Malts: organic pale,organic caramel
Unmalted: rolled barley

Foggy orange-amber body capped with an awesomely thick frothy head on top. The first thing I notice in the smell is the pale malt base, which is always a great sign for me when it comes to Saisons. Sugar cookies, a pale fruitiness of apples and fresh orange, straw, and light green herbs. The yeast is beautifully mellow, complimenting the other ingredients rather than taking charge. Pale malt comes through nicely in the flavor as well, revealing some honey and dough before transitioning to floral and straw notes. Spiced fruit, citrus rind, a crisp pear juice sweetness, and soapy floral hops. Soft, simple, and lovely. Crisp and moderately bitter resulting in high drinkability. What a delightful beer…no barrel, no funk, nothing to hide its flaws, just a well-crafted Saison that leans a little towards the hoppy side.
