Served in a pint glass at Estelle's in Boston.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a hazy pale yellow with some clarity of bubbles coming up through the glass. Super nice lacing on the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Pepper, yeasty, vanilla, bready, a little funk, and citrus.

Taste: Same as above with a little bitterness and tart notes.

Mouthfeel: Dry, light bodied, medium to high carbonation, a little chewy, mild bitterness, and delicious

Overall: Pretty solid Saison with a little funk and tart to it. I dig it.

Serving type: on-tap
