This is my first foreray into Pretty Things. I always see them at Beverage Barn so I decided to give this bomber a shot on a nice, warm late spring afternoon.

The bottle says "Saison American" so the pour was quite wxpected. Extremely cloudy, gold hazy color. Looks highly carbonated though.
The nose had a bready malt dominance. There was always a specific yeast aroma followed by lemon.
The taste was all about the spice. It was quit different that the aroma. Spice an more spice. Then a touch of citrus came through. Pretty refreshing.

Tasty saison. Poured from a bomber into my 668 Neighbor glass. Nice white, one-finger head; light orange coloring.

Smells sweet and tart: a bit of citrus, a bit of yeasty funk.

Taste is very satisfying. I'd love to be barbecuing with this guy, or sitting on the beach watching the waves.

Definitely worth the $7.50 I paid for it.

A light clear yellow in hue, the beer is topped with a sumptuous, short, even head having the consistency and color of stiff, beaten egg whites. Its aroma is negligible. The taste is admirably understated, but that is not to say forgettable. It's a classic, buttered vegetables and lightly blossomy saison, done with refined understatement. The mouthfeel ably complements the flavor--not too smooth, not too prickly. Worthy.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Pours out yellow in color and very translucent with a huge two+ finger white head with good retention and some of the best lacing I have saw in a beer.

Smell is a little fruity with some barnyard with a slight tartness.

Taste is different with spices that are very prominent with a little funk and a tiny bit of fruit but nothing like the nose.

Mouthfeel is very thin as I would expect. Really thinner than most of the beers I have had.

Overall this is a nice beer with the barnyard you would expect with a little fruit and quite a bit of spices. The spices are more prominent than any beer I have drank in a while. Quite nice,

Pours gold with a large white head.
Nose shows herbal and citrus notes, sweet honey and saison yeast. Very inviting.
Very similar flavours; more honey, saison yeast, herbal/spicy hops and some grapefruit/orange peel. An assertive bitterness presents itself in the finish.
Great moderately high carbonation works perfectly.
