APPEARANCE: Hazy, warm golden hue with a rich, fluffy head with a lot of lace. It's a very pretty beer!
SMELL: The nose on this beer is both sugary and floral (lavender?), but under that there's a yeasty earthiness.
MOUTHFEEL: Medium-bodied and pretty hoppy. This is a dry beer that sizzles the tongue a bit.
TASTE: Both sweet and grassy. Though no spices are used to the brew this beer, the finish blends a light peppery taste and citrus. The hoppiness is definitely there but balances out nicely with the malted oats used to make this beer. I got a lingering earthy aftertaste with this beer that wasn't bad, but lingered a little too long.
DRINKABILITY: If you like floral, hoppy beers then this is the beer for you. I'd be happy to sip this brew over the course of an entire evening, and I'm generally not a fan of hoppy beers.
VERDICT: A balanced, rustic saison that I think would go best with fish or chicken dishes, but really it'll go with just about anything. It's not an incredibly complex brew, but that's actually one of its strengths. It's a very adaptable saison for a wide range of palates. Another great beer from Pretty Things!

1 PT. 6 FL.. OZ. bottle
Served in a tulip glass
Bottled April 2013
A - It is pale yellow in color and hazy. There are small particles of yeast suspended in it. It is topped with a couple inches of white head.
S - It has a nice fresh lemon scent. I also detect a little must.
T - The taste has some lemon and grass flavors. Then some bitterness sets in. At first I thought the bitterness was too much for this beer, but after half a bottle the flavors are meshing well.
M - Medium.
O - This is a refreshing saison. It hits the spot after working in a near 90° day. The bitterness is more than I care for in this style, but it is not overwhelming and compliments the lemon and must, so I won't complain.
