4.03/5 rDev +1.3%
22oz bottle into Duvel tulip.
Appearance: Free pour yields a 3/4 inch frothy white head that dissipates quickly. Pours a hazy orange-tinged yellow. No lacing to speak of.
Smell: Orange and a floral, cologne-like Belgian yeast aroma. Pretty citrusy and understated.
Taste: Spicy rye up front, along with some lemon/grapefruit citrus flavor, leading to a lot of malt and grain flavors held up by the fullish body and a constant undertone of a really classy Belgian yeast... This yeast flavor is great. Finishes very dry with a lingering lemon/grapefruit aftertaste.
Very impressively crafted beer; balanced just right, tons of flavor for the ABV but not overwhelming or brash, prominent rye that doesn't steal the whole flavor, excellent body.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, with a bit of a full feel (I assume from the oats). High side of moderate carbonation. Very dry, which I love.
Overall: Excellent beer. Seems to have some subtly incorporated citrusy American hops, a great yeast flavor profile, and an almost perfect mouthfeel. This is a beer to win arguments against people who think low ABV means boring flavor.

22oz bottle poured into a wine glass. Batch 138, Bottle #14
Pours a nice deep dark amber with some hints of orange. Very small white head with some light white lacing. Nose is wheaty with soe light Rye - which I love. A tinge of belgian yeast finishes it off.
Taste is dry and a bit fruity, there's a nice bite from the Rye that's very nice. It finishes really quick and clean, it's almost a bit flat though, not in carbonation (which is done nicely) but in flavor. It's like the body should linger a little longer. As I'm thinking it more I'm starting to like it more though. Still fairly hoppy for a Saison, like all of Seans beers! Overall it's pretty solid!

Thanks to baconsausage for this one!
Pours a hazy golden yellow. A lot of white head off the pour that dissipates quickly. Smells spicy from the rye. Sme nice saison funk underneath. Tastes similar. Surprisingly flavorful for 4.5 percent. Well carbonated and enjoyable.

Enjoyed on tap at the Prohibition Pg. White foam on cloudy yellow. A good spiciness,an understated citrus, more sweet than bitter, rye edginess, pepper. Very tasty, much flavour for lower abv. Above average saison.Carbonation does not get in the way.

Thanks to starrdogg for opening this bottle at last night's mini-tasting. Served in a Hill Farmstead long-stem tulip.
Poured a nice clear golden color with a good white head and some spotty lacing on the way down.
The nose brought forth a fairly-heavy spice and rye presence along with a nice floral character. Light citrus peel character as well. All of this carried over into the flavor, which contained more of the citrus and floral components.
Light body with crisp carbonation. Moderate bitterness and a dry finish.
Good brew, certainly worth a try.

3.8/5 rDev -4.5%
Poured into my Tired Hands stem.
Pours a bright, yet hazy orange. Huge fluffy head settles to some soap sud-esque film leaving spotty lacing down the glass.
Smells great....mostly citrus rind and maybe a touch of a pine.
Taste follows through, fresh citrus with a little bitterness at the end. There was an odd aftertaste that I noticed, I can't really describe it except to say it was just a little off.
Mouthfeel is great on this beer. It is medium bodied and slightly creamy. Pretty impressive for the low ABV.
Overall this is really a fine beer. I'm really loving these low ABV, flavor filled beers that are popping up more and more....VT seems to be leading the way in thi area.
