A- pours hazy golden yellow with an off white head, high amounts of carbonation, with tons off bubbles rising to the top of the glass.
S- floral fruity citrus with a hint lemon. Peppery notes on the nose with a pleasant hops at the end
T- front of the tongue, mild bitterness light piney notes large amounts of carbonation and again with the floral notes at the end. Leaves a spicy peppery aftertaste
Overall- pleasant refreshing beer. Defnitely everything i expected from this saison, more impressed for the dry hopped flavors. Awesome stuff

3.84/5 rDev -2.5%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Appearance: The beer pours a very pale gold into my tulip. It’s quite lively, and a fluffy white head perches on top at first, but then drops away pretty quickly, leaving little lacing.
Smell: The first things that I get is a big nose full of hops, followed by a healthy and somewhat surprising dose of citrus. More familiar Belgian spice and grassy notes round it out. Intriguing, to be sure.
Taste: The hops and citrus continue to play a big role, although they reverse their positions in the nose and let the lemon zest take the lead. Big Belgian spices also figure prominently, and a mild tartness plays around the edges. Somewhat surprisingly, there’s also a vinous, white wine-like acidity, which adds to the overall crispness.
Mouthfeel: Medium to high carbonation makes this one pretty lively in the mouth, and the hops and tartness combine for a clean, crisp finish.
Drinkability: High – perfect for a summer day.
