toned down, so you dont get knocked on your ass. Was a bit wet instead of dry and added a bit of citrus as well.

Mouth- A nice lighter medium body with a fairly medium to high carbonation. A bit smooth and wet on the finish. Residual yeast, hay and citrus flavors.

Drink- This was really tasty. I enjoyed it alot. I might have to search out more for the style. Good beer.
