375mL into a tulip. Pours a pale hazy yellow w/ a bright white head.

Aroma is intriguing. Lime? Chamomile? Cilantro? Pepper? Orange? I'm getting a lot of surprising smells but the label just says golden raisins and white pepper. Curious...

Taste is likewise complex and unique. Citrus, spice, blood orange, pepper. A rustic, earthy, grassy quality holds it together. Nicely juicy.

Mouthfeel is medium-bodied, balanced.

Overall a very different saison, and enjoyable.
