3.51/5  rDev -6.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

A - Nice cloudy look to a golden orangish brew with a small white head and a tiny bit of sticking.

S - I would not suspect this is a saison, very yeasty, like a triple more than anything else. Not the grass notes I was expecting, more citrus and fruity.

T - If you gave this to me blind folded, I would have guess Belgian Strong Ale or Tripple. Is there such thing as an Imperial Saison or something? Huge belgian yeast and a fruity citrus with a very dry finish. It's fairly tasty, but not classified right.

M - Dry, medium bodied, nicely carbonated.

D - It's not bad, a little too much with the yeast and sweetness to do tons of.

Served on tap at the brew pub in a tulip glass.

This beer is a cloudy, glowing apricot with a thin layer of white head.

The nose is very close to a hefe. I'm picking out chalky citrus, pine, spicy esters, candied fruits, and a tiny bit of alcohol.

The taste follows the nose. Chalky fruits with hits of pine, esters, and more citrus. This isn't striking me as a saison, but it is tasty. It's refreshing and finishes dry and a little bitter.

The mouthfeel is creamy and close to full with a moderate to low level of carbonation.

A tasty brew for sure, but I think it borders a weird hefe/saison vortex. Worth trying and really easy to put down.
