The bottle describes this new Pretty Things beer as a "rustic golden ale brewed with barley, oats, wheat & rye." The label also indicates that it was bottled in May of this year, so this must be very fresh. It comes out a hazed golden color, with about one finger of white heading. The nose is very earthy, with lots of traces of citrus fruit such as orange and lemon. More fruit comes though in the taste, but it has a definite bitter, dry edge to it much like Jack D'or. The alcohol is very well hidden, though the body is large. Carbonation is bold, and stands up to the large body in a big way. An easy drinker here, though some might be turned off by the complexity exhibited here. Overall, another winner from Pretty Things that I will be revisiting on tap next chance I get.

Poured from bottle into Pretty Things globe/tulip.
Golden amber color with a finger of white head. Nice peppery and slight citrusy saison aromas. Flavors of peppery saison and rye up front with a big malty bready and rye finish. Fairly hopped - spicy saaz like hops maybe? Full malty mouthfeel - maybe a bit heavy but its pleasant. Overall, this is a really nice classic saison. Very enjoyable.
