Thanks to lookrider for the opportunity. Corked and caged 750mL bottle. Pours a glowing summer sun yellow, opaque with yeast but with a dense cap od white that sticks through the entire drink. Terrific.

Yeasty, active carbonation brings up the aroma of orange peel, coriander, powder, ginger and lemon zest. Not much fruit or other complexities here.

Bright lemon zest, orange peel, and powdery yeast and coriander. Very bright. Unobtrusive malt character. Finishes very clean, powdery and palate scrubbing.

Active carbonation, bright and lightens up the yeast considerably. Not detection of alcohol. High carbonation doesn't impede the flavor profile either. Ideal.

Very nice take on a saison, not very complex but a bright beer, perfect refresher. Clean and crisp.
